#26267 new enhancement

Do action before #minor-publishing-actions in publish meta-box

I've stumble on a use case where we would have to create a custom preview button on the publish meta-box.

There is currently no hook to add custom content at the end of the #minor-publishing-actions div.

I propose adding a hook right before the division is closed.

Adding a hook here is making me nervous for some reason, even though I usually love hooks on the edit screen. The publish metabox is already so cluttered and maintaining compat with hooks can make rethinking difficult. Would like some more opinions here.

I would prefer having the option that might result in a little clutter due to plugins than to not have the option.

I think I'm more worried about maintaining compat into the future :)

Maybe I'm just being daft but I'm having trouble thinking of compatibility issues this might raise in the future. Could you give me an example?

I'm also having problem with foreseeing compatibilities issues. Right now the only way we can add a custom button to the publish meta-box is at the end. Having a hook here would make it more flexible.

If we add a hook in there, it should probably be named post_submitbox_minor_actions for consistency with post_submitbox_misc_actions added in [12000], and go above <div class="clear"></div>.
