What happened to the thread preview?

    I thought when I first came to the forum, and you hovered the cursor over the thread title, it showed a snip of the first thread content.....

    Now, it shows a vbtooltip of go to first post.

    That's lame, if that functionality has been taken away. Is there a poll somewhere where a moran wanted it to be more like vB?

    It did? As far as I know, the tooltip has ALWAYS been there. Thread preview has already been requested.

    Thread previews are implemented? I thought they weren't here yet (which is why there's a suggestion thread to have them added). :confused:

    I remember somebody requesting thread previews very early on... meaning it wasn't ever here. You're remembering wrong. :p The way it is now is how it's been since they opened the forum.

    Actually, in vBulletin, hovering over the thread title does show a preview. ;)

    Why does people want it to be like vB?

    In this case, it has nothing to do with wanting to be like vB. It's a very handy feature, that makes perusing threads much easier. I can often tell by the thread preview (if it exists) whether or not I want to open the thread.

    It has been asked and I agree, in some way/shape/or forum. Possibly a right click/hover/click on box...

    Maybe I'm confusing thread preview with the forum description......

    Hover over a forum name, and the forum description rotates into view.
