Summer of Love this Week: The ESC Hotkey

Holy moly! Temperatures in our neck of the woods are expected to hit 109 degrees today. The Summer of Love keeps on rolling and the features keep on flowing. Today, we're announcing an awesome little treat we've added to LightCMS. It's our first hotkey!

The Versatile ESC Hotkey

Perhaps you've experienced a situation like the following. You're viewing your LightCMS website and you notice something you want to edit, but you're not logged in. To get logged in, you type "/login" into the address bar following your site's domain. But then, after you login, you're now on the home page, not the page you want to edit. So, you re-navigate to the previous page where you can finally make your changes.

If you've been wishing for a faster way to get logged in and start editing we've got you covered.with the new ESC Hotkey. Now, when you're looking at that page you want to edit, simply hit ESC and you'll be taken to your login page. Once logged in, you'll be automatically redirected to the page you were viewing!

But that's not the only trick up our sleeve. The new ESC Hotkey is a very versatile friend. It also performs the following tasks:

  • If you're logged in and looking at one of your pages, the ESC Hotkey will toggle been the preview and edit modes.
  • If you're viewing any system setting screen, the ESC Hotkey will cancel and return you to the page you were editing.

The ESC Hotkey is already live and active in your LightCMS account. Give it a try and let us know what you think in the comments below!
