vB Version: 2.3.x Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 18
Released: 11 Jun 2003 Last Update: Never Downloads: 1
Not Supported Is in Beta Stage  

Not too sure if this is where its meant to go but if it should be moved please move it.

I have been trying to find a simple spell checker to work on my forums for a while -
Eventually i found this one http://www.master-technology.com/phpbb/ which was working with phpbb.
As i have no idea how to code anything - at all!!! I asked one of their support teams to help and they gave me the answers.
So I can't take any of the credit for it, and thank them for helping me out.
At present it doesn't support vbulletin but since talkin to them they are going to be doing so in the near future.

Here is the zip file:

Unzip them all to a folder on your server called "Spelling" or the spellchecker don't work.

The instructions are included in the zip as well.

Does this force the spell check on the user or can he/she click a link to use it if they want to? there are some spellings that the user might not want changed automatically.

No it doesn't force a spell change on them - it highlights spelling mistakes and gives you an option of - however many you choose - so many words which you can change it too.
If it is a word you use a lot - and you know ppl will understand such as vbulletin there is an "learn" option - and in the spell_admin.php there is an add option to add more words.

there is a working version on my board.

I've made a slight change to integrate the spell check button better:

<script language='javascript' src='spelling/spellmessage.js'></script>
<input type="button" class="bgclass" value="Spell Check" onclick="openspell();">
This works EXCELLENTLY!

Check http://www.pcreview.co.uk for another demo

This is what I am getting when I run the spell_admin.php file:

Warning: main(spell_MySQL.php) [function.main]: failed to create stream: No such file or directory in /xxxx/xxxx/xxxxxx_xxxx/forum/spelling/spell_config.php on line 166

Warning: main() [function.main]: Failed opening 'spell_MySQL.php' for inclusion (include_path='') in /xxxx/xxxx/xxxxxx_xxxx/forum/spelling/spell_config.php on line 166
You must choose a Database Type in the Spell Configuration file.
And yes, I have set the DB type to MySQL. Any ideas what I am missing or doing wrong?

did you add your db information to the spell_config.php?

Also i think i had this issue the first time i ran it - i changed the
spell_config to the following:

In spell_config.php set:
$Spell_Config["DB_Type"] = "pspell";

then put the attached file into your admin folder and run it.

I then had to change it back to:

In spell_config.php set:
$Spell_Config["DB_Type"] = "MySQL";

and it worked.

Ok if you get that error change the spell_config.php back to MySQL and run the admin_spellcheck.php again and it should work.

did you see if the table is created in your db? it should make the table spelling_words?
apart from that i have no idea - it is working fine on mine and the only difference is that i have set it too forums/spelling rather than forum/spelling
but it shouldnt make much difference. Did you change any of the other files? and you did change the permissions to 755
I spoke to their support team and they said that they are planning on releasing a proper patch for vbulletin in the near future.

I have attached a clean spell_config.php to see if that makes any difference

The directory permissions are set to 755, but all file permissions are still at 644. No, there is no spelling_words table. And I didn't change any other files. When they release an update for vBulletin, please let me know. Until then, I'm out of luck.

Work Great

But not without a fight. got the message
You must choose a Database Type in the Spell Configuration file.
, I had entered the database even tried the full path. That wasn't the problem when I used the MySQL admin tools found that I had a default username entered as "root" no password but a user. Added then did the change from MySQL to pspell and back and it works.

Thanks!

Just want to know if I can remove the Learn button. Want to stop anyone from entering mis-spelled words.
