How to fix the “Press This” 404 Error

Just earlier today I found a news story that I wanted to write about so I tried using my handy dandy Press This bookmarklet.   Imagine my surprise when I got a 404 error instead of my editor.  I was beginning to think that my issue was the browser that I was using so I switched from Chrome to Firefox and got the same result.  I know very little about coding and html so I went off searching for a fix.   I found lots of complaining about the Press This 404 error.   I found a few articles where people were suggesting different plugins and when I gave one a try I got the same result.   So the searching continued.   I found so many articles telling me to look into a code but never mentioned where the code was.  About 20 minutes later I stumbled across this article and it was the magic answer I was looking for.   The code I needed to change edit was in the setting of the bookmarklet that I had installed.    It’s amazing how simple the fix was.  It seriously took me two minutes, if that to update Press This in Chrome and Firefox.
