Please help me with... Thank you for hosting my first wiki!

Mediawiki offers a feature called "page preview" described in [[1]]: "Logged-in users can control their settings from two places. They may enable or disable Page Previews from the Appearance section of Special:Preferences."

Would you be so kind to tell me whether this feature is available in miraheze and where I can turn it on.

Thank you for your question. I know there's Page Previews and also Reference Previews. I'm not sure if this feature was eventually added into core MediaWiki, but I do see there's an extension Popups that appears to work with MediaWiki version 1.30 and higher (we are on 1.35 whereas the Wikimedia wikis are on 1.36). You can enable this extension in Special:ManageWiki/extensions on your wiki. Alternatively, you may wish to consider installing the Navigation popups gadget, which has the advantage of working in more than just main namespace (i.e., in user namespace). Note that the gadget and the extension do conflict with each other, so you will have to choose one or the other, or at least advise users that they should disable the one if they enable the other.
