      The forum S/W “out of the box” and “into StearnVault” doesn’t provide previews for post creation or editing. Here’s hoping there is an easy or low cost workaround, e.g a button invoking a form overlay with the content.

        Done some looking and it looks like bbPress has that feature after all, just not from the editor in the forum view. The preview feature is in the admin center under the topics area, along with a more advanced editor. I didn’t see a plugin or setting to bring these features to the main area here, though, but there may be a tweak mentioned in the docs. Will look!

          It’s not a theme problem (switched to a different theme and no luck) and the bbPress docs aren’t much help. They say that the advanced post editor should be in both the dashboard and the forums but they may have been written for an older version of WordPress :/

            Thanks for the update. Certainly worth raising at WP then.

              Turns out it is high on their priority list, no milestone yet.
              There is this, which requires Javascript which isn’t enabled at this time.

                Hopefully they’ll get it worked on soon! There is an official plugin to add the previous post editor back into WordPress, maybe that will be helpful?

                  Thanks! Have a link to it? Might come in handy if we decide to use it- right now the chief reservation being that it might put something else off kilter – if for no other reason than some unintended consequence of our dear old friend, Murphy, and his Law. 😛

                    Here you go!

                    There’s also this one that works in tandem with it 🙂

                    Definitely. Don’t want to break things unless we need to! 😛
