Description Lejonel 2009-08-08 06:55:11 UTC
All the standard namespaces have a default access key ('C' 'T' in most cases) defined by the message MediaWiki:Accesskey-ca-nstab-<canonical ns name>. But custom namespaces only have accesskey 'T' for their talkspaces. I think 'C' should be default accesskey also for custom namespaces. ('C' could also be used for Project namespace, which currently has accesskey 'A' unlike all other default namespaces.)
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2009-08-10 17:39:43 UTC
I'm kind of lost... what exactly is it that needs an access key? The subject page tab? This should be constant with no variation across namespaces.

Or something else? 
Comment 2 Lejonel 2009-08-11 16:51:47 UTC
Yes, I am talking about access keys for the page tabs. Normally 'C' is for the subject page tab , and 'T' for the talk page tab. But in custom namespaces (for example [[Wikisource:Author:A. A. Milne]]) only the talk page tab has an access key. Alt-Shift-T (or some similar combination, depending on browser) takes you to the talk page, but Alt-Shift-C does nothing. This can be fixed by editing [[Wikisource:MediaWiki:Accesskey-ca-nstab-author]]. I want Alt-Shift-C to work for pages in custom namespaces too.
Comment 3 Lejonel 2009-08-11 17:02:48 UTC
More exactly: I want it to work in all custom namespaces by default without having to edit MediaWiki messages.

And it would be great if the project namespace tab had the sames access key ('C') as all other namespaces. Currently MediaWiki:Accesskey-ca-nstab-project is 'A' by default.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2009-08-13 18:17:32 UTC
Yeah, that's a little funky... The subpage page tab should have the accesskey consistently regardless of which namespace it happens to be. Nimish & Trevor can you take a peek in this and confirm we can have it working in both MonoBook and Vector? Thanks!
