    Suggestion [Logged] Why is there no preview?

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by Aaron DC, Jul 8, 2015.

    Alliteratively: porquoi pas de preview?

    There is a preview function, but you have to jump through a couple of hoops to access it. This is unusual in my experience with online forums, and doubly so given this is a writing forum.

    Just curious what the design decision was that lead to this hiding of the preview function? And a request to add it back to the basic new post functions.

    Cheers

    Oddly enough, there's no preview because that's how Xenforo is designed. It wasn't a design decision on our end.

    I'll add a preview button sometime over the next few days.

    Fixed the CSS image issue.

    Ah really. I thought it curious that there's a preview button for a new thread, but not the replies.

    Thanks!
