Keyboard Shortcuts (Ctrl+B / Ctrl+I / Ctrl+U) for Formatting

Post by grndslm »

Are these keyboard shortcuts, commonly found in VBulletin forums, not possible with phpbb??

I'm thinking about making a new forum, and I'm so attached to these shortcuts, I'm inclined to think that others might have the same tendencies as myself.

Any solution within phpbb itself?

Those are already implemented (access keys). But every browser has another key combination to trigger them: in MSIE you have ALT+key, in FFOX I think it's the same, in OPER you press SHIFT+ESC+key. Get Opera, press SHIFT+ESC and you see an overview of all access keys to the current site. For the phpBB posting editor we have:
H = Board Index
E = User Control Panel
X = Logout
B =
I =
U =
Q = [quote]
C =

Code: Select all

L = [list]
O = [list=]
Y = [*]
P = [Img]
W = [URL]
K = Save draft
S = Submit

You would need to go to a support site for your browser because it is not a feature that has anything to do with phpBB.

Why I would need to go to the browser support?

I created another BBCode tag [t], for math equations?

How can I add this new key shortcut, for example ALT+T?
