    How long does this take? Because if thread preview is enabled on vBulletin and it doesn't work for me here, then its a brower problem.

      Thanks everyone, I already had 300 set in the Length of Preview.

      I rebuilt every item in the Update counters option, and set the Cached Posts Lifetime to 20 and now it works.

      Faranth, I only had posts placed by version 2.3.4, none from 3rc2, and it works. So I'm not sure what experiences you've had.

        You think the reason mines doesn't work can be because I converted from IB. But none the less, I did a new post, and still hovering my mouse over the thread title didn't show anything. Really starting to annoy me.

          Hmm, considering the database sits in a different directory from the vBulletin code, and when installing/upgrading you basically delete all vBulletin code and get fresh code, the only thing getting "updated" is the database. If you didn't have any errors with the database, it oughta be some combination of options in the database. Where, is the question!

          Are there any other applications on your server that you could do this to in order to identify if it's in the server or not?

          Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

            I was also thinking that, jeeps do you know if this forum has the hover feature on? Because I can't get it work for here also, so was thinking maybe it might be an Internet Explorer problem.

              I'm running IE6 on XP Pro and I have no problems with it. Are you running any pop-up blockers or other adware/spyware/security software? You could also check your IE advanced options for an obvious conflict in the settings...

                Are you not able to see the thread previews on vbulletin.com (i.e. - this forum) when putting your mouse over the thread title in the forum display (give it a few secs)? If not, then it may indeed be a browser issue, as the thread preview feature is enabled for this forum. If it is not working for you, then it *may* be working correctly on your forum, and you just can't tell...

                What browser are you using?

                  Ahah! Then it must be a browser issue if i can't see the thread previews on this forum. But what can be wrong with my browser.

                    Whoops... I missed that you were using IE... Hrmm... What version of IE are you using. I have IE6 at the office and IE5.5 at home and haven't had a problem with it. As the Sandman stated, maybe it is a security setting or advanced setting or something that you have enabled / disabled?

                        You could download Netscape (gasp) to see if that makes it work. Then, of course, remove it right away. Just kidding, for all you wacky Netscape lovers!

                          I'm going to try download mozilla firebird now and try it out with that.

                            ok, just tried it and it worked great, so it must be IE. Anybody know what can be wrong in IE?
