Evernote Site Memory Plugin for WordPress

The Slocum Design Studio development team is excited to announce the availability of our newly developed WP Evernote Site Memory plugin for WordPress!

Last week, Evernote announced the availability of their Site Memory Button. With this, users of Evernote can clip a website’s content into their Evernote notebook with the click of a button, and the website’s owner has full control over what is clipped. This was a wonderful announcement for site owners everywhere, because until now, it has been tough to control how your website is clipped into Evernote for users to read and reference later.

Evernote is a great service that the entire Slocum Design Studio team uses. The app is great to capture anything on on the web, a photo via an iPhone, or to jot down quick notes during a meeting. Evernote is cross platform and runs on Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPads and even Android phones. We would not be able to get through the day without Evernote. At a mere $45 dollars a year (premium version; free available) – it’s a great buy!

Although the folks at Evernote have made the Site Memory button as simple to configure as possible, not everyone knows how to code HTML, CSS, PHP and JavaScript. SDS decided to develop a plugin that does the dirty work for you. Upon activating the plugin, a clip it button is automatically added to the bottom of every post and page on your WordPress blog. No knowledge of HTML, CSS, PHP or JavaScript is needed.

At SDS, we use WordPress for clients in search of Blogs and CMS web design; we’re happy to give back to the WordPress and Evernote communities by developing the WP Evernote Site Memory plugin. The plugin is available for download below. To see it in action, test it out on our website. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post them below.

    Great plugin, thanx fo that!

  2. Hadee Roslan says:

    I’ve downloaded the plugin and installed it into one of my website. However, when I clicked on the Clip image, nothing happens. Upon further checking, I discovered that the javascript file definition is not loaded into html.

    So, I manually entered it into the header section of my theme and only then it works.

    At first, I thought it was a bug in the plugin. However, I checked a little bit further and discovered a missing command in the theme I’m using. The theme was missing the wp_footer call in the footer file.

    Added the call into the footer file and saw the javascript definition in the footer section of the html. So, everything is working fine so far.

    Probably need to do some themes tweaking. It’s clipping more than just the article. Even the sidebars are clipped.

    Great plugin, though.

    • Jonathan Desrosiers says:

      wp_footer is a very important function to call in your theme. It is used by many plugins as a way to include scripts at the end of a page to perform different tasks. I recommend that you call it before your closing body tag in all themes. I am glad that you had this issue and contacted us about this because I am going to add this to the FAQ’s.

      As for clipping more than the content, the plugin is set by default to use the post-## ID. It is possible this is not in your theme as well. In the div that surrounds your post you can insert id=”post-” into it. This will give it an ID with that post ID. You can see this implemented in the default wordpress theme. You are currently assigning a class of post to that container, but unfortunately Evernote will only clip from an ID.

      Upon examining your code however, you could simply set the contentID setting to “main”, and it would clip only your content. However the comment section would also be clipped using this solution.

  3. Patricia says:

    I’m testing this on my blog and did add the wp_footer call. But when I click on the image, nothing happens. What am I missing?

    • Jonathan Desrosiers says:

      Hi Patricia,
      I took a look at the blog you linked to, and it appears that you are calling wp_footer twice as your source code has duplicate content where that is called. If you fix that and it still doesn’t work, we can troubleshoot further.

  4. Patricia says:

    I had added in the second call because nothing happened when I clicked. I have now removed it, but still, nothing happens! Thanks for your help :)

    • Jonathan Desrosiers says:

      Patricia,
      I ask that you start a support ticket for this issue on the WordPress support forums so that we can continue our conversation over there. It is a more appropriate forum for our ongoing dialogue, and it is easier for others to follow along if they are experiencing a similar issue. When you submit the issue, please include the description you used initially here, and I can respond with some more pointers. When you submit the post I will be notified automatically.

    Works perfectly, thank you so much for putting this together. Couldn’t find the plugin by searching within the plugins Add panein inside wordpress though. Getting it added into that directory will improve the take-up I recon as it’s so much easier to install the plugins from inside wordpress itself rather than having to FTP it to the server.

    Fantastic Job though! congrats!

    • Jonathan Desrosiers says:

      Hi Shaun,
      Thanks for pointing this out. I am not sure why it does not appear in the search yet. If you search by “newest” it comes up, but does not for relevance. I am going to continue to research this, but thank you for taking the extra step to find and download the plugin. Enjoy!

  6. Great plugin. It looks and works great! And it just further extends my ability to use and share Evernote. Great idea.

  8. This is a great plugin. Thank you. One thing I noticed is that the Clip icon is included in the RSS feed item, but of course doesn’t work. I checked your feed, and it’s showing up there as well.

    Have you thought about having the icon be outside the content which is included in the RSS feed? Or is there a way to hide it?

    Thanks,
    Rick

    • Jonathan Desrosiers says:

      Hi Rick,
      This is on our list of updates for the next release. Thanks for providing your feedback, and we are glad that you like the plugin!

  9. Jonathan,
    I’m looking forward to the next update.

    Rick

  10. Simon Fodden says:

    I’ve looked here but can’t find: is there a way to alter the location of the button?

    • Jonathan Desrosiers says:

      Hi Simon,
      Right now there is no way to change where the plugin displays the clip button unless you change the code of the plugin.
      In the next version, we will include a setting in the admin panel that will allow you to choose where you want the to appear.
      Stay tuned for updates!
