Pinned topic Can we preview a post before forum submission?

‏2012-03-21T15:48:28Z |
Folks,
Is there a way to preview a forum post before a submission is made? I can't seem to find a way to do this?

    Hi Neil,
    It depends on your browser. On Firefox and IE, when you Reply there's a Preview tab behind the Plain Text tab in the Message editor. The se tabs do not appear in Chrome.

      Thanks for the awesome fast response. Sure enough, I am using Chrome. Looking at this browser stats site:

      http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp

      I see that as of now:

      ie: 19.5%
      ff: 36.6%
      Chrome: 36.3%

      And looking at the trend, it looks like a good bet that Chrome will surpass the others in popularity this month. I am curious, if Chrome support will be enabled and am also curious what it may be about chrome that prevents full function? I had thought Dojo and other toolkits had smoothed out all the browser inconsistencies?

        Hi Neil,
        I don't know why the tab doesn't appear in Chrome, maybe someone from dWorks can answer that. Since Chrome releases come out fast and furious, it's hard to keep up. Don't think the forum software is based on Dojo, think it's Java (and not developed by IBM)..but agree that it should work across browsers.
