Is it possible to add a "preview post" button so posters can review their posts as they will appear on site before submitting the topic?

The editor here is a more true What You See IWhat You Get (WYSIWYG) editor, meaning they've streamlined previewing posts and writing your posts into one function and got rid of previewing posts as it would be redundant.

Sorry, preview post, not review.

I've written a lot of posts in the past where I wasn't sure if the content was good or not. The "preview post" buttons usually took me to another page and after seeing my post in a different angle I was able to make necessary edits. This helped me to avoid disrespecting a lot of people by accident in the past and in turn avoided a lot of potential nasty flame wars. With that in mind, I don't think its entirely redundant but it's not my intention to argue.

I understand your perspective, I just unfortunately don't think IPS would write it into their software because from their perspective, their editor already does what the "preview post" of previous versions did. From a feature stand point, they just merged it into the main post editor.
