    Has ANYONE ever noticed this feature? It's pretty neat. When you're making a post, just click the + sign next to "Live Preview" and a space will show up. A live preview of what you're posting is what you get. Type in some stuff, wait a second, and there it is. Are you:
    • Having problems with quote tag formatting?
    • Not seeing your images show up?
    • Not sure if the color you chose is readable?
    Apparently you don't have to push the Preview button over and over trying to get it right. ;D

    There's also "More Smilies" on the left of the posting box that some people might not be aware of.

    Sorry, I was having way too much fun with this. [smiley=happy.gif]

    I see the option with IE - I don't know about other browsers.  After hitting the reply button, look in the upper left-hand corner, under the blue band that says Post Reply.  You should see the words Live Preview after a small square with a + sign in it.  Click the + sign and the Live Preview pops up at the top of the page where you will see your post as you type.  There is a short delay.

    FWIW, I just logged on with Mozilla Foxfire and can also see the Live Preview option.  ;)
