I would like to see a spell check routine on our web site.

Eh... what browser are you using? You already have a spell checker. Just do this: reply to this post and enter the following word: spel. Notice that it has a red underline squiggle thingy under it. Move your cursor over the word, right click and you should see the following words: spiel, spell, spec, sped, spew... just select the correct word from the list and go on to the next one. :)

Hmmm... don't know what to tell ya. Might be a setting or something in Exploder 9 or somethin'? But spell checking has been a part of the site (and HTML, in general) for ages now.

No Spillchucker for me either, but I'm using Firefox so that may have some bearing on it.

Following up on this issue: it seems that even the latest version of IE doesn't support a spell checker as part of the browser. This option is available, however, in both Firefox and Chrome.

I can install a spell checker for the forum, but I'm not really sure it's necessary given that most browsers except Internet Exploder support one out-of-the-box.


@ Paul

Firefox is one of those browsers that come with spiel-checking automagically turned on. I can only assume it got turned off somehow.

Look here:
How to turn spell checking on in Firefox.

Good for you Don! Mine is Firefox...I think...I just switched computer systems a little bit ago so still figuring out parts of it.
Some day when I have loads of extra time I want to add a cool signature photo thingy bopper like you guys have! It's like #853 on my To Do list.

I'll also answer an email here that you sent me a bit ago...PX sales have slowed down a bit but I will put a reminder out in the fall edition of the PFG for Christmas gift ideas early enough to remind people. I saw your email when it first came in on my phone but now all of my emails are showing up as "read" when I look at them on my phone first so I'm missing some when I actually sit down at my desk to respond, usually at the end of the day. I receive at least 75 - 100 per day. Grrrr...must figure that one out soon...that changed recently. Prior to this all emails still appeared as unread online even after checking them on the phone. Anyway, sorry for the delay! I need a geekie personal assistant! It takes me forever to resolve issues that others blink at. :(

Josie :)

I would help you with your signature Avatar but my current copy of MS Word doesn't allow me to do that any more. Even if I wanted to change mine I couldn't.
