Worst Plugin Ever
By , for WP 3.9.1

This screwed up all the code as well as other plugins. It screwed up spacing with a <span> tag listed every other word for nonexistent errors. AVOID THIS PLUGIN!

Hi Matthew,
thanks a lot for making this plugin available, because as you can see English is not my mother tongue and yet an need to write in it. So, thanks a lot for this plugin. I hope my blog will have less spelling errors from now on and less than this review ;)

[ link redacted, please do not post links in reviews ]

So thanks again!

Idea is good, but WP 3.9 breaks it
By ,

Great to have a non-Jetpack spellchecker and the basic functionality works great. However since 3.9, the spellchecker leaves all kinds of < span class="hiddenSpellError" > references in the HTML, the moment you switch it on; bloating the code, breaking shortcodes and embeds and much more.

Therefore currently unusable unless you remove all of these Spans manually, which is a ton of work as all unknown words are marked as well.

Great!!! And Dead!!

The plugin stopped working properly some time ago with important erros. It breaks all shortcodes, oEmbed and leave your content full os <span> elements. The problem was posted in the support forum but there is no reply from the author. See https://wordpress.org/support/topic/since-wp-v39-span-classes-are-added-in-the-code

This plugin is fantastic!

Works great and replaces the now obsolete After the Deadline plugin, which has been merged with the controversial Jetpack plugin.

Muro rhymes with hero ;)

When the Tiny MCE spell check feature stopped working in WordPress, it was looking like we were going to have to install Jetpack to get it working again. Nothing against Jetpack personally, but it's kind of a big plugin and we had concerns about how resource intensive it might be.

Then I stumbled across Mr. Muro's TinyMCE Spellcheck plugin, which was a fork of the original "After The Deadline" plugin . . . and it worked like a charm. Thank you!

Stellar plugin
By , for WP 3.6

Very important plugin. WordPress 3.6 doesn't have spellcheck anymore making this a must, specifically for multiple author sites.

I hope that this will continue to be developed and maintained.

Does what it says!
By Plugin Author, for WP 3.6

I have a site that posts a ton of content with a lot of writers and the editors depended on the spellcheck feature for quality control. This plugin allows me to add that feature back to WordPress without having to install Jetpack just for this one thing.
