You can locate this box on the top of any Curate.Us page. Alternatively, you can add the clp.ly bookmarklet located at the top of this page to your Bookmarks Bar to create quick clips from the sites you're browsing. Try it.
Once you've added the clp.ly bookmarklet, you can use it to create elegant, formatted quotes to add to your site. The formatting tools give you a wide range of options for displaying your quote. Try it.
Once you've created a clip or quote, you will be taken to a formatting page. Here you can customize your clips and how they're displayed on your site, including sizing, positioning, background colors, and more. You can even add a yellow sticky to your clip to add your thoughts or simply jot down some notes. Try it
Now that your clip or quote has been created and customized, it's time to share it with the world. You can either select a destination or copy and paste the embed code on your site, into email, or onto a bulletin board (in BBcode). Try it
Once you have registered for an account on Curate.Us, you can easily Curate.Us-enable your site. Doing so gives your readers the ability to share your content across the web while giving you the ability to see how and where your content is used. To start, click on the "My Sites" tab in the "My Clips, Quotes & Sites" section of the Curate.Us website. If you've registered for an account, you can try Curate.Us-enabling your site here.
Once you've enabled Curate.Us on your site, your readers can then use the "clip this" button on your site to create clips and quotes from your content to share anywhere on the web with a simple click of the mouse. Try out a "Clip This Story" button on our Curate.Us-enabled blog, here.
In addition to Curate.Us-enabling your site, you may choose to enable the Curatorial Assistant, which generates a small pop-up window asking users if they'd like to format the text they've just copied from your site. Users have the choice to format the text with attribution or not. This will give your readers another way to create formatted quotes easily and automatically adds attribution to copied text. Give it a try on our Curate.Us-enabled blog, here. Simply highlight and copy text to try it.
We track each and every clip and quote, from where it goes to how many times it's been clicked to how many times it's been viewed. With your Curate.Us-enabled site, you can keep track of the analytics on all content from your domain. Simply click on the "Site Stats" tab from the "Site Stats" link in your "My Web Sites" section or the "Site Stats" tab from any clip customization page. You can see an example of Curate.Us analytics, here.
