Article Preview

Better Preview provides you a preview button for the article you are working on. See what the article will look like before saving or publishing it!

Advanced View Site

Better Preview also changes the way the 'View site' link in your administrator works. It will make that link go to the frontend equivalent of that page. It will also display links to any parent pages (like parent category pages when editing an article).


How to use it: https://www.regularlabs.com/betterpreview

Functionality

Like all of Regular Labs Extensions it works just the way you want it to, and does more than you expect.

100
Ease of use

I honestly don't think he could make it any easier to install, update, and use.

100
Support

One of the great joys of trying new things from Regular Labs is that it's another chance to experience Peter's remarkable customer support.

Documentation

Everything is clear, to the point and written in a way that you don't have to be a "high end techy" to understand.

I used this to: Previewing all parts of our websites.

Functionality

Does what it says: preview your article as it will appear on your website (replaces the meaningless/useless preview in core Joomla).

Click install, then start using. Couldn't be easier.

This is one of those plugins that I ask, why isn't it a default Joomla feature like it is in WordPress? And then I asked, why didn't I start using this plugin years ago?? So much wasted time! Ha.



Needless to say, this plugin works excellent just like all of NoNumber's extensions. Great previews. Really helps page development, especially for my clients who are less Joomla-savvy than others.



A must-have for all Joomla sites for sure!

super service


Posted on 02 April 2014

The extension is usefull and in case of some (very rare) issues, help is there and things are fixed right away! Very recommandable!

This plugin has solved a long standing shortcoming of core Joomla for me. No longer will I have to sift through site links to view the page I am working on, now I have a direct link to the exact page from the article manager! Even though I had some minor issues they were resolved fast and professionally. I would highly recommend this plugin for everyone!

With the exception of being able to preview some videos (YouTube, etc.) that forbid it, this extension is EXACTLY what I needed. It shows what your article will look like when published on the site.



Peter's support is also Top-Notch. He responded directly to emails and even helped me figure out an issue I was having.

Simple but so valuable


Posted on 14 January 2014

For a CMS that relies so heavily on the concept of articles, it's amazing that Joomla forces you to save the article before you can see your edits on your site. Why that simple functionality is not in Joomla is a real flaw.



I just started using Real Preview (free version) and it does what it says, cleanly and without problems. My first reaction when using it to preview an article was, "Thank goodness!"

The Better Preview from NoNumber is the second reason we keep our subscription up at his site for his add ons! This is the most used feature of any site we build for clients. Peters support is second to none as well!

Better it be in J core


Posted on 09 February 2013

Absolutely needful extension since it's the only way to get a real preview with template & plugins.



Note - articles need to be saved before they can be reviewed, so perhaps it would be better to do autosave function in this extension or some temporary save with random url (even better).
