    I have just always found it strange that the WordPress spellchecker says “WordPress” is not a word.

    Doesn’t anyone else find this quite annoying and somewhat strange?

    Have you tried “WordPress” – with “P” capitalized?

    Yep. It still underlines it.

    The built-in WordPress spell checker is the TinyMCE spell checker. One can configure the TinyMCE spell checker to talk to several spell checker libraries ASpell, HunSpell, and the Google Spell checker service. The dictionaries with these options are not with the times.

    If you like, try After the Deadline. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/after-the-deadline/

    It’s a replacement for the WordPress spell checker. We use it on WordPress.com and it works fine there.

    1. It has a modern dictionary that includes words like WordPress.
    2. You can permanently ignore any error to keep it from showing again.
    3. It also finds misused words (its/it’s)
    4. It checks your grammar

    Also it works in both the visual and HTML editors.
