This ‘Tools’ menu tutorial covers:

  • ‘Press This’–a web browser bookmarking feature
  • Creating a post with ‘Press This’
  • The available ‘Import’ modules
  • How to export some or all of your site’s content

The ‘Tools’ button in the WordPress dashboard gives options for quickly sharing information from your web browser, importing content from other sites (WordPress or otherwise), and exporting the content on your site–as a backup or for moving to another site.

‘Press This’ is a bookmark that you can add to your browser as a quick way of making posts out of content you come across on other sites. When you click on the ‘Press This’ link it creates a post with the title pre-filled for you and a link to the page you are visiting in the body of your post. You can add your own information, edit and change the content and publish the post immediately or just save it as a draft for future use.

'Press This' helps you quickly generate a post from content you want to share from another site.

The ‘Export’ feature is a tool for exporting the posts or pages on your site individually or to back up your entire database–including posts, pages, comments, custom fields, terms, navigation menus and custom posts. The ‘Download Export File’ button will create an XML file you can save as a content backup or to move the content from your existing site to a new site.

It was fast! The tech was knowledgeable. They gave me a list of things to do to make the site more secure. Thank you so much!


They had my site back up and running in less than 2 hours. It was well worth the money spent to have my malware issues resolved.
