Save and Close

Description

Does what it says on the tin!

So what is the plugin? The name says it all really, this just adds a Save and Close button to all pages, posts and custom post types. We’ve done away with the click so no longer do you need to hit “Update” or “Publish” then click back your post/page listing. Save and Close will just take you right back to your list of posts! Simples!

At Lightbulb we love to give a little back and this is our way of saying thanks to WordPress. Also to all of our comrades populating websites or doing lots of edits this one is for you! Saving those precious seconds and making your lives happy and RSI free.

Old but still works

Just installed to my 4.5.2 and it worked great then upgraded to 4.5.3 and still works wow after years of no updates it’s still working. Glad I gave this a try. Would be cool if author came back and adjusted the update/close button to be on the same line as the normal update button so it takes up less room but still great pluggin.

Great plugin, thank you

Used to have Save & Close button in Joomla and was very frustrated, when none was found in WordPress. This little plugin helped me restore my belief in humankind. Thank you!

P.S.: Works perfectly on WP 4.5.2 despite that it hasn’t been updated for quite a while.
