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.
