WordPress Access Keys Plugin

The WordPress Access Keys Plugin a allows you to add access keys to pages and categories to improve accessibility of your WordPress website. This works with any page or category list that is called with wp_list pages and wp_list_categories respectively. This plugin works in all WordPRess versions from 2.1 – 2.5.

Demo:
The About page on this site has an access key of 6 and the site map has an access key of 3.

Download:
Access Keys version 1.0

Installation:

  1. Download the zip file, unzip it and upload to your wp-content/plugins folder
  2. Upload to your plugin directory.
  3. Activate.
  4. Go to the Admin Menu under Manage named Access Keys.
  5. Read the instructions.

    I desperately needed this to work for Links as well, so I’ve modified the plugin. Email me and I can contribute the updated code.

    Excellent plug-in. I have used it on my site and am very pleased with it with one exception – the ‘0’ (zero) access key does not get written to the page links. I checked your site too and it exhibits the same symptom. All of your access keys as published on your accessibility page with the exception of ‘0’, ‘Accessibility’, are written.

    Very good job. Thank you.

    I would propose another function -> to add given name of the accesskey to the title attribute.

    Regards…

    Sadly this doesn’t work with WP 2.7 as there is no way of accessing the admin panel for it now that Manage has been removed from the WP-Admin menu! Any chance of a fix so it appears under, say Settings?

    Needs to be updated for those of us using Wp2.7 and furthermore should be set for Wp2.8; otherwise, I like where this plug in is headed! I would also suggest that it be set up to make other elements accessible (such as an email form for visitors to subscribe) for example.

    Hi! I’ve the same problem with WP 2.7! :(

    Is there any chance to put the link on the admin menu?
    Or maybe is there a way to access to the “plugin page” via URL?

    Thanks in advance ;)

  • GG

    Yes… in WP 2.8 the admin panel is under Posts. Not terribly logical but it works.

    Excellent plug-in. I have used it on my site and am very pleased with it with one exception the “0”² (zero) access key does not get written to the page links.

    I was searching about your topic, ” WordPress Access Keys Plugin ” at one of the various weblogs I retain in my website reader. You are just about in complete agreement with them. It isn’t really what I thought, however I’m recognizing now that I’m most certainly wrong… intriguing..

    Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?
