As a part of the March Joomla! Extension review I picked up a copy of Twentronix Shortcuts extension and it is fantastic. It is a quick and easy way to create shortcuts in the administrator area of your website to quickly navigate around the website or perform certain actions.

Twentronix Shortcuts is a 'revolutionary' Joomla! extension which speeds up administrative tasks with keyboard shortcuts! It's user friendly, fully adjustable, very powerful and it will save you a lot of time!

Twentronix Shortcuts uses shortcut types to easily create shortcuts, without the need to know how they work. Various predefined shortcut types are available. If you are a developer you could even create your own custom shortcut types by using the powerful API of Twentronix Shortcuts.

Main features:
★ Keyboard shortcuts
★ Categories (assigning to multiple profiles is supported)
★ Profiles
★ Quickly import predefined shortcuts

Shortcut types:
★ Components (purge expire cache, global check-in, log out)
★ Custom (JavaScript)
★ Navigation -> Redirect (component, frontend, level up, URL)
★ Plugins (Cache Cleaner, Debug, Twentronix Shortcuts Cheat Sheet)
★ Tools (archive, cancel, checkin, delete, edit, featured, help, new, options, publish, save, save & close, save & new, save as copy, unpublish, etc)

Keyboard shortcut operators:
★ Single key (e.g. ctrl, alt, command, option, f1, left, a, etc.)
★ Key combinations (e.g. ctrl+s)
★ Key sequences (e.g. e m)
★ Combinations of keys with key sequences (e.g. ctrl+s a b)
-!- Keyboard shortcuts which are reserved by the operating system or browser can NOT be used!

★ One-click live update
★ Easy to setup & customize
★ Extensive documentation (also available in PDF format)
★ Install and use on unlimited websites
