Can you Disable Post Preview? (8 posts)

    Hey, guys, is there a way to disable the post preview in 2.0? I'd rather not have it there, because it takes bandwidth, and my posts are too image heavy as it is.

    I hope you can, because I too think it is useless bloat. I prefer to keep a separate window handy and just refresh my view there when I feel like it.

    I'd also like the ability to disable some of the useless feeds that go into the admin dashboard. Three messages over the last two weeks were just wishing some girls happy birthday. That's bandwidth I don't need to waste.

    I'm surprised no one has answered this thread with a way to do this yet. I'd think having the preview window was a big problem for a lot of people...

  5. Delete lines 82 through 87 of /wp-admin/post.php.

    That's these lines:

    ?>
    <div id='preview' class='wrap'>
    <h2 id="preview-post"><?php _e('Post Preview (updated when post is saved)'); ?> <small class="quickjump"><a href="#write-post"><?php _e('edit &uarr;'); ?></a></small></h2>
    <iframe src="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" width="100%" height="600" ></iframe>
    </div>
    <?php

    This fix was suggested to me lat night to remove the feeeds and it worked like a charm.

    Y'know, I never even noticed the "preview" stuff until you brought it up.... it's below the fold.... I don't notice that it's "useless bloat" either, and I'm on crap 30 year old analog phone line dialup....

    As far as the dashboard: you can manually edit /wp-admin/index.php to remove anything you don't really want in there. Things like angsuman's dashboard replacement are fine too, but really, it's just like any other html file....
