The following tutorial video describes one of the new features of WordPress version 4.3 – the editing shortcuts. These shortcuts allow you quickly create headers, unordered and numbered lists, and quotes while working within the Post or Page editor.
Shortcut for creating a header
Login to the Administrator
Click on the Posts or Pages editor (or edit an existing post/page)
The shortcut for adding a header is the ## sign.
## = header 2
### = header 3
#### = header 4
Note: The header 1 does not work with a single # sign
The shortcut for a bullet is either an ‘*’ or a ‘-‘ followed with a space. Here’s an example:
1. *+ (space) – creates the bullet
2. Clicking on return then creates the next bullet
3. Clicking on return twice will end the list
Note: You can also use a dash in place of the asterisk.
The shortcut for a numbered list can be done in two ways:
– Typing in the number followed by a period
– Typing in the number followed by a parentheses
Here’s an example of how it works.
The final shortcut that we’re going to show is how to offset a quote in a post.
Click on the “greater than” symbol and then type in your quote
Click on return and you will see your quote offset with a solid bar
