After seeing the annoucement, Announcement: Keyboard shortcuts are now integrated into the site, I just had to enable keyboard shortcuts. I ran into the following problem, which is not one of those mentioned in New keyboard shortcut integration problems?

On pages displaying lists of questions, the O shortcut is described as "order questions by", but it actually appears to be a way to switch between the different tabs on that page. Usually those are synonymous, but not so when browsing questions by tag. E.g., when browsing questions tagged with Jena, the leftmost tab is "info", which is not a question ordering:

we can select the tag info tag from the list of tagged questions

That said, pressing O, then I, does bring us to the info tab, but once we're there, we can't be back to the other tabs. O isn't enabled on the tag info page (there's nothing to order, I suppose), but there aren't any shortcuts to get to the other tabs, either:

but we can't get to the question tabs from a tag info tab


I agree that it's a bit weird to have "info" appear as a "sort order", but I don't have a good idea to change this at the moment. I have however fixed the main bug in your report; the O shortcut will work on the tag info page from the next build on.

  • Yes, "info" as a sort order didn't make a lot of sense, but the real problem was not being able to get back from it. If the UI is actually about those tabs rather than sort order, an easy fix would be to change the text for O to something like "Open tab". – Joshua Taylor Aug 25 '14 at 12:38
  • Will this fix require some time to propagate? I don't see it on Stack Overflow yet... – Joshua Taylor Aug 25 '14 at 12:39
  • My answer says "from the next build on"; see meta.stackexchange.com/questions/166787/… for some details. – balpha Aug 25 '14 at 12:41
  • D'oh! Sorry, I read much too quickly. Thanks for the quick fix! – Joshua Taylor Aug 25 '14 at 12:44
