Disabling Preview

I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this one, but thought I'd ask anyway, as I get asked this a lot by colleagues.

Is it possible to disable the Preview pop-up for certain pages or users? eg. in our Sandpit/test area, where we are doing hundreds of page edits on the same page within a day sometimes, can we disable this feature?

I know why it's there, and understand how it supports Confluence processes, but want to ask so I can have a definitive answer when I get asked.

Thanks,

Tim

I don't think this is possible though. Looking through the plugin, I still don't think it's possible and such customization is not recommended as it may have an impact towards Confluence and produced problems.

OK, thanks Hanis.

In my last compny we used a reasonably old version of confluence not sure exactly which but I guess V3 or there abouts had a wiki markup tab in edit mode. At the time, editing a page had 3 buttons, save (equivalent to publish) preview and cancel.

Is there any feature in the current confluence which allows us to bypass the preview stage rather than just disable it?
