[resolved] Possibiliy and limitation (9 posts)

    Very interesting plugin - I plan to make a review on it - but a little frustrating too.
    Example: to write a new post, I have to use too shortcuts (p > n). But with one click, I have the same result. So, what's the best ? One click or two shortcodes... Hard to decide.

    Second "problem": when arriving on edit post page, there is no way to use the shortcuts.

    Hi Li-An,

    Great points, I appreciate the feedback. And I have many thoughts on the matter :) As do many others (e.g. http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/2008/03/revisiting-keyboard-vs-the-mouse-pt-1.html).

    Speaking from personal experience, hitting two keys in quick succession is FAR faster than mousing (moving my hand to the mouse, then moving the mouse, then homing in on where I want to hover, then letting the hover sub-menu appear, then moving to the sub-menu item, then clicking). Pretty sure the hotkey method would win any race :)

    As for the second "problem," just use your tab keys. The intro video mentions that the hotkeys are disabled whenever your cursor is inside a "typing" field (e.g. textareas, inputs) - just use your tab key to move in or out of your inputs/textareas and the hotkey functionality automatically toggles on and off.

    Definitely let me know if you have any further questions or concerns - the feedback is great. I put a lot of time into planning and implementing this plugin, and I find it works GREAT for me when developing new sites. Would love to know how it works for others like yourself too.

    Thanks again!
    - Mickey

    Thanks for your answers.

    I had to desactivate it as it breaks File Gallery :-( http://wordpress.org/plugins/file-gallery/

    Hi again,

    I just installed and activated File Gallery, and it seems to be working fine alongside WP Hotkeys. Can you tell me how exactly it's breaking? Any JS errors you see? Any particular configuration you have? Any other info I can use to debug?

    Thanks a ton! That's why this is version 0.9.x still :)

    Hi Li-An,

    So I took a look at this issue and it appears there was a small JS error causing it. I just applied the fix and updated to version 0.9.2, so it should be all set! Please have a look and let me know if you're still encountering the issue. Thanks!

    - Mickey

    A little better but it does continue to break FileGallery. In File Gallery, you can put an image in the plugin field and, then, the files uploaded are shown as thumbnails you can select and so on. When your plugin is activated - 0.9.2 - the field shows the classic WP media management window.

    Hi again,

    Hmmm, well I'm having these same issues even without WP Hotkeys installed, particularly I get the following JS error:

    Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'props' of undefined

    Furthermore, it appears that others are also experiencing various issues with the latest versions of File Gallery:

    You're certain that File Gallery works fine for you when WP Hotkeys is disabled? Since I can't reproduce the issue you're describing, it would be very helpful if you could send me some more info about your setup, any JS errors you're getting, etc. Thanks so much for the help!

    I have no issue with the last version of File Gallery but maybe it's not the "official" as I'm translator on this plugin. I can give you access to the test site. Send me your mail to lian00[at]gmail[dot]com
