Spell Checker for posts??
« on: September 02, 2008, 12:26:19 PM »
Is there a built-in spell checker for posts?  I did try to research this prior to posting but I couldn't find anything in "Help" or search.  Any help is always appreciated.

No, it is disabled as most modern web browsers have this functionality built in.

Well, hell jus froze over. I agree with Kurt here (although he is still a dick).

Thanks for the quick reply...now I've got to go wrangle my web browser and figure out where it is.  I feel so stupid.   ::)

Oh wait, I forgot to add....I'm using IE7 which doesn't seem to have one.  Oh well, thats what I get for being a Microsoft "Sheep" in the first place right?  Well, I'm off to download my plug-in.

FireFox v3

Opera 9.5
http://www.opera.com/download/get.pl?id=31523&thanks=true&sub=true


Both of these browsers kick the shit out of IE.  Try one of them, I can guarantee you'll prefer it.
