#38410 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Press This direct-link is off-screen on mobile

I went looking for the direct link to Press This on my iPhone 7+, and found what I think is a UX improvement.

Because the Direct Link is off-screen, and because this page is less familiar to me, I assumed there was no more direct link because it was below the fold (I'll attach a screenshot.)

On mobile, the dragging still doesn't seem to work, and pasting the JavaScript into the address bar seems like a last-ditch effort that's almost worth hiding entirely behind a "Nothing working? Try this other weird way…" link or button.

Maybe we should do some UA sniffing to optimize (or reorder) the output of this page for the current device, or maybe we could add a metabox to the Add New post screen with more concise steps instead, to promote its use from the place everyone already goes?

Good suggestion, but per #41689, Press This is being removed from core. Gonna close as wontfix.
