This plugin Works great! Saving things to Pocket is so easy. This plugin shares your Pocket "My List" on your website. Thus, it is a very quick and easy way to share articles from wherever on your website -- using Pocket to simplify the process. During setup, the Pocket API process could become confusing, but the plugin made it very easy. Just follow the steps outlined in the settings area. There are two ways to display what is stored in your listing: 1. Automatically, via a widget. Displays in an automatically updated text listing, arranged vertically (1 item per line). 2. Fill out a simple form, selecting a few basic options, and then the plugin generates HTML of whatever you've stored in your Pocket "My List," or Archive, etc. The HTML can be edited easily, if you like, and "copy & pasted" into the Text window of any Page or post. I only wish that the listing included images saved in Pocket, but for now anyway, it is text only.
