Work More Efficiently With The WordPress Visual Editor By Using Shortcuts

A while ago WordPress introduced in Version 4.3 a new feature for the visual text editor. So now it’s possible to use some Markdown-like (similar to Markdown) shortcuts.

If you write an article in the visual editor of WordPress, you can now format your text by typing in shortcuts.

For example, if you type:
## TEXT
in the visual editor of WordPress, it will be replaced by <h2>TEXT</h2>, which looks like this:

TEXT

The following shortcuts are available:

Shortcut Result
## TEXT TEXT becomes a heading H2.
### TEXT TEXT becomes a heading H3.
#### TEXT TEXT becomes a heading H4.
##### TEXT TEXT becomes a heading H5.
###### TEXT TEXT becomes a heading H6.

Courious? Well then try it yourself 😉
