Shortcuts for individual categories don't seem to work

+5
−0

After discovering keyboard shortcuts, I noticed a problem:

The keyboard shortcuts for going to individual categories (like g c 1) don't do anything for me.

Note that the shortcut for the category page (g c c) works fine, and so do the shortcuts for the category specific tags (like g t 1), so it's not specifically the number keys not working.

As an aside, it would be nice if the page for enable/disable keyboard tools mentioned that, unlike all other profile settings, this setting is per community (so that enabling it on meta doesn't also enable it e.g. on writing).

Reproduced on Edge Chromium on Windows 10 Moshi‭ 2 months ago

Could you check if this is still happening for you? Those shortcuts work for me in Chrome now, but I don't know what you were using and I haven't gotten to a Windows machine yet to test in Edge. Also, we've made the setting global and moved it into a new "preferences" section on the profile page. Monica Cellio‭ 19 days ago

@MonicaCellio I think I added a fix for that in the change with the site switcher. So I suppose this should now be status-completed. luap42‭ 18 days ago

@MonicaCellio: It now works. Note that I'm not on Windows either, though (I'm mainly using Waterfox on Linux). @luap42: thank you. (Do multiple attributions in one comment work?) celtschk‭ 18 days ago

Re multiple pings in a comment, don't know. I got pinged; we'll have to wait to see if luap42 did too. Monica Cellio‭ 18 days ago

We've added a "preferences" tab to the user profile. There are global (network-wide) and per-community preferences. We've made keyboard shortcuts a global preference.

We don't yet have "global, but with local overrides"; a preference is either global or has to be set on each individual community. When we have a proper network profile we should be able to improve on that.
