I agree. There should be a preview button, before complete submission.

While I certainly agree that a preview feature is needed. Why would you be posting code that you haven't already tested and verified as error free?

Any code you submit should already have been fully tested and verified before you post the snippet/tutorial.

Use the Author & Contributers Forum
Create your own topic for your snippets and tutorials. This way you can preview and perfect them before submitting.

That'll work for noorahmad or any other Author/Contributor/Greeter but not for other users. I argue a preview button or a confirm post message would aid in the removal of spelling/gramatical errors, code mistakes, and duplicate posts.

Although, I know the Mods just LOVE cleaning up the forums.

there was no error in my code i always check my code completely before posting it, there was spell and grammar mistakes in my description text. that why i posted it again.
