After some pretty interesting lessons in Perl programming today, I finally managed to install a spell checker. It should be available in all posting modes including private messaging and quick replies. Since we are still in a beta testing mode, please let me know if you have any problems. Thanks!

It took Chris a good day to get the Spell Checker working as it was not written for VBBS or PHP.

This spell check works great! And the best part is it does not cost us $150 for every 100,000 searches (or every 6 months whichever comes first)

It's just another great feature here on DBStalk.COM

That's one of the great things about this spell check. It all runs completely from our own server. No extra costs required.

So far it seems to be working well. Thanks everyone for your support.

Yeah James I have seen that as well, The spell check works off a unix backdoor, I don't know if we can edit the word file or not.

The thing to remember is you know its spelled correctly, so make no corrections to that word. :)

I just went into the Perl code and found the "ignore words" list. I've already input a few words like DirecTv and such. Please list any words that you find that should be on the ignore list here. Thanks!
