Non-program-related enhancement request.

Postby Merlin » Wed Jun 11, 2014 3:20 am

If it doesn't pose too much difficulty, could we please have a spellchecker on the board?
It wasn't too hard to set up for SMF, so I'm sure it's available for the much more widely used phpBB you've chosen.
Only my typing is excerable, and my proof reading not that much better.
I end up editing posts about 4 times typically having spotted errors.
Little red squiggles underneath would be a huge help :D

I'm sure I'm not the only one who would find it so, especially as the board grows and becomes more popular.

I'll look into it these days. Remind me if I forget to do so.

I managed to resist writing a facetious comment about my favourite sparring partner on this forum.
I was about to suggest it was not your typing that was execrable, but the content.

oops, but I just did :lol:

(Only joking)

If you have access to Firefox, it has an inbuilt spell checker. It is unable to help with the content though, that is operator error. :D

I've been fighting with FireFox all along, It's not my fault if all the recent updates and changes have rendered the stupid thing virtually inoperable. If it has a spell check it's well hidden.

Come back IE all is forgiven! (I'm actually seriously tempted).

Before doing so, you might want to consider Pale Moon.
