Topic: “Request Feedback” button vanished | WordPress.com Forums

Too bad, as it was fun while it lasted:

Even worse: the change was not announced, so people find out after the fact. A similar thing happened back in the “Press This” removal process (which got restored).

Some notes on “The WordPress bookmarklet was deprecated. Please delete it from your web browser.” because the `/wp-admin/press-this.php` based URLs look very similar.

The cool things about the “Request Feedback” were these:

  • The reviewer could do without a WordPress.com account: ideal when you have each posts to be reviewed done by a different person
  • No need for a plugin as it functioned out of the box
  • The review looks exactly like it gets posted

The alternatives are:

  • Google docs (which requires a Google account and looks different than the actual post)
  • External plugins (which requires the USD 299/year business plan instead of the USD 99/year premium plan I have)
