I was embedding an image into the forum just now, and thought to myself:

"I wonder if that image will embed right?"

That's when I suddenly developed the desire to be able to preview my posts before I submitted them, as I know certain servers actually block the ability to embed images that they're hosting. This would also be handy for checking links so people would have all these errant [/url]s floating around the place!

Of course, if people don't know how to use BBCode, they could always use those handy buttons at the top...

So what exactly are you suggesting? Some sort of preview post system? I think it has been suggested, but if not, i really like the idea because many people have tried to post pictures, but the result ending in a link instead of an image.

This has been suggested a couple times before, actually, it was once just yesterday, like 7 threads down from this one. Here is the link to the other thread. Check that one out for more peoples opinions!
