    Is it possible to preview posts before posting

    I'm finding this a particularly user friendly board in comparison to others I've known.

    However, I've not seen an obvious way to preview a post before posting it. I would personally find that useful.

    Have I missed something?

    When you click "reply to thread" it opens up a Quick Reply text entry box.

    Look below that box, in lower right corner -- there's a "Go Advanced" button.

    Clicking this brings up a richer reply screen, with Preview box at the top and "Preview Post" button below the text entry field.

    Hope this helps!

    A another helpful hint:

    If you are replying with text only the box you type in will show your post in WYSIWYG (or What You See Is What You Get) format.

    If you are wising to alter the text font or size this should also show exactly has it will be posted.

    However if you wish to see the code of your text you can click in the upper left corner of the Quick Reply box where you see the a/A box. This will show your post as the computer sees it. Unclicking this will return you to WYSIWYG mode.

    This feature is very helpful if you change text fonts within a post. i.e If you have part of you post in regular to italic to bold.
