On the very page I am writing this post, clicking the Preview button results in a bar that says "Fetching preview..." and never shows the actual preview.

I investigated using Firefox's inspector, and the AJAX response coming back from the server is as follows (HTTP 200 status code):
Code:
<div>
<table border="0" width="80%" cellspacing="0" align="center" cellpadding="4" class="tborder">
<tr class="titlebg">
<td>An Error Has Occurred!</td>
</tr>
<tr class="windowbg">
<td style="padding: 3ex;">
Your session timed out while posting.  Please go back and try again.
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</div>
<div align="center" style="margin-top: 2ex;"><a href="javascript:history.go(-1)">Back</a></div>

But nothing has timed out because when I hit Post, it works fine.

Jits, maybe you can figure this out.

Ah so it's not just me.  The preview in quick reply doesn't seem to have an issue though.

Yeah the quick reply preview button doesn't use AJAX so that's probably part of it.

But even worse, he's not on the latest version. They're on 2.x or something now.

the only one of those I would support would be MyBB.

Weird.  Works for me in Opera.  What browser are you using?

Firefox for me, still not working.  Just gave it a run in Edge and Chrome and it worked fine.
