Hello,

You could hit the 'Preview Forum' forum link, however, I believe this will only show saved changes, but allow you to view the forum in a new tab without leaving the ACP, allowing for a quicker way to correct problems, issues or changes or simply to reset a setting back to the way it was. My personal recommendation would be to make all adminstrative changes or stuff like that at the quietest time of day for your forum, the time where the least amount of traffic is on the site. That way if you do make a mistake, it won't be as tragic or affect that many people and you can easily make any nessecary corrections.

Regards,
-Brandon

Thank you....I was thinking of themes, scripts etc...I thought I could do them and then preview before I hit that saved button.

For that stuff I would personalky recommend a seperate test forum. That way you could test the codes, themes, etc on the test forum before bringing them onto the main forum. Ever since I made a test forum, my life and job of administrating my forum has become much easier and stress free. Now I test all codes 1st on the test forum, make sure they work and iron out any kinks before even adding it to the main forum. Best way to ensure your original forum doesn't get messed up by faulty coding or anything. If that is what your doing, I would personally recommend getting a test forum, you will see most of your worries/stress goes right away or atleast down to a managable level.
