Default Forum Spell Checking

Am I the only one who dislikes the forum spell checker using American spellings?

Always leaves me feeling a little off "color"

Hi Stewart,

I know exactly what you mean, and have asked Peter to see if there's anything he can do behind the scenes to organiSe (with an S) Australian spell-checking for us.

Fingers crossed!
Jayne

Oxford English would have it that "ize" is actually the correct spelling, although "ise" is actually just as common.

Murky world this spelling. My 6 year old keeps telling me that English is stupid. It's hard to disagree with her.

Hi Stewart,
Just having a look into this and hunting around VB settings, but I'm wondering if the forum checker might actually be within the browser rather than within vBulletin (especially if it is checking as you type)? For example I use Chrome and if I mistype a word I get a red squiggly line under it as I type, if I then right click the word I can change the settings to Australian English. Here's a forum thread I stumbled across talking about this. But I must admit I'm definitely no expert in this area so you or others may be able to shed some more light on this?
Cheers
Peter

Thanks Peter. I'd missed that.

Yeah...... it's generally browser based. Plus, I prefer American spelling anyway, it's my favorite.

I use Firefox, and it spell checks for me on every site except for this one. That's why all of my posts say they have been edited at the bottom. I read over them a few minutes later and think "oh, dear!"

I'm the same as Blue Penguin... wasn't until I saw this thread initially that I even realised some people had a spell checker running on FS!
