New Write Post Preview – Real Live Preview

Users of woke up this morning to a new feature, one I’ve mentioned before and also described in my post on The Perfect WordPress Dashboard. It is the ability to “see” your post preview in your WordPress Theme – giving you a live preview of what your post will look like when published using the CSS styles used by your Theme – in fact, you see your post in your Theme.

You can do this yourself. When your post is in Draft mode, open another window or tab and type in your blog address using the post ID number: This only works when the post is still a Draft.

WordPress developers have added this Draft view feature in an iframe in the former HTML text preview. It is brilliant. Thank you!

If you are a user, send hugs through the Feedback button.
