Disabling shortcuts Edit

How do you disable these keyboard shortcuts? Irilyth (talk) 00:16, February 8, 2016 (UTC)

It's not currently possible, but it's something we're open to looking into if it's desired. Could you send in your request to Special:Contact/feedback, letting us know why you'd like to disable them? Kirkburn  talk  contr  @Wikia  13:05, February 8, 2016 (UTC)
Done! Thanks. (In case anyone reading here is curious: My main use case is when I'm using find-in-page to search only for links (by just typing characters), when I get to an "e" suddenly the page flips into edit mode.) Irilyth (talk) 13:10, February 8, 2016 (UTC)
To disable these shortcuts, simply add *globalshortcuts_js to your adblocker. -452 17:32, March 31, 2016 (UTC)
I don't use an ad blocker, but something similar might work. I suspect NoScript could do it, but haven't figured out how yet -- if I do, I'll update here. Irilyth (talk) 17:41, March 31, 2016 (UTC)
As a quick followup on this topic - we are planning on adding a preference in a future update. No ETA to provide right now, though. Kirkburn  talk  contr  @Wikia  17:35, March 31, 2016 (UTC)

Shortcuts customization? Edit

I like this feature, but could you guys make it so admins of a wiki can customize the shortcut keys? Or, better yet, make it so each user can set their own shortcut keys as they desire (that would carry over on any wiki they visit)? CaptFredricks talk contr 15:47, March 6, 2016 (UTC)

That's an idea a few people have brought up since launch - it's something we're going to discuss, but we can't make any promises around it. Kirkburn  talk  contr  @Wikia  14:23, March 8, 2016 (UTC)
