Adding Special Characters

You are typing along and realize that you need to add a trademark  ™ character to your post, or maybe a copyright  ©  character to a brand, or may be you are writing about the FIT Bloggers blog and you want to say how much you ♥ WordPress.  How do you do it?

Symbols Pod

When you are adding a new post, notice on the lower right side of the window there is a new option for HTML Special Characters.  Instead of trying to figure out keyboard shortcuts, or the HTML code for a symbol, follow these easy directions.

By default, you will only see a small preview of available characters.  Click on the “See More” link at the bottom of the HTML Special Characters window to expand the options.

Place your cursor in your post where you would like to insert the character

Click the character in the HTML Special Character window.

Done! You should now see your special character in your post.
