What happened to the spell check?
It was down by the Post and Preview, but now it's gone.

This is an old topic but a person does not need spellchecker if they access a forum etc via Google Chrome or Firefox, both browsers provide spellcheck.

If using Firefox you may need to install a dictionary add-on first. My browser did not include the dictionary add-on, even though I've been using and updating Firefox for over 10 years. Below is a link I found that may help

I just installed the dictionary add-on for Firefox. Let's check to see if spellchecker works.

Hmmmm... seems I get a squiggly line under the misspelled words, but no tool to offer corrected spelling. Anyone?

right click on the word and it should give you choices, the click on the correct one.

Okay, I'll ty that when I'm on my laptop. In the meantime, does anyone know how to "right click" using your smart phone? Inquiring minds wish to know

Grammarly is also a good spell check and grammar tool. Isn't always accurate with the grammar but usually a great help. The tool is for free. You could just add it as an extension to chrome so whenever you type something, it will read it and suggest the right words to use.

Tysting, tusting, twysting  Nope, it didn't work. I did the right-click thing, selected Spell Check, and got nothing. Guess we'll have to figure out something else.  :(
