vB Version: 3.5.3 Rating: (2 votes - 4.50 average) Installs: 262
Released: 14 Jul 2005 Last Update: 26 Dec 2005 Downloads: 131
Not Supported Template Edits Additional Files  

A 3.6 version by cynix2 is posted here:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=124578

What this does: vB Spell allows you to install a dictionary (English dictionary included) into your MysQL database, and provide a spell checking window that works in both of vB's editor modes, standard and WYSIWYG.

Background: Many of you liked PungoSpell, but didn't like recompiling PHP for it. Many liked PHPSpell, but didn't like the lack of WYSIWYG support and browser compatibility. vB Spell solved both problems, I hope, by combining the best of each.

Features:
o Supports most recent versions of browsers. Tested on IE, Firefox, Mozilla/Netsacpe, Opera and Konqueror (Konqueror implies Safari, but please confirm Mac folks)
o Learn Feature uses cookies, so it won't increase the database size
o Admin panel options
o Works in WYSIWYG toolbar, Standard toolbar, and no toolbar
o Can be added in full edit mode, quick edit and quick reply.
o Skips quoted text and other tags (PHP, code, etc.)
o Usergroup permisisons
o Template based interface, and uses your default style.
o Link buttons (Thesarus and Lookup) with links to Merriam Webster's online thesarus and dictionary links with the suggestion for misspelled words.

Installation:
Note: There is a french version of vB Spell, by cclaerhout posted here

1. Upload files and run vbspell_install.php
2. Go to AdminCP > vBulletin Options > vB Spell and edit your usergroup permisisons.
3. Template edits: (see alternative method, if you don't mind removing the ieSpell button made by vB : http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...9&postcount=48)

For each template where you would like to add a vB Spell, do the following edits (Example: editpost, newreply, newthread, etc.)

It shouldn't.

I have lost the vBSpell functionalities as before again -- an empty pop up form. An uninstall and reinstall fixes that without even needing the reload of IE. So more likely is a server side issue, or some java stuff which I don't know anything about. Also the line breaks are still removed by the spellcheck as soon as I click "Done". If no one else has this problem, then I will start to look for the reasons caused in my forums.

I scanned through but I don't think anyone mentioned this but when you preview a post and use the spell checker, it strips out the paragraph spacing and jumples up the thread.

O.k., I've just installed RC3 and tested it. I was unable to reproduce where it would strip any line breaks.

Would you recount the exact steps where this would happen, in which template, edit or new thread/reply, and what mode, WYSIWYG, or standard, etc.

IE, vBulletin RC3, Standard Editor, "post reply" or "post new thread".

When your done with your post (that contains some paragraph's), hit preview post and then do a spell check. When it's done spell checking, it will remove all paragraph's.

I have had this problem ever since I installed (RC2, RC1?). Many of my users also reported the same. See my post before this.

The error occurs as soon as I click DONE. The post text area gets rewritten, but all the paragraph marks were stripped.

I am using IE6 (SP2) with MS Java Virtual Machine.

I reported another bug before, but I will repeat here:

Every time I upgrade to a newer version of vB. The vbSpell pop up box will come up with empty contents. A trick to fix this is to unstall templates and reinstall templates using the bundled installation routine. What might have fixed the problem probably is: build_all_styles() function.

Try this file as a replacement to vbspell.js and let me know if it works (change the txt to js)
