Display access keys[edit]

The following entry in your user CSS file (e.g., User:Example/vector.css) will display access keys before links that have them.

This does not work in Internet Explorer versions lower than 8.0, since they don't support the :before CSS selector.

a[accesskey]:before {
    content: " " attr(accesskey) " ";
    text-transform: uppercase;
    white-space: pre;
    border: thin solid;
    font-family: sans-serif;
    text-decoration: underline overline;
    margin-right: 0.5ex;
}

Changing and disabling access keys[edit]

Disabling access keys in general[edit]

Disabling individual acess keys[edit]

To disable or modify these access keys, add the code near the bottom of your own skin file (e.g., User:Example/vector.js). Access keys are case-sensitive.

Some common problematic access keys include:

d (delete page):

 /* disable access keys/keyboard shortcuts */
ta['ca-delete'] = new Array(,"Delete this page"); /*delete*/

e (edit page):

 /* disable access keys/keyboard shortcuts */
 ta['ca-edit'] = new Array('','Edit this page');

f ("find"/go to search box):

 /* disable access keys/keyboard shortcuts */
 ta['search'] = new Array('','Search this wiki');
