I like to use HTML and other fancy stuff in my messages, but I'm always afraid that it might come out wrong. It would be nice to have a button next to Post Your Topic that, if clicked, brings maybe a pop-up or shows you a mock up of what it will look like to the public. Although my reason is less common, there are an abundance of other reasons as to why a preview function would be practical.

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to give you an update on this idea. I spoke with our product team, and learned that this idea is something that is definitely in our plan, though we don't have a timeframe for when it'll be deployed for our web application. As I mentioned in an earlier comment, this functionality is currently available with our Engage Widgets and we do plan to bring it into the web application. We will keep you posted as things progress. Thanks!

I'm thrilled to announce that we implemented this feature, along with an easy-to-use rich text editor, in our new community application






Details about what plans are eligible for the new app, and how to switch over are detailed in this Help Center article: FAQs about the New Community App.

Enjoy!
