Description

When you go to select the code that Press This offers in the Tools Section next to the Press This drag-able bookmarklet, the text to COPY into a new bookmark that you create on your mobile phone (or computer) is within a textarea but on the iPhone you cannot select the text because it's "readonly" (readonly="readonly").

You need to remove the readonly="readonly" from the textarea and you can then select the text on your mobile device to copy it and paste it.

This is on line 63 of wp-admin/tools.php

<textarea class="js-pressthis-code" rows="5" cols="120" readonly="readonly" aria-labelledby="pressthis-code-desc"><?php echo htmlspecialchars( get_shortcut_link() ); ?></textarea>

It's the only way I know to make textfields fully selectable on the iPhone. (Might be the same on Android, not sure.)

And so what if the text can be altered when you click in the field, all text can be altered wen you copy and paste it anyway.

Also, it does say below the text field to copy the "Direct Link (best for Mobile)" which is not necessary to say, as the Javascript bookmarklet works fine on mobile. (with the one exception that the popup window will appear behind your current page if it's already open, similar to how desktop browser will put popup windows in existing tabs if the page is already open, like when you are previewing a page on Wordpress that you are editing.)

The bookmarklet is selectable and works nicely on latest stock Android/Chrome.

@undergroundnetwork - Have you updated to iOS 9? Any chance in behavior there?

I upgraded to iOS9 and there is no improvement. Still cannot do a copy/select all.
