    Hi All,

    I have added a spell check application. It seems to work well (on IE6 at least). Let me know if you have any problems with it. You will notice the new spell check button in the bottom right of the post box that you use to post new messages -as seen in the below screen shot:

    To edit the words follow the directions in the screenshot below:

    Hope it works well, I know I need it!!

    great, am seriously over-educated and can't spell worth a darn. Sat on a lot of dictoraryn in my time.

    It would appear to work, however it is lost with my typing of dictionary.

    Appears to be. I tried "colour" and "color" and it accepted them even though colour is misspelt (haha, ok, ok, just joking)

    I've also updated the instructions with a better screenshot.

    Since a lot of people like to use the "quick reply" form at the bottom of the forum posts, I added a button to spell check the quick replies. I couldn't figure out how to line it up with the other buttons, might try later..

    Good job, Sean. Now, when do you install the Stupid Check?

    I've forgotten to thank you for making it work with Opera.

    I usually identify the browser as MSIE 5.0 (and it did not work).
    I've tried identifying as Opera, and it worked.
