View Full Version : Spell-checking in posts?
7th November 2009, 10:22
As I'm typing new posts, I notice that some of my words get underlined in red. I assume I'm being warned that that word might not be spelled correctly. Yet I don't see any way to spell-check what I'm writing. Help!

The forum its self does not have any built-in spell checker. Though from what I've seen it used too.
That would be your browsers built-in spell checker adding the red underlines.
Try right clicking on the word with the underline and you should (At least with Firefox) see a selection of alternative words which it thinks you could mean.
A bit more info, if you're using Firefox. (http://download-firefox.org/firefox-help/how-to-use-spell-checker-in-firefox/)

Google Chrome has an additional spell checker built in also.
To correct the word, simply right click and click the chosen word. A bit like in Microsoft Word etc.
Hope this helps,
