Superceded -- this skin is obsolete, since accesskey capabilities are built into the default skin.
This skin is identical to the PmWiki skin except that it defines a variety of accesskey attributes that provide keyboard shortcuts to common PmWiki actions. The currently defined shortcuts:
ALT+e: Edit page ALT+h: Page history
From the "Edit Page" screen:
ALT+s: Save page ALT+p: Preview page
You can try these shortcuts on this page. Or, you can activate these keys permanently in your browser for all pages on pmwiki.org. If you later decide that you want to de-activate these keys, you can revert to the standard pmwiki.org skin.
The skin is available for download at Attach:pmwiki-ak.zip. Simply unpack the skin into the pub/skins/pmwiki-ak/ directory, and add the following line to your config.php:
I was confused before, and still seem to be confused now by the difference between this skin description and the invocation of the skin. Am I correct in assuming that the "setskin" links above are simply convenient ways to demonstrate the skin? Does the SkinChange script need to be installed to use "setskin"?
These accesskeys will replace the browser accesskeys using the same letters. For example with Firefox browser, Alt+e will replace the Edit accesskey of the main menu. With IE (surprise !) you need to press the Enter key after, for example Alt+e+Enter noe

This seems to be something that would be good to either enable or disable on a pmwiki (rather than on a per-skin) basis.
