Editor Keyboard Shortcut and advanced editor toolbar

  1. For all of us in wordpress.com, there is a shortcut that will ‘unleash’ the editor toolbar.

    Toggle simple/advanced toolbar:
    firefox 2 alt + shift + v
    firefox 1.5 alt + v
    IE alt + b

    you can change the font color and include special symbols.

    “More” function:
    Firefox 2 alt + shift + t
    firefox 1.5 alt + t

    “add page” function:
    firefox 2 alt + shift + g
    firefox 1.5 alt + g

    More shortcuts can be seen when you hover your mouse on the buttons.

    Why WordPress.com have not revealed this officially, that I don’t know. These functionalities are available with direct downloads of wordpress for independent users, and I found them in wordpress.com by accidental clicks. Then they took the advanced editor functionality off wordpress.com, and only put them up again only recently. Please tell me what I don’t know.

  2. on IE 7, it's alt+v :)

  3. Engtech blogged it a while ago.

    and it has been there for quite some time.

    "Then they took the advanced editor functionality off wordpress.com, and only put them up again only recently"
    ?
    We didn't remove anything..

  4. I just realized that alt + b was changed to alt + v some time ago, and I took it wrong assuming that wordpress took it out.

    The post by engtech was inspired by a post I did in the forum (as mentioned by him in his post)

    link to original forum is here.

    I don't believe wordpress.com has announced this officially yet. Why hide this feature?
