Spelling mod?

Post by jsalk »

I frequenty use a site based on VBulletin and it has a spelling module that is very nice. Is there anything like this for phpBB?

There is a MOD over on the main phpBB site called Spelling Cow. They're switching servers now, so I can't give you the exact link.

Also there are spellcheck extensions available for firefox, or ieSpell for IE.

lol. I think there is an actual MOD that is designed specifically for phpBB. I was referring to the link to the MOD and its topic.

Spelling Cow is designed for anything... it just so happens to support phpBB "specifically" (or that's where it gets its most hits I imagine).

ok, I use the firefox extension, so I'm not familiar with the exact details. I was just offering it as an alternative.

Natan -

Thanks. I actually downloaded Spelling Cow just moments before I saw your reply.

Spelling cow has a login attached to it. So if there is an alternative for phpBB, I would certainly be interested as well.

But for now, Spelling Cow is the only one I have found.

Thanks again.

This one is MUCH better than spelling cow and has no ads. You can test it on my site if you like.
