    Is it possible to view the new post prior to ‘submit’ it live? is there a plugin or a code to add to it? Thanks.

    ? Is this a BuddyPress related question, if so you’ll need to be clearer on what you want to do.

    Ok. I use bbPress and BuddyPress for my forum site and like to see if I can let user view their newly created topic post prior to actually submit the post to go live. Should I post this question here or at bbPress?

    It is not a BuddyPress related question, but here it goes. At CSS-Tricks, Chris Coyer is using this plugin (http://wordpress.org/plugins/live-comment-preview/) to allow the user to preview their answer in the bbPress.

    It is not the topic, but I think you can make it work.

    Thanks Renato. Strange though, I’ve installed the plugin ok but the preview is not showing :( I read in http://wordpress.org/plugins/live-comment-preview/faq/ and still can’t seem to get it working! help.
    theme’s comments.php file. It must contain the code

    <?php comment_form(); ?>

    or <?php do_action(‘comment_form’, $post->ID); ?>.

    I checked and didn’t see the code therefore I added… and still didn’t work.

    1. WHICH LINE SHOULD I ADD THE ABOVE CODE?

    Can I make the preview display in another location?

    Yes, you can add the code <?php live_preview(); ?> in comments.php where you want the preview to be show.

    2. WHERE SHOULD I ADD THE ABOVE CODE?

    Thank you so much

    Please ask specific questions on the appropriate forum:

    http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/live-comment-preview

    It’s not BP related, a third party plugin, and we’re not necessarily going to be familiar with it’s setup and configuration, also we have no knowledge of what theme you are using or how that’s setup or where they may have put the comments form code.

    Hi @batmanfan, I make @hnla‘s comment, mine. I’ve never used this plugin before, but I know what it does.

    You’ll have better luck posting your question in the appropriate forum. =)
