Is there a way to preview a post?

Recommended Posts

In older versions of this forum, when starting a new thread, I would often used the “Preview” option before submitting the post. I don’t see that option in the current version of the forum. Can this feature be reinstated?

not related, but another question

I can't figure out how to check a post now and go to the newest post first.  When I click on a title, I go to the first post in the thread.  I want to be able to go to the newest so that I don't have to scroll all the way down through posts that I have already read

That's one of your forum settings. Go to your settings are you should be able to find a check box relating to that.

To get to the first unread post, there’s a little circle or star in front of the post title (circled in green in the screenshot below). Click on the circle or star, and it should take you to the first unread post. (If it’s a star, then it’s a post you’ve started or replied to. Otherwise, it’s a circle.)

Nicely done, @wilburpan.  I was about to post just that tip.  It also looks as if you are using the "Unread Content" link at the top and bottom of each page to look at content you haven't seen.

Caution!  If you fat finger the DOT in front of unread content and accidentally hit the name of the person who started the thread you want to read, you'll be taken to that person's page that lists everything about them.  I read this sight mainly on an iPad and end up on folks pages all the time.

Same here, CC. I have to make sure I tap well above the circle/star or I end up on someones profile page.

I don't see a setting, is that maybe a Tapatalk thing?
