Does anyone have knowledge of how to disable keyboard short cuts for anonymous users only?
I have a space that is open for public access (anonymous users can view) and I would like to disable keyboard short cuts either for this space - or for anonymous users in general.
In the public space a lot of standard page features are hidden via css, so I would like to make sure features are not available via keyboard short cuts. Stuff like comment field or pressing "t" to watch files attached to a page, just to mention a few.
Pleased to hear any feedback :-)
Disabling functions by hiding them is not the right way to approach this, as a user can always waltz around them. You should be using permissions to control what people can do.
There's no function for changing the behaviour of keyboard shortcuts, on a user by user basis.
Thanks for the feedback. I agree with you that hidding a function will not disable the function.
However, for anonymous access the only permission granted is "Can use Confluence" (global permission) and "View" the particular space in question. Removing any of these will lock out anonymous users, which is not what I am looking for.
I was hoping for a way to disable keyboard shortcuts for "anonymous access" to Confluence - not on user basis. Anonymous access requires no user profile..
Well - most likely it cannot be done.
Would be nice though... :-)
Sure - no harm can be done, I guess.
It is a matter of creating a uniform experience for anonymous users.
Suppose an anonymous user presses "t" for some reason: he/she will be redirected to see the attachments of the page in question. This will also display the sidebar which I like to keep hidden (for anonymous users I prefer to place navigation links on pages as needed). + the tools menu will be displayed.
Pressing "k" or "l" will open the Link dialog..
Disabling the short cuts on either space level or for anonymous access would block these options - and the person viewing the page will not be prompted with unnecessary functions.
