I know this is probably asking a lot, but when it comes to submitting postings, I try real hard to ensure I spell words correctly. Unfortunately, I'm not as smart as some people give me credit for, and I fear some words are misspelled without my direct knowledge of them (ergo, the "sic" I include when I'm in doubt).

I know there are some forums that make available a spell checker within their programs, but don't know if this is one of them. Would it be possible to check into this and, if there is, implement it?

Thank you.

I don't believe that is an available option as it has been brought up a few times before.
Don't sweat it too much, we all mis-spell words.

Oh, well. I tried. It's back to using http://www.dictionary.com for me.

I don't think I'd been here a week, Road, and I was hoping for a spelkekker.

Correction, you had not been here a week before WE were hoping for a spellchecker ..... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously, we had a spell checker at one time which was an "add on" to the forum but in the conversions it was no longer viable. One solution some have used in other forums is to cut the post, paste it into their email program, spellcheck it, cut it again, and paste it back into the post. I have not had enough incentive to use that method, as is evidenced by the numerous typos in my posts.
