How to Install the Browser Add-ons

The Oktopost Browser Add-Ons allow you to share content directly from your browser without ever having to leave the page. Oktopost currently offers two native extensions for Chrome and Firefox as-well-as a bookmarklet for Safari, Internet Explorer and other browsers.

Chrome Extension

  1. Visit the Oktopost Extension page on the Chrome Web Store.
  2. Click on Add to Chrome.
  3. A dialog will appear to show you data that the extension will be able to access.
  4. Click Add to grant the extension access to your data and install the extension.

To use the extension, click the icon that will appear on the right of the address bar.

Firefox Add-On

  1. Visit the Oktopost Add-On page on Mozilla.
  2. Click on Add to Firefox.
  3. A dialog will appear to confirm the installation.
  4. Click Install and restart your browser.

To ensure the Add-On is visible on the top address bar click on the top right hand menu → Customize → Drag the Oktopost icon to the right of the address bar.

Safari, Internet Explorer and Others

Go to your Oktopost dashboard and click on Add to Favorites.

Then, open your Favorites menu, and edit the newly created item. Replace the address with the following code snippet:

javascript:
(function()%7Bvar%20a=document.getElementsByTagName('head')
%5B0%5D,b=document.createElement('script');
b.type='text/javascript';
b.src='https://app.oktopost.com/assets/js/plugins/bookmark.js?'+
Math.floor(Math.random()*99999);a.appendChild(b);%7D)();void%200

Once this is done, simply click on the bookmarklet every time you want to share a web page. This will open the Oktopost post console on top of the current window and allow you to share the content directly.
