New features launching today on Post/Reply screen

Hi everyone,

We’re happy to announce that we’re launching two long-awaited features today: the ability to preview your post before submitting it and the ability to see previous replies to a thread while you’re composing your reply. The features will launch gradually throughout the day, so some of you may see them earlier than others. It's nothing personal, just the way our launches work. Most of you probably won't see them until the late afternoon (EST).

These features have been frequently requested in the past, and we hope you will find them useful. Once you’ve had a chance to see and use the new functions on the Post/Reply screen, please feel free to post any constructive, relevant feedback about them in this thread.

We know that many of you are also eager to have the ability to edit your posts after they have been posted, and while the “Edit” button is not included in this launch, it will be here in the next few months. Development of the “Edit” button has been delayed just a little due to some organizational changes here at TA, but we expect development to be underway pretty soon. We will launch an "Edit" button, don't worry.

Thanks for all your feedback, and for your patience as we work together to make TripAdvisor better.

Excellent stuff TA, thankyou.. and nice to see also the "Before you post" box as well reminding people of guidelines etc... good move.

I didn't really feel the need for the preview as it is just another screen showing you what you have already typed anyways but just in another box lol, but the ability to view the previous posts is "definately" beneficial and makes life so much easier.

So thanks once again TA.. looking forward to the edit button as well :D

The edit will be a vast improvement. The problem is that the box you type in and the font is just to small to be able to catch all the errors.

The next thing I would like to see changed is the spacing. It would be great if we could type something on the next line without a new paragraph being created. This would make it a lot easier to transfer something from another site or Word.
