Feature request: Keyboard shortcuts
It would be great if we could do things we do often via keyboard shortcuts.
- Cmd+Enter: Post question.
- C: Compose new question
- R: Reply
- E: Archive (mark closed for example)
- J/K: Next/previous (between threads or between posts in pages)
- N: View notifications
It would be great if it took inspiration from the same shortcuts that are used in Gmail and Intercom.

Good idea. Nice with shortcuts. Personally I use Vim keybindings in all editors, e.g. VSCode. (Gmail's J/K is the same as in Vim.)
Related thread at HackerNews: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=22741386 — summary: It's about a way to quickly find all ancestor posts, so that, in large discussions, one won't need to scroll up "manually" to find all ancestors (the parent reply, grandparent, grand-garnd-... ).
Pcould be a shortcut for popping up a dialog and showing all parent posts, in long discussions? Or jumping to the parent post
Yea, good idea!
Something that I use all the time in Intercom now is the ability to "snooze" a conversation.
Often I could need something similar in TY where I will see a post from a user, but I don't immediately have time to answer their question.
However - I don't wanna risk not answering them in the future.
In Intercom I can choose to manually "close" or "snooze" a conversation. Perhaps something similar could be implemented for the forum - although I know it has to work differently on a forum.
But would be great for time management, so that it's easier to delay less important threads and focus on more time sensitive ones. Right now I have to reply to everything I see when I see it, because otherwise I risk forgetting them.
Oooops - and the reason I posted that in this thread is that I use "z" in Intercom for snoozing :)

Ok so shortcuts will be included in the upcoming version (already implemented).
gr= Go to the topics list, view Recent topics,
gaa= Go to Admin Area, and
cnh= Change Notifications to Hushed notification level.
If one clicks Shift (and no other key), a list of all shortcuts pops up.
There'll be a feature flag now initially, so can be enabled/disabled site wide. Maybe should be a per user feature flag too, hmm
- Progresswith doing this idea
