It works for me... but, it doesn't seem to insert the corrected text back into the POSTING window. Seems that in Classic there was a second button which prompted whether you wanted to overwrite your original text with the corrected text.

The only way I found to move the corrected text back into the POSTING window was manual cut-and-paste.

Did I miss something?

Here's a screen shot of a Classic final SpellChecker page. When you click on it, I believe that the CLOSE button copies the corrected text back into the Posting window.

It does work in 7.1 but there is a big diffenece between this mod and the one used in the 6.7.x classic version. While it would be nice to get that level of functionality into threads it doesn't seem like the author is working on mods anymore.

How difficult is it to "convert" a cgi script to php? I know it's more difficult then I would think, else someone would have done it by now.

:sniff: my poor brett is too cool for us now...

BTW, if it where just a matter of "porting" it from cgi to php it'd be simple; howevever the two forum products (UBB.Classic and UBB.Threads7) are completely differant

This is the only spellcheck addon for anything in the 7.x series of the UBB.

One of the files have been changes since this mod was 1st written.

In editpost.tpl find:
Code
<input tabindex="4" type="button" name="preview" value="{$lang.DOPREVIEW}" class="form-button" onclick="doPreview();" />

And add under.
Code

<input type="button" name="spellcheck" value="{$lang.SPELL_CHECK}" onclick="window.open('http://www.spellcheck.net/cgi-bin/spell.exe?action=checkpg&string='+escape(document.replier.Body.value + ''), 'message', 'toolbar=yes,menubar=no,location=no,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=no,width=700,height=600');" class="form-button" />

That's cool. With 7.2 being released I can now pick and choose what I want to be installed again and wanted to see how your mod compared to the one in this thread. It's like being a kid in a modding candy store.

well, if you've used Gmail, then it's exactly like that look/feel with me swapping out the textarea with a hidden spell check area on the fly, then back.

it's all done inline with no popups..

Sirdude,

Did you ever get to post your spellchecker now that 7.2 is out?

no, since FF has a built in one that is better and IE has one available.. the customer decided not to want it.

So what's the latest consensus on adding a Spellchecker?

We just upgraded from 7.2.2 to 7.4.1 and lost our previous one. And I'm getting a ton of notes letting me know that they miss it!!

well, when you have it for Firefox and IE as an easy add-on or an integral part of the browser, i see it hard to justify writing any code to do it..

i'll bet spell check also exists for Opera, Safari and Chrome too..

so the key is to educate your users on how they can get spellcheck with the browser they are using..

I approve SD's comment above... Nowadays everything has a built in spellcheck; why worry about having to hack a mod into your forum everytime you have to upgrade when you don't need to?

Okay, I'll bite... As much as I use IE, I was unaware that it has spellchecking capabilities now.

I just went to Microsoft's site and couldn't find any reference to it. what am I missing? Which version of IE? Or are you referring to Vista?

Most of my users have IE and I can't ask them to go to FF or Chrome. Heck if they were that flexible, then they wouldn't be asking for a built-in spellchecker! ha!

Thoughts? Thanks -

Google toolbar... hummm, I already have that loaded on dis pc. Let me see if it finds the errors in this sentence.


Well. Not too bad.. .found three out of the four typos. Notice that "dis" is still there, instead of "this".

Okay! Let me post a note to my community and tell them to go get Google... Let's see how far I get with THAT suggestion! smash

I'm still a fan of this. Anything that gives the end (l)user another tool that offers to de-dumbify them is a good thing, and this mod is so incredibly easy to implement.

Works for 7.5 yay

I realize that this topic is ancient but seeing that no one posted a link to the most used IE spell checker on the planet which has been out for years, I thought I would do that. hehe

Go here: ieSpell. It's 100% free and works in ALL versions of IE including v. 8.
