One of my visitor asked me that whether he can display Keyboard Keys into posts. Yes, you can do this with CSS code which helps you to control the style and layout of multiple web page all at once.

Thus, you can give original keyboard key effect to any Text or symbol using SWT CSS3 tricks. Therefore, just follow these procedures and make your Posts more dynamic and jaunty. Display keyboard keys in your posts.

Step-2:

Secondly, you have to add these codes where you want to appear the Keyboard key either into your blog posts/pages or any other place.

Remind that you should have to insert codes in HTML view. However, if you want to add codes in Compose mode then just select “Interpret typed HTML” (the radio button) from right side option menu.

A) For Black Keyboard Keys

B) For White Keyboard Keys

<swt-white-kbk>A</swt-white-kbk>

Finally, replace latter “A” with any other character or symbol as you want to display keyboard key in your blog posts. For Example: If you want to show Ctrl + S simple texts as SWT Stylish Keyboard Keys, you need to add these codes.

<swt-black-kbk>Ctrl</swt-black-kbk>+<swt-black-kbk>S</swt-black-kbk>

Enjoy!
