Thanks Jill, I recall it being there prior to the changes, but it doesnt appear to be there now.

I'll check the timing- I'm pretty sure that can be adjusted.

A round of applause for Jill and Scottie. Great job setting the forum up. This is a slick site!

Any chance we can get a spell checker for our posts. I'm the world's worst. Can't type or spell (or chew bubble gum for that matter.)

Hmm...hadn't thought about a spell checker. Will see if that's some kind of add on module and let you know.

LOL- I've been working on that.

Matt's got a neat thing you can add to your browser to do spell check- maybe he would post it here for us?

I'm looking for something to integrate in the meantime...

I saw at the IBP forum that there is a module for spellcheck, but the user has to first download IEspell from IEspell.com. Then we can enable a spellcheck button on the forum that calls the IEspell window. It won't work unless the user has IEspell installed, however, so it might be more confusing to people than helpful.

They were thinking of working on a module that worked with Word's dictionary, which would be great because most everyone has that. But unfortunately, they don't see to have that one completed at this time.

You might try IEspell.com anyway if you're using IE. I think it allows you to spell check anything in your browser. I haven't looked at it, however.

Matt's solution works with Word.

I grabbed it and am posting here:

If you are like me, you go back and edit your posts constantly to fix spelling, grammatical errors, etc.

One of my programmers gave me a script today that will automatically spell check text that you have written in a text box on a form.

Take the following code:

oShell= new
ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");
oShell.SendKeys( "^c" ); // copy
oWord= new ActiveXObject("Word.Application");
oWord.Visible= true;
oWord.Documents.Add();
oWord.Selection.Paste();
oWord.ActiveDocument.CheckSpelling();
oWord.Selection.WholeStory();
oWord.Selection.Copy();
oWord.ActiveDocument.Close(0);
oWord.Quit();
var nRet= oShell.Popup(
"Apply changes?\nClick OK to replace all selected text.",
0,
"Spell Check Complete",
33 );
if ( nRet == 1 ) {
oShell.SendKeys( "^v" ); // paste
}


1. copy to notepad
2. save as spellcheck.js in the c:temp directory
3. open IE
4. open windows explorer, browse to the c:temp directory
5. click and drag the spellcheck.js file into your links on the IE browser.

The next time you are composing a message select all of the mesage in the text box, then copy.
Click the spellcheck link on your browser.
Word will automatically open, spellcheck, select replace text, and the text you have written will automatically change and word will close.

very cool.

Scottie - as you're doing such a great job in setting up this forum, can I make a suggestion for a little addition ?

At the bottom of the page, you can click to the page number of the current topic you want to view (eg. this topic = Pages: (3) 1 2 [3] ). Could you add a "Goto previous" & "Goto next" page link ?

Its not important, just nice to be able to not think & just press a button.

Something keeps killing Safari when I browse this in tabs in it, but I have a feeling it's probably not you. :/ I'd best do some experimentation and sort that out. In the meantime, Mozilla it is. (Why oh why doesn't IE come out with tabs? Well, I probably wouldn't use it anyway.)
I had something very deep and clever to say here but in the scrolling down through all the messages I forgot it. That, also, is not a problem with this forum, but one I will have to look elsewhere to rectify. (this is going to get worse with age? Man, I'll be dead of sheer forgetfulness before I hit 40 at this rate.)
Anyhow, keep up the good work, it's exciting to be in on something this cool this early so I can hear all about the work that goes into it. Looking forward to a lot of time spent (some may say wasted but to them i say phooey, just wait until I make my millions with the knowledge gleaned form these forums; I *won't* buy you a Lear jet if you're mean to me) here!

Thanks for the thanks, Phil!

I've added that to my list.

When ever I visit the forum I find my self going through stuff I've already read. Is there a way to look at just what is new?

I think the link up at the top that says "View New Posts" should work for you. That's what I usually use.
