Quick keyboard shortcuts on Wikia

Keyboard shortcuts allow you to navigate around your community by using simple keyboard shortcuts. These shortcuts do not require complex combinations - many are as simple as a single keypress!

Using shortcuts

Shortcuts-Search

Actions explorer

By typing ' ? ' or clicking the 'Shortcuts' option in the user toolbar, a dialog will pop up listing various available shortcuts. These shortcuts do not require use of access keys. For example, it tells you that '/' (a forward slash) will move your cursor to the search box.

An actions explorer, accessed by pressing ' . ' (a period/full stop), enables access to even more pages. You can use this to discover more shortcuts or as a method of quick access by simply clicking the search result.

For example, typing 'Ins' will narrow the list to 'Insights', which shows both the keyboard shortcut (press 'g' then 's') and provides a clickable result that will take you straight to Insights.

Notes

These shortcuts are not active when your cursor is in an edit area, so they won't interfere with article editing.
