    On the forums, you can use the ALT+S shortcut to submit a message, can this be implemented in the frontpage as well? I am quite used to this shortcut. Thanks :D

    No, because you have to move your arm from the keyboard to your mouse, move it over to the button and click it. I am used to ALT+S, so it's annoying when it's not working :p

    I don't need to move my arm from the keyboard, I type with my right fingers and click with my left index finger.

    Just don't understand why you have to hit ALT+S!

    Because the little voices in my head tell me to :p I type with both sets of fingers, so when I am done typing I have to move my right arm 5 inches to the mouse, grab it, move it into position and move my indexfinger down to click.

    It's not only the voices in my head, it's also my invisible friends that tell me what to do :(

    Or in this case (Ekko theme):
    <input type="image" src="themes/ekko/submit.gif" accesskey="s">

    Cool, I just found out while making a test form to test this out that if you click on an image loaded with <input type="image">, you get the X and Y coords of where you clicked. This is what I always wanted, cool :D

    Doesn't work, there's already an accesskey on the "Standard mode" option. If that was changed to a different letter, it should work ok.

    Yeah, when posting a comment there's an option for standard or enhanced.

    Basically when clicking bold, link, italic etc, one gives the input box, the other dumps an open tag into the text area.

    I see you added it already ("s" accesskey on the submit button). Thanks for that :)
