Pete-zza,
One suggestion to solve your spelling woes - copy and paste your message into your favorite word processor, spell check, copy, paste into your post reply. Or alternatively, compose the post in your favorite word processor and then move it the forum.

pftaylor.

Thanks for the tips.  Although my spelling is generally pretty good, I was "trained" in the corporate world to produce documents that were just about perfect, or risk having them bounced back by bosses who, in turn, have to turn in "perfect' documents to their bosses, and so on up the line.  Of your two choices, I like the second one but for a different reason.  If you screw up or something else happens and you lose your text before it is posted, you won't lose the text altogether because you still have it in your word processing software.

This new forum software has a spellcheck feature, however it's not working properly at the moment and I have it turned off. I am working with my hosting provider to get it working.  :)

 Glad to know you're working on it.

I hit the spellcheck button and lost my post completely.

Well, the post that you replied to was a year old... and as far as I know the spell-check is working fine now. Anyone else having problems?

Just a thought... the spell-check opens another window (a pop-up window)... it's possible that you might have a pop-up blocker running which will prevent the window from opening.

Try this: Hold down the left-most "CTRL" key and click the spell-check button (keep the CTRL key pressed down while you click)... that should override any pop-up blocker that may be running. If that works, then you need to disable your pop-up blocker for this site.

Thanks! That seemed to do the trick.  :D
I have a new ISP and didn't think about the pop-up blocker.

I downloaded ieSpell for use on some other forums and it works well.  I highlight what I have typed, right click and select spell-check.  It works like a charm and allows you to build personal dictionaries.

I don't think I can post a link yet, but if you Google ieSpell you will find it.

Free yourself from ie; firefox is free and checks spelling on the fly!
