WordPress FAQ: Where did my Preview Link Go?

Where the hell did my “Preview Post” button go? We lost it with the Upgrade to 2.1, and I want it back.

This question comes from Cory Aldrich who echoes the sentiments of many WordPress users. In WordPress 2.1, the iframe that loaded the site in a window below the edit area of the Write screen, was removed. Mostly this was due to performance issue of loading a whole site inside a window. The outcry has been heard, however, and the Preview link has been restored to WordPress 2.2 – in a slightly different form. Changeset 5159 went back into the core on March 31st.
