I might be missing something. Is there a way to preview posts before posting?
When typing in the New Topic popup, the preview is on the righthand side. If you don’t see it, try clicking Show Preview.
OK. Got it and it is very good - like a live Markdown preview. Not immediately obvious though (to me at least!).
I really like the ease of embedding on these forums. Preview post is a great utility but from my own personal experience with other forums where previewing a post for a Youtube, Hearthis, ect was critical just to make sure it didn’t display something linkdead.
on Desktop browsers, it’s automatic
Yup! Works even better than Facebook methinks; it’s just a pleasure to use.
This is the format that Facebook wishes it could be.
