I am pretty excited to see WordPress 4.3’s new formatting shortcuts. It makes blogging life lot easier with newly added formatting shortcuts. Here I am going to list those shortcuts for you.
- Use ## to make a text h2, ### to make a text h3 and all the way to h6. (By the way no h1 is available, so you can’t just use one #, perhaps another approach ?)
- Use * (asterisk) or – (dash) to create an unordered list. Make sure you give a space after the asterisk / dash. However I found it little bit difficult to create an unordered list with dash, so I always use asterisk.
- Use 1. or 1) to make an ordered list. Make sure there’s no space between the 1 and dot but a space after the dot. However I found it little bit difficult to create an ordered list with 1) over 1(dot). So I always use 1(dot).
- Use > to make a quoted text. Once again make sure you give a space after the greater than sign.
These are the shortcuts what I have found so far, but there will be more in future. Text formatting shortcuts is not the only new feature in WordPress 4.3. Watch this video below to see new features in WordPress 4.3. Continue reading
