Migrating to Org2Blog

WordPress is a powerful and satisfying writing and publishing platform. After learning Org-Mode, I wanted to use Org-Mode for writing and WordPress for publishing. Org2Blog makes that easy.

There are a lot […]

Easily Go To and Return From Headlines in Org-Mode

Quit using goto-line and isearch to navigate in your Org-Mode document. I didn’t want to use Helm or Imenu to do it and Org-Mode has a built in solution with org-goto. Be sure to bind the “pop” key very close-by to make it symmetrical and fast. (define-key org-mode-map (kbd “s-u”) #’org-goto) (define-key org-mode-map (kbd “s-U”) […]
