Do you find it annoying when you scroll down too far in the WordPress posts screen that you cannot publish without scrolling back up? This can slow down the process, but it’s not necessary to scroll back to the top of the screen to update or publish your posts. With the right plugin, you can update and publish from the bottom of the screen with ease.
Using the Update from Bottom Plugin
Before you go any further, you will need to download and install the Update from Bottom Plugin. After you have activated the plugin, you can simply go to the “add new” screen under posts to see the new option.
You may have to actually add a post and schedule/publish it to see the buttons on the original try. This is a small glitch the plugin creator is working on, but once you add your post, you will see the buttons at the bottom of the screen.
The “To Top” button will also show up. If you click this button, it will take you back up to the top of the post edit screen. This can come in handy if you want to save the post as a draft or make other adjustments before updating or publishing the post. Both buttons can help to speed up the editing and publishing process.
Your original buttons for publishing won’t change and you will be able to publish as you normally would, as well. However, these buttons will come in handy because they will be found at the bottom of the screen. This can save quite a bit of time when you need to fill in plugins below the post and you want to publish or update the post quickly.
Many find this most helpful with the SEO plugins they use because you have to fill in metaboxes below the post. Once these are filled in, you would normally have to scroll all the way back up the post edit page to publish or update your post. However, with this plugin, you can simply click the update or publish button from the bottom of the screen.
Now you know how to use the Update From Bottom WordPress plugin to add the publish/update buttons to the bottom of the screen. Use this plugin with your WordPress site to save time and get things done just a little faster.
