#2407 new enhancement

Post Preview Feature

Many of my forum members ask for a preview feature.
Especially if the members are using BBcodes in their Posts like <b> <em> <quote> <code> and so on. Although you can edit, but with a preview others can not see the faulty, unfinished post.
A post preview as a basic feature in bbPress would be great.

Maybe we take a look at reintroducing the visual editor in bbPress now that TinyMCE 4 is now in WordPress core. See #WP24067

Just checking the status of this ticket. I can see its priority is high. However, I'm not sure if this feature is going to be applied to bbPress and then added to the support forums.

It will be helpful for users to preview their messages before submitting them. The preview feature will probably reduce the revisions(edits) of the submitted messages.
