Is it possible to hide content in Post Preview (that is not hidden when the post is published)? I have customised single.php quite extensively and there are a few elements that I do not want my authors to load up every time they preview their post.

There is the handy is_preview function.

So somewhere in your single.php.

if (!is_preview()) {
     // Show stuff that doesn't belong on a preview.
  • Ah, I was not aware of that function, excellent!
