I highly recommend ieSpell- it incorporates a SpellChecker into your right-click menu for Internet Explorer. I find it pretty handy, especially when I stay awake for 20+ hours posting in 715.29443 different forums. Laughing out loud

Here's a screenshot

Yup

I've noticed it and used it- good stuff. Smile If I ever get my phpnuke site off the ground (argh!) I intend to use that spellcheck mod.

I'm curious, where did you find Sheila? Laughing out loud She's a riot...

Edit: I take it the XP rebuild went okay?

yeah that spell check does the job well for me. Did you try and see if phpnuke people have their own module ? Because the way it implements into the phpbb forum would be different than the way you would implement it in phpnuke.

hehe sheila is undergoing training these days in a secret forum Smile. So next time you speak to her, she will be much more clever.

yup the xp rebuild all went good. Now I got to get my .NET and Oracle installed.... that would take a couple of hours. Shock and then download a few service packs.

No, I actually want to know where you got Sheila Laughing out loud When/if my phpnuke site starts working I think a chatbot could help to generate some traffic.

I haven't looked into a spellcheck mod for phpnuke yet, but I know there are plenty. I've installed nuke three times now, with advice from the experts at nukecops, and they're stumped as well. It's the story of my life... :roll:

Congrats on getting your box back on its feet. Mine crapped out on me about a month ago- I haven't tried to hook any homegrown API's into the NT kernel since. Shock

spell checker upgrade

I'm looking at upgrading to 2.0.6 over the next couple of weeks.
While upgrading I will look at the spell checker mod.

The Google toolbar has a great spell checker for anytime you are filling out forms, chats, forums etc.

Whatever happened to Knightwolf? I never knew Packetrouter (although reading through the old threads saw he was quite active), but Knight Wolf - where did you go?

Spellcheck for Forums

Sorry about the avatar. I changed it Smile

The Google Toolbar Beta has all of the extra bells and whistles (like the IE version).

In my pre CSS forum (pre-FF) days I only new IE. Only toolbar I used was from Google. So when I was shown the light and got FF most of the features are already included like - find on page and auto fill, but not the spell checker.

When you switch to spell check mode all editable regions of the page get checked. Not like a regular spell check from MS Word nor like the one from this forum, but rather any word that is misspelled gets underlined and if clicked gives alternate spellings along with the choices Edit, Ignore All and Add to Dictionary.
