    Alt+6 = go to faq
    Alt+7 = open community menu
    Alt+8 = go to contact us
    Alt+9 = go to advanced search
    Alt+s = save settings/submit

    On forum pages (lists of threads):
    Alt+n = create a new thread

    On thread pages (lists of posts):
    Alt+n = takes you to quick reply

    message editor window shortcuts:
    Ctrl+b = bold
    Ctrl+i = italics
    Ctrl+L = insert link
    Ctrl+u = underline

    Is there a shortcut for "create new post"? That would save having to scroll to the bottom of the page every time to post a new HIT in the Daily HITs thread.
    Eschew obfuscation, espouse elucidation. Batch HITs for newbs. 1000 req'd. 5000 req'd.

    Because I adore you, and I'm so fancy, done! Alt-N is "Post New Thread".
    It's all good.

    Aww thanks, I appreciate your effort. BUT, what I really want is "Create new post" (within an existing thread). Can that be done?

    Alt-N on the thread page takes you to "Quick Post", if you have that enabled, or "Create New Post" if you don't.
    It's all good.

    Note that not all of the shortcuts work in all of the forum skins, but most should.
    It's all good.
