One thing that slightly annoys me when I am typing a message to submit to Geekzone forums is that Firefoxes inbuilt spellchecker does not work. Why is that?
I see it works in the quick reply but not in the full editor.
Any way to get it enabled and if not how about a spellchecker built into the forum editor?
Someone with spelling & typing as bad as me needs it desperately.

You won't see Firefox/Chrome/Safari's spellchecker working in RTE (Rich Text Editor) as it is a layer of iFrame that render out in HTML format from a hidden textarea which actually holds the HTML markup.

In short, you're out of luck mate.

Actually in Chrome the built-in spell checker does work.  This is why I love Chrome!

Behodar: Working in both with Safari.


Both with Chrome too, think it's definitely a Firefox only issue

works in both with firefox, you just have to turn it on if you use compose reply.




Common sense is not as common as you think.

what do you mean "turn it on"?
I have the firefox spellcheck in pretty much everything except the rick text editor for the geekzone forum.

Oh - I got it. If you right click from within the rich text editor there is an option to "check spelling". It just doesn't load automatically like it does in other forums / web pages etc.

Using Firefox when I right click the Quick Reply text box Check Spelling is always ticked. When I right click the Compose Reply text box Check Spelling is always unticked.

If Quick Reply defaults to ticked I don't see why Compose Reply can't do the same.

I have to remember to "right click and tick" every time I do a non-quick reply if I want to check the spelling.

GZ uses the TinyMCE editor for compose reply, apparently there is a config setting (which defaults to off) to toggle the Firefox/Gekco spellchcker

The supreme bean will need to change the TinyMCE config/theme server side.
