What exactly happens when you click on the Preview button? Do you get an error? Thrown back to the main forum page?

Be specific honey so MH can indentify the problem

Exactly what I said: it does nothing. It looks like it's being clicked when I click on it (kwim?).....and that's all. No error message. No re-direction. No swirly *I'm thinking* circle. What I've typed is still there (thank goodness!).

Just.Nothing.

Is there an edit button at the bottom of the box after you click on it?

Testing out the bold.

Hmmm

When I click preview, is it supposed to show me how it will look after posted? Cuz it looks the same with the brackets and not in bold.

The font gets a little larger...

Sit tight

I'm not worried. Just trying to help out so MH can fix it.

update: I don't know if I tried it before, but the smiley faces show up in the preview. However, as of this time right now - the quote and bold don't preview for me.

ETA: I thought I would try to post an image as I never can do it. I thought the image button might help me. It didn't.

The preview has been updated to display the bold, italic and quotes. The text should now also stay contained within the preview box.

Mine doesn't work either.

But then again, I have cookie issues or other technological snafus with S.I. here at work.

I'm sure it will work at home.

Yay! I like the new image button.

I tried to change my name through the Platinum feature but when I pushed the button but it didn't take. It didn't register that I'd clicked anything. The page just stayed the same.

I just wanted to bring that to someone's attention ( hint hint) incase I'm not the only one

Works for me!

Please try it again and let me know if you still have a problem.

Nope.

Nuttin' happened.

Again, I'm pretty sure it's on my end.

Sigh.

Oh MH and DS.........I just posted a minute ago and tried the preview button. Still doesn't seem to *do* anything.
What *should* happen when I click that button?

It's not a big deal because I usually scan over my message before I post it anyway. At this point, I'm just curious......

If your post is just plain text - nothing using the bold, italics, quote, image, emoticons... - it will look like nothing happened when you preview.

Just to further explain -

If I do nothing *special* - no bold, italic, smileys, etc...

When I hit the PREVIEW button the text box shrinks to the size of the post I have written and and EDIT box appears. I click on that and I can edit my text.

If I bold or italic or

quote
something, in the text box it appears with the [command]. When I preview, it all shows up exactly as it will when I post.

So gonna, you should see *something* happen no matter what you have typed when you hit preview.

hello


Thanks for the explanation. It's not working that way for me, though. The only thing that happens is that while I'm typing, the outline of the box is yellow. When I hit the preview button it turns a different color -- kinda a periwinkle (bluish silver) -- but the message inside the box looks exactly the same as when I typed it originally.

yellow? When I'm typing in this box, the outline is a light blue color. When my mouse is elsewhere, the outline turns grey. It's also grey when I preview. I don't know if that means anything or not.

What browser are you using?
