From the installation instructions:

HACK NAME : Preview Post

DESCRIPTION : This hack allows users to preview their posts. The previews are displayed above the input box, and appear exactly as they would in an actual post, including all UBB Code™ formatting.

AUTHOR : Eddie Holman (Leshrac) - [email protected]
VERSION : 1.01

If you feel you have contributed but not been given credit please email me - [email protected]

REQUIREMENTS : A full version of the UBB, version 6.0 or later.

DOWNLOAD URL : http://www.magictraders.com/ubb/preview_post.txt


Note that this version does not use a JavaScript pop-up, as it's something I'm not a big fan of. I hear another version of this hack with that feature is in the works, however.

If you find any bugs that aren't a result of user error, please let me know. This has worked flawlessly for me so far.

Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past me I will turn to see fear's path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

A FEW THINGS:

1. I can preview NEW TOPICS but when I EDIT, it doesn't work.

2. When I add Smilies/Graemlins and preview, they show up as broken images (/cgi-bin/ubb6/biggrin.gif - should be /ubb6/biggrin.gif)

3. I have to turn flood check OFF in order to use preview or else I get the flood check warnings or I have to lower the flood check time which defats the purpose of using flood check.

All above mentioned bugs have been fixed. Please refer to the installation instructions and reapply the code changes to ubb_new_topic.cgi, ubb_new_reply.cgi, ubb_edit_post.cgi, and public_edit_post.pl.

Jedi Thrawn and Compboy: your posts are incredibly unhelpful. In the future, please do not waste your time and that of others if you have nothing useful to contribute.

Leshrac,

Excellent work on the hack. One suggestion for the install documentation ...

When editing the vars_wordlets.cgi file, if I put the preview wordlet is added at the end as it is indicated in your documentation, it will cause an error error. If you suggest to people to check the line above ends in a comma (and if not add one at the end), this might eliminate some problems.

Nevertheless great hack and I *love* the no Javascript required part. smile

Well, to be fair, I just say to add it to your wordlets file, not put it at the end. I'm assuming people should at least be able to exercise a small degree of common sense and put it in the logical place. :rolleyes:

Thank you for the hack. It's working without any problems on my board. A general question--how many places would I need to change the coding in order to make the add reply and now the preview gray boxes converted into gif's?

Works 99%. But the hack doesn't incorporate the UBB codebuttons hack (yet) I would like to see this too (eg glow text).

Keep up the good work.. cool

It works perfectly for a New Topic but when I press Add Reply to that same post and enter some text and select Preview I get nothing. It hangs there showing no activity on the browser's progress bar.

Here's where I'm testing the Reply Preview.

Suggestions please.

HI have a question or two-you know how Newbe's are eek. I am using 6.02 & wonder if I upgrade in the future will I have to reapply the Hack to each upgrade?

edit 3:35pm looks like I found my screw upPlease disregard thanks smile
having troubles-hack seemed to work at 1st. but now when I reply & hit preview I get an empty mess with another post below from member #0(admin account? & date posted is 1920 TEST POST
with the member # in the body of the post. I set up a test post account user: reg test, pass: abc123. Could some one look at this?
The only step of the hack I am unsure about is the last step where you add "preview_post => "Preview" to the vars_wordlets.cgi. I added it in the middle as the directions did not specify a place & I am not a scripting wizard.
FYI 6.03 on unix server gradient hack is only other 1 installed

BTW, I installed this today, and it worked great - first time!

I installed it first, and then realized I did it on my test board, which was still at 6.02, and then I had to do it again for 6.03. Worked great both times! smile

frown I'm having some problems Leshrac..

You see... I installed it twice and the same thing happens everytime... whenever I press preview it posts the post or topic or edits or whatever....

Any reasons for why this may be happening?
I have 6.02 with the following hacks:

The Dev Kit(var_wordlets_mods.cgi)
No Double Posts

The only one of those that I think can possibly conflict with your hack is the Double Post... but why would it? Please help as soon as possible...
