This plugin lets you save your posts, pages, theme and plugin files, widgets, menus, etc. in the most natural way: pressing Ctrl+S (or Cmd+S on Mac).
I’ve coded this plugin because I was tired of pressing Cmd+S and then realize Chrome was trying to save the whole webpage
After coding this up, I’ve found in the plugin directory two plugins that did the same thing, but each one had some flaws that convinced me to publish mine.
It is also so smart that saves as draft unpublished posts/pages and updates the ones that are already public.
Also adds a little tooltip on the buttons that can be “clicked” with Ctrl+S or Cmd+S.
- Upload the folder
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Is it really so simple to install and use?
You can bet it is.
- Where can I use the shortcut?
If it’s not a post, page, widget, menu or link the plugin checks for the #submit selector (used, for instance, in theme, plugin and profile).
