Post Preview

    For the last couple years, I’ve been using the bbP Live Preview plugin in conjunction with the bbPress Enable TinyMCE Visual Tab plugin for the forums located at http://www.nationalbraille.org/forums

    In the post editor, users can type, then highlight their text and apply a braille font using a button in the Visual Editor options. Then, hitting “Preview” would allow a post preview box to appear below the editor that showed how the post would look before submitting.

    Not everyone has been successful using it, but it always worked great for me up until now. I can’t get the function to work for me anymore. I’ve checked Javascript in my test browsers and everything is enabled. Any thoughts on what could be causing this function to break?

    ok, I’ve just loaded it to my site, but see nothing different – is there any set-up or what should I see differently on a topic/reply form?

    Hi Robin.

    I don’t believe there’s any setup involved. I’m not a developer and didn’t install it on our site. I’m just trying to figure out why it stopped working.

    The functionality of the plugin should allow someone to hit the “preview” button, and below the text editor, a preview window of what the post will look like when it’s published appears. It used to work great, but now, the pop-up no longer appears.

    I just came here hoping that someone else who used this plugin on their bbPress forum had a solution.

    ok, I’ve just had a play, and for me in firefox, chrome, edge, and IE, as you type a preview box appears below the content. There is no ‘preview’ button to hit.

    Is it different for you ?

    Yes. Our set up has a “Preview” button above the editor. In the past, after typing in the editor, you’d hit the preview button and then get a preview window below.

    I just tried typing without hitting the preview, and then also with using the button. Neither one works.

    looks like either the version I see is different, or someone has ‘improved’ yours.

    FWIW, I also have https://github.com/r-a-y/bbp-live-preview running on a site and just like @robin-w, I never saw that ‘preview’ button.
