This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



If you are using WordPress’ admin-section in english keyboard-shortcuts some of the the top-level pages will be:
d a Dashboard
p o Posts
m e Media
p a Pages
c o Comments
? Help section
And so on.. It uses the first two letters of the label to create the keyboard shortcut. Which means the shortcuts will make sense regardless of language.

Known Issues

  • Combo-collisions. Example: If Settings is open, the top-level menu-item Media collides with Settings -> Media. This will probably be solved with modifier keys.


  • Bring useful keyboard-shortcuts to wp-admin regardless of language.
  • Bring useful keyboard-shortcuts to individual admin-screens.
