    Sorry guys. I can't believe I'm doing this, but anyway...

    I have a wink file I wish to show the support crew so that when I submit my question they will be better able to understand my problem. Only I have no idea how I will upload/insert/ this wink file given that it resides on my computer. My website isn't live so I don't know if I should just insert a hyperlink somewhere on a dummy text page and provide that url so you guys can see it.

    Can someone please advise how I can attach a simple wink file to my support question so that others may review it.

    If you have access to your site you could just upload it and give a link. That said, go for describing it :)

    Thanks Podz, I'll give it ago.

    Prior to becoming a very new WP fanatic, I looked at drupal. Incidentally, good software, but very difficult to master. I like WP for a lot of reasons but it lacks one particular functionality that I desperately need in my website - a damn good comment/preview.

    My website, when I finally get it up and running, is for writers primarily and as such, I offer a registered area for users to upload (type in) a whole chapter of their unpublished work (5000 words give or take a word) so that high profile publishers and agents in our specific genre can review and even facilitate contracts.

    However, I really do need a very good preview function integrated into my website. Drupal has an excellent comment/preview node/plugin. I'd image that you've seen it, even submitted a comment or two, yourself?

    I've searched WP plugins for that exact same comment/preview, where a user clicks "add a comment" type link on the bottom of an article, and the page reloads with the article in question at the top with the author's particulars, then mid-way down the page is the user’s name and then a fairly large form box/section for commenting. At the bottom of the comment box are TWO buttons.

    First button “Preview�
    Second button “Post�

    A user can type whatever they like, click Preview and the entire comment is loaded into a new page for the user to review and correct any spelling/typos at their leisure. If the user wants to add additional comments, they can because the comment input area is underneath the draft comment.

    And, again, if more comments are added, the user can click “preview� and review his/her comments for typos. Once he/she is satisfied with the comment, then clicking “Post� will submit the comment into the public arena.

    I need that type of commenting / preview for my website. Is this possible?

    The existing plugins do not offer such a large scale commenting or preview like Drupal. I know that sounds dreadful but that’s where I stand.

    Your help or thoughts would be truly appreciated
