Tumblr Keyboard Shortcuts

J – Scroll to top of next post

K – Scroll to top of previous post

L – Like a post

Shift-R – Reblog a post (no ability to add your own comments/tags, Alt-Click the reblog icon does this as well)

Z-C – Open a floating “new post” menu without scrolling to top (just hit both keys at the same time)

 

I like using the J,K and L shortcuts for Google+ as they allow me to quickly jump through posts that people have shared and easily find out what’s new.

Most of the shortcuts are tricky at first but the more you practice the easier it will become, try out some of the YouTube shortcuts on video below:

  • Great stuff, Shane. Knew about Google+ shortcuts however Tumblr ones will be useful too.
    I find Google+ formatting styles really useful and the posts get more +1 and comments as well, so yeah do use them.
