    spell checker

    Would you please explain where the spell checker is? I write "spell checker" in the search box but I haven't found anything.

    Thank you.

    Re: spell checker

    There is no spellchecker built in to the forum. Generally, there is one on your browser. You will need to set your browser's spellchecker to English if you want it to work while you type posts here.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: spell checker

    If you open Preferences in Firefox and choose the Advanced options, you can tell it to check your spelling as you type.

    Re: spell checker

    My browser is for Turkish so this feature is not working probably because of this reason. So do you know any add-on to be installed to Firefox as a spell checker?

    Thank you.

    Click on "Tools", "Add-ons", then you can search for whatever dictionary in the page that appears.
