This plugin lets you save your posts, pages, theme and plugin files 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 :S
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It is also so smart that saves as draft unpublished posts/pages and updates the ones that are already public.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 really so simple to install and use?
You can bet it is.
- Where the shortcut is enabled?
If it’s not a post, page, widget or link the plugin checks for the #submit or input[name=submit] selector (used in for instance theme, plugin and profile).
This should be default out of the box. Muscle memory is the best.
even on custom post types
This plugin just save me so much time. I have a 18 programmable button mouse and now I update pages with one click. If I saw you you I would kiss you!
This is a perfect solution for utilizing the other WordPress shortcuts so you don’t have to leave your keyboard as much. Thank you!
Thanks, this is just what I needed!
Even though it hasn’t been updated in a while, it works. So if you want this functionality, use it!

Fixed stupid bug removing a single ‘!’
Updated plugin to work with the latest WP (3.9.2)
* Refactored PHP to simply add a script.
* Refactored to save/publish any page/post/link/comment/widget/whatever.
Worked pretty well, but now it’s awesome:
* removed dependency from external libraries (except for jQuery which is anyway loaded by WP backend)
* enabled shortcut in Themes and Plugins editor
* added tooltip on shortcut-enabled buttons
First version. Should work pretty well already.
