vb 4.x version here

This hack adds some keyboard shortcuts for accelerated navigation. Very convenient, when you browse forum without mouse (notebook with touchpad and so on).

Current shortcuts:
  • Ctrl + Left - previous page (current page - 1)
  • Ctrl + Right - next page (current page + 1)
  • Ctrl + Up - 1 level up.
  • (!) Ctrl + Down - Go to next unread thread in current forum (only for registered forum members)
Demo: (without CTRL+DOWN for guests)

(!) "Next Unread" is taken from end (the most old unread thread). Reason is simple - that makes less returns, since top threads are updated very often.

PS. As you can see from screenshot, only Ctrl + Left/Right have visual helpers. If someone have good idea how to show, that Ctrl+ Up/Down are working too - feel free to share.

This mod is developped here: . Patches are welcome.


- Redirects for moved threads caused error for CTRL+Down

- added lock when cursor focus is in edit area
- removed CTRL+HOME shortcut (uncomment in template, if really need it)

- added Ctrl+Down

0.2, 0.3
- Small JS fixes
- Nice helpers in pagebar (see screenshot)

- First Public Release

Great mod!

The latest version introduces a conflict with cyb Chatbox. The "Message..." prompt will not disappear as it should when activating the input box.

If anybody need work it with vb3.6, just update template 'pagenav'.
This hack need rel="next" and rel="prev" like in modern vb versions.
