Worked Great for me

I emailed the support team about 1 small bug I found, and they fixed it immediately, thanked me, and followed up. Couldn’t be happier. I didn’t realize how many spelling mistakes my site had till I ran these scans. Thanks!!

Finally a Spell Checker Plugin That Works

I have been looking for a plugin that could spellcheck an entire website for common misspellings and this plugin does just that. You can download the trial version to test it out on your site for page content and post titles. If you want more features, then you should buy the pro version.

Doesn’t work

Loaded it on my staging site and let it "process" looking for spelling errors for over an hour and nothing ever happened. Now when I try to deactivate and delete it won't let me. Have tried to do both numerous times and it just stays in place. Terrible experience

Has potential but too many problems

Too many things didn't work or had bugs. I was using it on a development site, which perhaps caused some of the issues, but that would be a common use case. Final straw was the additional html tags injected in my original content. I really wanted this to work as it has great potential.

Nuked my site

I installed this as I wanted to ensure that my spelling was up to scratch on the content I published but this plugin ended up Error 500 my site. Had to contact my hosting provider to get them to manually remove it as I couldn't access my site nor control panel at all.
