WordPress Tip For Speedily Moderating Comments: Keyboard Shortcuts

A new feature in WordPress 2.7 and on WordPress.com, is the ability to moderate comments using keyboard shortcuts. A few of the popular shortcuts include:

  • Pressing j moves the current selection (light-blue background) down.
  • Pressing k moves the current selection (light-blue background) up.
  • Pressing a approves the currently selected comment.
  • Pressing s marks the current comment as spam.
  • Pressing d deletes the current comment.

For any site that regularly receives dozens or even hundreds of comments per post, this new feature can dramatically speed up the comment moderation process.

Mark Jaquith, a lead developer on the WordPress project, put together a screencast to show how this new feature works:
