im not the most educated person and i struggle with spelling and grammer as most of you know lol, also for a lot of people in this forum english is their second language, would a spellcheck be possible admin ? even if you could add one during the next upgrade. most forums seem to have one now. Confused

I dont think it matters too much, I know some ppl get real upset over a miss placed ., bad spelling etc, but most of the time it dont matter. init ight.

It's impossible to get a spellchecker that will fix it automatically, and people will never use it if they have to do something active for it to work, ie. correct their errors etc. If only it was certain words that were normally misspelled, it would be possible for the forum to do a "search & replace", but since there's probably alot of different way to misspell alot of words, I doubt the list will ever be comprehensive enough.

Grammar etc - that's even more (more impossible).

The best thing is to just use the builtin stuff in firefox etc.

i do use spellcheck on other forums that have it built in (manual version), i just thought if was easy to install then it would be worth doing, but its not a major concern. Smile

Does it check grammar too? And what happens if you spell "erors" instead of "errors", does it call you names, does it just fix it, or does it say "somethings wrong with something in your post" ?

its just an ABC button you can press whist posting, if your unsure of a certain word you use it, simple.

------------
its the same as any other spellcheck ive used, only the buttons right there to use if you want, its just a convenience thing. and no it doesnt check grammer that im aware of.

My question still remains Big Smile What happens when you push it then, and if you spell "erors" instead of "errors", does it call you names, does it just fix it, or does it say "somethings wrong with something in your post" ?

So basically it just tells you which words are misspelled and offers what it thinks is correct, to be replaced with?

yes, when you press it, it goes through all the words it finds doubtfull one by one and gives you a list of possible replacments which you can either change or ignore, it also has a built in dictionary if you want to look up a meaning of a word. Smile, i just find it handy thats all. Blink

Sounds too complicated for something we could built ourselves and I dont know if there's such a plugin available for the scripts that we use.

yeah, it wouldnt be worth losing any sleep over, i just thought if it was a simple add on then it would be worth it. Smile note that all the forums ive seen it on are the same "forum model" if that makes any sense. heres an example *link removed*

Your link just went to a login page, so no worry, but I removed it anyway.

I doubt we will be able to get such a thing here, unless there's already a plugin available that can be converted or something. Probably easier that people just learn a little bit english Big Smile
