Post and review stories quickly, from any Web page!

What is the NewsTrust bookmarklet?

The NewsTrust Bookmarklet is a link you can add to your browser's bookmarks toolbar. It lets you post and review stories in a popup window, wherever you are. It's easy to install, and is a real time saver.

What does it do?

The NewsTrust bookmarklet lets you post a news story to NewsTrust from its original web page. Clicking the bookmarklet will bring up the "Story Edit" form with the story's title and URL already filled in, along with any other information our tools can gather about the story. If the story had been previously posted by another member, you will be taken directly to the Review form.
