Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Translations  

you must have jquery in your template in order for this to work, I did not provide it in the plugin because almost every site already has jQuery.
if you need jQuery you can install Drc -Core although is not required.

After searching for something to display live previews of a thread as it was being typed I came across two mods with similar functions although you needed to click to preview. I wanted something more automatic.

There are many ways to implement a "textarea" output to display things in real time as it's typed, but what about BBCODE we need to be able to show BBCODE within our preview, along with custom BBCODE.

I could have created my own JS and allow users to list their BBCODES as an option, but why make the end user enter every BBCODE they have in a list. Thus I opted to use vbulletin's default parser. Calling it every time there was a keypress was entered could prove to be VERY problematic for larger sites with multiple users creating threads at the same time. To overcome this I chose to add a delay, so when a user stops typing then the function is called thus providing the "live preview" those of you who have ever used codepen.io this feature is exactly like that.
