Brethern and Sistern (excuse the homo sap bias):

For the too-many-th time, I discovered after posting that I'd omitted a critical point, markup or something else that left me dissatisfied with the node and then turned myself into a serial updater by adding an error for every correction.

Therefore, seizing the bull by the bs ^H^H^H ... er, horns, may we discuss a possible change to the update capability; namely, an optional "preview before updating" configuration, which might be added to the option for direct posting without previewing which exists for Monks of certain orders?

Alternately, we might add a second, "preview" button to the existing "update" button and redirect the action that way.

And, actually I'm very curious about why this hasn't surfaced recently. It may be this has engendered little interest previously or that it's a fundamentally 'bad idea' or that it's in the 'too hard' box (but, without suggesting I'm sure I could do the job, I don't see why that would be the case).

What say you?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
