forum - no 'new topic preview' or edit source view is annoying

Recommended Posts

no new topic preview or edit source view [e.g bbcode view] is annoying... [used to have on the old forum...]

esp if you trying to say use *spoiler* tags or other such things...

Is this something that just changed recently?

No, it is not particularly recent, though we did at one time have the ability to view source. It was handy for breaking up quotes to reply to specific parts.

I added "Spoiler" as a button, and according to the settings in the admin console you should all have both a preview and a code editor (the later only lets you insert code, not view the code for what you have already added with the wysiwyg editor). Here's what I see:

1) code insert button
2) newly added spoiler section button
3) preview button

Can you confirm you all have the same buttons I do from a desktop (not mobile) browser?

Yea, can see. Better than nothing, but the code insert isn't the same as the old level of bbcode preview for wholepost :)

the spoiler is now better to 'work with' now - before i was using manual [ spoiler ] tags and it could quickly become uneditable basically after it was posted...

anyhoo - thanks esp for post preview - that was the most annoying tbh when doing a new complicated thread! :)

Yeah, I don't know why Invision would think this is an improvement. But the full bbcode preview seems to be completely gone as an option. Sorry about that.
