To reproduce:

  1. Go to a Stack Exchange site you are not associated with
  2. Open any question, tap Add an answer, then compose an answer
  3. Click Preview
  4. Get an error message

    The account associated with the access_token does not have a user on the site

Preview seems to work once you are associated to the site.


This will be fixed in 1.0.84.

Generally when you preview an answer, the preview is generated by /questions/{id}/answers/add?preview=true which does validation and depends on the user existing. When a user doesn't exist on a site, we'll use /questions/{id}/answers/render instead.

You must log in to answer this question.
