  • Was writing a short blog post on new install of v3.2.1 and when I ran spell checker is shows WordPress as being mis-spelled.

    You might want to add it to the default library!

    Thanks

    Spellchecker in After the Deadline or your browser’s?

    What is “After the Deadline”?

    What I mean is when you go to add a new post to WordPress v3.2.1 if you type WordPress is shows it as being spelled wrong in the editor window.

    After the Deadline is a spell check plugin for WordPress.

    Capitalizing the “w” and the “p” … WordPress… is working okay for me in 3.2.1 and 3.3, in both HTML and visual modes. However, any other variation indicates a misspelling.

    No I do not have any plugins at all, so I am talking default WP editor.

    As I type, it shows WordPress as ok, but other variations have squiggly line underneath (so this is auto-type as you go spellcheck?).

    BUT if I actually click on the SpellCheck button, then WordPress will also have squiggly line underneath, and shows as incorrect.

    That’s your browser, man, NOT WordPress. 🙂 Did you know that Firefox, Chrome and Safari all check your spelling? You just need to add the word in.

    No, it’s when I click on the SpellCheck button in the WordPress editor window… that is when it shows up as incorrect.

    Ah, okay.

    That’s actually run by TinyMCE so I don’t know if it can be easily fixed. I’ll check trac.

    Ok thanks

    Yup, I can’t replicate this either, 3.2.1 and 3.3

    With after the deadleine, and on bare installs.

    WordPress with capital W and P work fine for me
