Spell check. PLEASE. I can't spell worth a darn and I'm too lazy to run everything through Word before I post it! :P

Here or in Word? I always have the red line in Word, but here, nothing. Am I missing it or do we not have it? :?

I have it here!! Maybe it has something to do with your browser, I'm using Mozilla Firefox. :)

I hate Mozilla. If that's the issue, I will just continue to spell things incorrectly and look stupid. :P

Incouragable

I got nothing. Is that spelled wrong?

Try downloading the Google tool bar. If you do that there is an option on it to check spelling and translate things from other languages.

I looked at spell check functions for phpBB when I was building this forum and tested a couple with unsatisfactory results. If I ever get time, I'll have another look round and see what's available.

There is however apparently a plugin for IE that people say works fine (although I don't know personally as I haven't tried it so do so at your own risk). Details here http://www.iespell.com or you could try IE7Pro which has a spell check built in http://www.ie7pro.com

My favoured option however (because it's the browser I've used for years now) is Maxthon which also has a spellcheck function built in http://www.maxthon.com

Oh and for the record, I wouldn't install Google's tool bar ever on any machine no matter what people gave me for doing so and anyone who values their privacy wouldn't either. You may want to read Googles laughably called "Privacy" policy on the tool bar (and any of their other software for that matter) before installing anything they provide.

Thanks for the reply, Ian. I'll try some of your suggestions.

I really only care when I'm participating in a serious discussion. I get so annoyed when I'm making a completely brilliant point and then accidentally spell something like "indicative" wrong. (Is that spelled right? :P)

I didn't know google's privacy policy was as bad as you said it is when I posted that Ian. I only made the suggestion because the google toolbar was preinstalled on my computer when I got it. And it's something I use every day.

I think my husband has it on dreaded Mozilla. I wonder if that's part of the reason why I hate Mozilla so much.

And he worries about me having such an online presence... :P
