    Hello all
    So far things on this new forum have been working well for me.
    However “and I think someone mentioned it somewhere else here”

    1: Is there a way to preview a post before it is submitted ?

    2: It would be nice if on user login there was a “view your posts” and “view posts since last visit”

    With that said these are merely suggestions !

    Who knows maybe there is a way and I am not sure how to do it ! LOL ! 🙂

    You can go to Forums > Views > Latest Topics and there you will see posts you still not read in orange.

    That’s not exactly a “view posts since last visit” functionnality but that seems the closest.

    Nope.We spent weeks dialing this place in before opening it. Better minds with more experience than I , with setting up forums were involved also.

    @roky : a plugin like this one may not be the solution? I don’t know how a wordpress forum works so it is maybe a stupid suggestion…

    Wordpress likes to charge money to use their plugins. Our small teams money war chest already purchased what can be afforded. Anti in particular is donating money to run this forum.

    Not a stupid question. Just not affordable.

    OK. I replied before reading your link. My bad. Before installing that plugin. Another consideration may be compatibility with our forum.

    Sorry but that is above my pay grade < PS. I work for free. So that aint saying much > on whether it fits in with our version of word press.

    I installed the plugin but it gave an error on installation. I then removed it.

    My understanding is there is no “preview post” option for the current forum. If this is true I think I have a work around. If admins could create a new header similar to “News”, “New Users”, “Adminstration”, etc. and instead call it “Drafts” or “Preview Posts”. You could then post to “Drafts”, look at the post and then make your corrections using the “edit” option. When the post looks good you can then move the post to the appropriate header using the “edit” option again. I tested being able to move posts from one header to another and it works. So would be possible to do this?

    I think you you would be just as well off writing it in an editor, checking it, copy it into a reply, then posting.
