    I think I need a Hot Key?

    Hi,

    OK, I already searched web pages, It was way over my head on the stuff I found. Can someone help me make a Hot key I think that is what I want. Not for sure if that is what I am looking for or not.

    Here is what I would like it to do.

    I want to press like (Ctrl E) any two keys will be fine this is just a sample.

    What it will do is change a line of type from (width="800" height="400") to (width="576" height="288")

    I will be online using firefox when this need to happen. This help me speed up some web posts I am doing. That way I won't need to edit that line in each post I am doing. When it find the line in the post it will just change it.

    I need this info in a simple step by step for super dummy me.

    Thanks in advance.

    We don't allow no stinkin' super dummies in here, so you do not qualify for that moniker.

    I don't know if you can do what you want to do in FireFox.

    If you are doing this in WordPress, and looking for those dimensions in your posts, your could use the Search and Replace plugin. That will scan the database and make all the changes in one pass. Just make sure you do a database backup first, just in case you screw something up.

    Hi,

    Yes, I am a dummy sometimes. If you search for the right thing you find what you are looking for. I was searching for hot keys and all the info I was finding was making my head spin. Wasted over two hours.

    If you search for "Search and Replace in Firefox" you will find on page one.

    Here is what I was wanting https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/fir...e-for-firefox/ Best of all it works This will cut edit time down immensely for me.

    Give it a try if you want to do some quick editing on a page.

    Sami

    P.S. Thanks for giving me the correct key word to search for

    There you go. I didn't consider that there may be a FireFox add-on that does that.
