Share Readmill Highlights to Your WordPress Site

At WordPress.com, we love to read. We’re delighted to announce that our partner Readmill has implemented sharing to WordPress in the latest version of their iOS app, already available in the App Store. Now you can highlight passages in books and PDFs you’re reading in Readmill and share them on your WordPress.com or Jetpack-enabled WordPress.org site. Let’s walk through how it works.

First, log in to your Readmill.com account to authorize a connection to your WordPress account. In Readmill, go to Settings under your avatar. On the Settings page, click on Connections. Next to WordPress, click on the Connect button:

clickconnect

Enter your WordPress credentials and click on Authorize:

wordpresscomconnect

Choose whether to allow highlight sharing, reading sharing or both:

sharehighlightsautomatically

Now you’re ready to share favorite passages directly to your WordPress site. Highlight your passage in Readmill. On the sharing screen, select the WordPress logo, then click on Done:

IMG_0338

And, like magic, your highlight appears as a post on your WordPress.com site or your Jetpack-enabled WordPress.org site:

highlightshared

Happy highlighting and sharing!

    Besides the fact that you used my favorite story to illustrate the process, this is absolutely fantastic. I didn’t know about Readmill and now I can link it to WordPress. So simple. So perfect.

    Krista,
    I would love to know how you made the “cartoon” avatar of yourself.

    Is this Readmill thing is only for iOS users? Is there anything similar for Android users?

    Interesting. Certainly can easily boost the number posts you publish quickly – which should mean better stats?
    And share some nice finds, of course.
