Preview Message

A new feature was added to the web interface of Conversant's conversations: Each message edit screen now has a Preview Msg button that lets you see the rendered message, without posting it to the Conversation. In other words, you can edit a message and check how it will look as many times as you want, before making it public.

How To Use It

That's quite easy: When you create or edit a message, click on Preview Msg instead of Submit Changes. Your browser will then open a new window that will show you this message, rendered in the discussion group.

But your changes to the message won't be visible to the world until you click on Submit Changes. So when you're done, don't forget to click on this button.

Limitations

When you preview a message, the changes you've done to this message are stored in a temporary location related to this session. If you quit your web browser (or if it crashes) before you saved your changes by clicking on the Submit Changes button, these changes will be lost.

When using the preview, you may add attachments to the message with the Enclosures form, but the url of the attached items will be temporary. So you cannot see (nor make a link to) the attachments. However, they'll be saved too when you'll click on Submit Changes, and then, you'll be able to see them (and to link to them).

Requirements

Your web browser must support Javascript and this function must be enabled in its preferences.
