    A couple days ago my spell checker disappeared. How do I get it back? I also lost the grammar checker.

    I didn't know there was a spell checker. I'll wait to see if anyone chimes in here.

    Also a grammar checker. I thought they came with the new format. I know I didn't have a grammar checker before the forum changed.

    Spelling and grammar checkers are often a feature of the client-side software. What browser are you using?

    That is what I have, and I have spell checking enabled under Options>Advanced, but it isn't working here.

    I am using Firefox with this post and it is not working for me either. I have the advanced checkbox checked "Check my spelling as I type".

    I am using IE 10 now and it is correcting and or underlining misspelled words with the wavy red line.

    tried Internet Explorer this morning and it is working fine with spell checking. For some reason we are having the problem with Firefox.

    There's something special we had to do with FF, but I can't remember it.

    Found it...

    No Spell Check in FIreFox...

    To correct the problem right click on the text, choose Language and select English dictionary. It's that simple, i guess by default it is not chosen and IP.Board triggers some oddness with Firefox.
