    Could we have a test area where users could post try out their posts before going live in the other forums ? I know I'm a bit reluctant to try and post a fen or pgn in the chess forum as I dont want to clog it up with posts whic hdont work or have umpteen edits on a post before i give up ?

    You already have this, just tick the "preview before post" box on the posting screen before you click "post". The final result will be displayed. When you're satisfied with this, untick the box and click "post" again to let your post go on public display.

    ok ive just posted a pgn on the chess forum and as i suspected when you click "preview" you see the code not the game so you have no idea if your code has worked that's the kind of thing i was hoping to play with in a test area
