Spellcheck

Probably the wrong place to post this but... when is the spellcheck feature on this site going to be fixed? Someone told me I can just download Grammerly on my home computer, but I don't have internet access on my home computer. Mostly, I just use college library computers and occassionally my friend's laptop when I'm at his house watching his mother.

Is this a serious question? I'm not sure any application I use on any computers or devices that I have do NOT have spellcheck included. The browser I'm using right now does spell-checking on its own. Usually I write in Word documents, and that spell checks as well. Does the college library computer have a browser that doesn't have spell-check? I'm not sure I knew that such a browser existed today, honestly.

Just type in any word program like Microsoft word or Abiword or Open Office. Or copy/paste it into a word doc to double check. (Really though, it's better to write in a word doc. Half the times I got lazy and typed in the editor last story I'd end up losing text and having to rewrite it. Mostly from accidentally forgetting to save before adding a link, or shuffling between tabs and somehow saving an older version. So it's better to type it outside first, anyway, as the risk of losing it is less and you get a backup out of it.)

If you're not using the rich text editor then your browser should be doing spellcheck for you (both chrome and firefox do it at least).

If you're using the rich text editor I'm pretty sure it does have spell built it. What part of it is working wrong?

I use Firefox and the advanced editor. I've never seen the spellcheck squiggle pop up. I tried writing various jibberish and misspelled words, but there was no spellcheck.

I'm not sure if I'm using rich text editor. Normally, it's underlined misspelled words in red. Now it's not doing anything.

If you click a button on the screen to make things italic, you are using the RTE

Okay, thanks.

The RTE is broken.

You are using the RTE, and it's doing that to your posts. You can recognize it by the fact it's a hideous blinding white box surrounded by ugly cluttered buttons that always lags a moment before popping into existence any time you try to do anything. You can uncheck it in your profile, but you'll have to log out and then in again before it changes.

Okay, thanks, mizal. Um, where in my profile would I find that option? I seem to be at a loss.

Okay, I think I figured it out, mizal. Will this bring back spellcheck?

Okay, the spellcheck's working. Thanks, mizal. I appreciate all you do for me. The technical aspects of this site sometimes make me feel like Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer: "You're world frightens and confuses me!"
