The Spell Check Sucks

NetzokoNetzoko Member Posts: 1,271


This has been driving me nuts forever. Why is it that the forum has red swigly lines for mispelled words, but it won't help you correct them? If you hit the "ABC" button it gives a massive ColdFusion error, and right clicking on misspelled words does nothing.

Why tell me something is wrong, yet not offer to fix it?

Also, why are words like MMORPG, Warcraft, and Warhammer said to be spelled wrong?

    In your settings, change Default Post Editor to BBML Editor (instead of WYSIWYG). This disables the built-in spell check and allows you to use Firefox's spellcheck.

    and Safari's? It seems as if the editors don't agree with it.
