Is there really a point to it anyway? If there's something wrong with your post you can always edit it.

Impossible with UBB.

Sorry

Impossible? No. Able to be done? Yes. Gonna happen here? No.
That's the problem with changing the past. You never get to say "I told you so".

No, I'm not. There is a UBB hack that allows you to preview your post before submitting it. UBB is very, very flexible.

I know how hard it becomes to keep the boards current with hacks installed. I run my own UBB. That's why I know so much about it's abilities and code hacks.

The link for the preview post hack: <a href="http://www.ubbdev.com/db/cgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=20&t=000013" target="_blank">http://www.ubbdev.com/db/cgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=20&t=000013</a>

I've offered to help install these hacks and keep the boards current but no takers so far. Oh well!

Nah, I don't think you actually need this. As someone else mentioned: You can always go back and edit your message.

It's coming in UBB 6.2, which is currently in private beta. Expect it to go public beta sometime later this month or early in January.

That won't be out for at least another six months, probably (final version), but that's when it's coming.

Just a heads up, these are the other features coming with 6.2:

1. Who's Online
2. Polls
3. Post Preview
4. Email Notification Off Option
5. Private Forum Posting Enhancements

So please don't ask until 6.2's out.

thanks

Final public version of 6.2 in six months? Nah. Two or three after the beta release, max.

Infopop is slow, but they're not that slow.

OK, I checked. It was about five months between the public beta of 6.1 and the actual final release (not counting 6.1.0.1 and 6.1.0.2 bug fixes). My mistake.
