Recently i pulled out a snippet i use often and posted it in the Snippets Section. Unfortunately, when i was almost finished writing i noticed there was no preview button. Suddenly i felt in dire straits.

If there was a club for abusers of the preview button, i would be the honorary captain. i've filled netscape's history cache with links to the same page, modified slightly between every iteration of preview. It is nice to be able to beautify my posts (as much as possible given my limitations) before i send them to the monestary.

Please god, let there be a preview button in the Snippets Section for us lowly monks that have poor formatting and writing skills (that we may beautify the post so those who are above us do not snuff it).


PS i only previewed this one about 8 times...

    Go back to your snippet, look to the bottom left, right below your code, where it says Edit your snippet here and click. Then update your snippet 11 times for good luck. :-)

    But you can edit your code snippit, so it's kinda like a code preview, only other people can see it while you're editing it.

    Update: You've got to be fast to beat tilly to a reply around here. I was sure I was going to get First Post :)

    I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.

      Normally I am slower than that, That just happened to be posted at the same time that I was working through Newest Nodes.

      I will try to be even slower next time. :-)
