Currently there is no spell checking feature on vBulletin. One of the better web sites to do the check is: http://www.spellcheck.net/

Copy your entire post to the clipboard and paste it in the window at that site. After checking, copy that text and replace your post. A little kludgy, but it works.

A somewhat better alternative is to use a good word processing application, (e.g., Word) and compose your post there including spell checking it. Then copy/paste it to the reply window here.

Of course for shorts posts you won't even need to check it. BTW, we don't have any spelling police on Staff. :)

"Of course for shorts posts..."


Hum... Would that be a post comparing Fruit of the Looms against Haines, Mal?

Or maybe boxers vs. briefs?

Or maybe the age-old question...

underware vs au natural?

:p

Actually, I believe this software is set to work with spellcheck.net, but there's a price. It's something like $150/10k posts that they check.

So, now that we've been up a week it would have cost $300 00 -- that's more than bandwidth! :what:

Probably not going to turn that feature on anytime soon. :(

Certainly not worth the price. I'll keep on doing what I've been doing; Open a new message in Outlook and spell check there.

You seem to be seeking underlying meaning where there is none, so to speak. ;)

In truth, I meant what I said. If the discussion is about .22 Shorts vs .22 Long Rifle, for instance, then no spell check is required. For all other subjects spelling will be critiqued and graded. :D

Oh Mal, now you've got grammar problems with your last sentence!

You're not doing well this evening!
