Did you know that there’s a secret editing toolbar in newer versions of WordPress? There is! With the second row of buttons you can:
- change font colors
- add special characters
- undo and redo
And that’s just part of the goodies that await you with the super secret second toolbar.
So how do you actually see this wonderful toolbar? I’m glad you asked. If you’re on WordPress 2.1 or above log into WordPress and write or manage a post or page. Put your cursor in the text area. That’s where the words of your post or page appear. Simultaneously press the Alt-Shift-V keys.
If you’re trying this and all you see is a “v” then you didn’t press on the keys all at the same time. Try holding down the Alt and Shift keys and then with your other hand click on the “v”.
Once you’ve managed the contortions necessary to click on all those buttons at the same time you’ll be part of the secret toolbar club!
