What does it do?

- Allows you to see the preview without leaving the page! via AJAX!
- See Demo.gif



- The hack no longer uses the vbulletin "Preview Post" button, instead its got its own button at the top, this
gives users the option of doing a ajax quick preview or the default vbulletin preview.
- Added "updating" text while the preview is being processed.



- Fixed a few bugs
- No more edits required



- Fixed image issue
- Added AME - Auto Media Embedding preview



- Phrase added
- Cached templates


- First Release

interesting, the hack places nothing on the arcade pages, the only time the hack runs is during New Reply/thread and PM. Have you enabled/disabled to hack to test it, any error messages?

Interesting Thread!!

One Bug!!

This Hack Causes That When You Edit a Message and Try To Change The "Include Signature" Option, That Option Isn't Updated, so When You Have That Option Disabled and Try To Enable It, This Hacks Causes That Option Not To Be Updated, Even For Administrators!!

Perhaps Interferes With Other Options, But I Haven't Tested It Further and Decided to Disable It, for it Not To Interfere With The "Include Signature" Option in Posts and Threads!!

My Best Regards!! I Hope This Bug Could Be Fixed!!

How can I remove the quick preview button and make it the normal Preview Post button ? I don't want two preview post buttons lol.

inciarco; thanks I will look into that.

lordtopcat; that's how it originally functioned but then users were forced to use it, perhaps the button can be placed next to the preview button.

is there a way to get rid of this on the pm page? i'm running into the error that when using this preview that it previews it and then reloads the page as if using the default vb preview button, all other areas that i've tested it on work just fine though.

I love the idea of this hack, but i thought the whole idea of a preview is to pass the bb code and other code to show you exactly what it will look like. However in your example it just copies exactly what is in the text box and doesnt pass the bb code, in this case making the bold text bold.

Am i missing something?

the above example was animated which showed that it worked with all vb bbcodes but for some reason its been changed to a static it works exactly like the normal preview but via AJAX.

nice hack...
Is it possible to have it auto-update the preview, when you type something in the reply box?

Marked as uninstalled since I experienced some trouble within my PM section. User wasn`t able to click anymore inside the Textbox (WYSIWYG) from the Editor. IE and Standardeditor even in FF worked fine.

Can`t say if it`s in trouble with some other hacks & addons or FF itself but I don`t have much time for debuggin. Sad... I used it a long time.

Anyway a great hack!
