Keyboard shortcut remapping on vB ?

  1. When creating a thread or replying to one vB has a keyboard shortcut that's by default ALT + S which is like clicking on "Post Reply", etc.

    I had been using it for a while but recent versions of Firefox use the keyboard short ALT + S for the history tab in the menu. Is it possible to remap the keyboard shortcut of vB ?

    I was unaware of this feature, let me look that up tomorrow. Anybody else using it?

    I had tried to use it a few times, without success. So I gave up. But it would be a nice feature, for those of us who like keyboard shortcuts.

    If you hover over the Post Quick Reply button it will show you Alt + S.
    If you hover over the Go Advanced button it will show you Alt + X.

    It kind of crashed the firefox tab the first time, trying again... here is what's going on:
    Ok, so there goes your fix, works perfectly and now I have a new useful keyboard shortcut to add to my list :)

    You aren't 'testing' Didou.... you are simply just increasing your postcount.


    HRMMM just a quick check.....it doesn't appear to work in Opera.
