Keyboard shortcut to convert text to URL?

Post by Shohreh » Tue Jun 17, 2014 11:36 am

Hello

I'm a regular user of a PhpBB-based forum and noticed that, unlike other applications, PhpBB doesn't let users 1) type some text, 2) select it, 3) click on an option to turn it into a hyperlink, 4) type the URL, and 5) have PhpBB turn the text into an hyperlink.

Instead, it appears that PhpBB expects users to 1) stop typing, 2) click on the option 3) enter the text and the URL, and 4) submit.

As a work-around, is there a keyboard shortcut to open the URL dialog pre-filled with the text, so that I would only have to paste the URL and submit?

Thank you.

Please do not link to Abandoned mods.


1. Type the text
2. Highlight the text
3. Click the URL button
4. Type the URL inside the first tag.

Is that not what you are asking for?

Thanks, but the forum there uses a WYSIWYG bar, different from the WYSIWYM here:

I don't know which version of PhpBB they're using.

Selecting the text before clicking on the HTML icon doesn't pre-fill the text, which is cumbersome.

That would be from some sort of WYSIWYG mod. You would need to ask in the support area for that mod.
Standard phpBB uses the textbox and bbcodes you see here.

The editor supports access keys for ages already:

For me ALT+SHIFT+W would be the same as clicking the URL button, and so on.
