Preview changes in real-time using the wikitext editor[edit]

Example of the wikitext editor with the new button in the toolbar


On June 14, we will introduce a new feature. It allows you to preview your changes side by side when writing in the 2010 wikitext editor. The goal is to make it easier for you to review changes while editing. This was the wish number four of the Community Wishlist Survey 2021.

What will change?

In the 2010 wikitext editor toolbar, a new button will appear with the label “Preview”. The button will enable a side by side comparison showing what the published content will look like.

The button will be available for all logged in users on this wiki. Everyone will be able to opt-out using the Gadgets tab of the preferences.

What do I need to do?

Provide feedback about the effect the feature has on your editing experience.
