Support » Fixing WordPress » Spell Check throwing error

  • Hi all,

    I’m getting a error when trying to use the spell check feature in wordpress’s admin panel. Basically, if I’m using the wysiwyg editor and trying to spell check a post, upon clicking the spell check button an error is displayed in the center of the page which states: “Error response: ” and then proceeds to spit out the entire source code of the post page, inside the error frame. This includes everything from the opening DOCTYPE tag to the closing </html>. I’m using the latest version of wordpress (2.9.1). If anyone can shed some light as to what might be wrong I would appreciate the help! Thanks!

    – Use this spell checking plugin:

    Hey Shane,

    – I am already using the latest version of wordpress (2.9.1)

    – I have disabled all plugins and still have the issue

    – Your recommended plugin is almost 5 years and I’m not sure it would work with the latest version of wordpress.

    I’m just looking for the default, built-in, spell checker to function normally. If you or anybody else has a fix or suggestions as to why the default spell checker is throwing an error (with the source of the post page as the error message) inside the admin panel, I would appreciate the help!
