It's in now.

I haven't tested it or set up a custom word list for the site yet.

Don't bitch, it's better than nothing.

That's pretty cool. I wasn't expecting the popup window thingy, and then BAM! there it is.

Thanks for all the hard work, Guru!

That reminds me - if you find that your popup stopper is stopping that popup

1) let us know about it
2) maybe enable wienerboard.com for popups maybe
3) or don't ever use it, we won't mind (unless you're one of the people that REALLY NEEDS TO SPELLCHECK)

Actually, the hard work was completely wasted. I gave up on the way that I had been working this at around 11pm last night and went a completely different route. This spell checker uses the same back-end component (GNU Aspell) but a completely different front end approach.

I prefer this one.

I didn't write the javascript pop-up window. That's all part of Speller Pages. Here's a handy link if you are interested. http://www.hotscripts.com/Detailed/25134.html .

I still need to make sure that linking to this doesn't put the entire board code under the GPL - if it does, I probably have to pull the spell checker since we don't own 100% of the board code.

//edit:


    These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
    identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
    and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
    themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
    sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
    distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
    on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
    this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
    entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.

    Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
    your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
    exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
    collective works based on the Program.

    In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
    with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
    a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
    the scope of this License.


Well, I think that means that it only applies to the portion of the code directly involved with spell checking, and not to any pages that call the spell checker. That's how I'm reading it, anyway. I'll be glad to remove it if there is a different meaning that I'm not getting.

Here's the thing though - while it says that it is GPL on the hostscripts site, the download I got from Sourceforge has no license info at all, nor does Sourceforge say what license it is under. I'm wondering if this is actually even GPLd. It may just be free code (which would also be pretty cool).

Does the spell checker check the subject field for new topics or does it only scan the body of the message?

Subject and Message body, or at least it did when I set it up. Let me know if you see otherwise.

My attempt to use spell check was stopped by 12 ghosts. I just have to hit ctrl when I click, but there you go.

The checker is great & I know it would be a pain to set up a total custom word list, but as a start would it be tough to add all of the registered usernames to the dictionary...? :-)

Hey, considering just days before doing this I swore that I would never finish it, you should be grateful...

Just messing with you. I'm planning on doing this - of course I've been planning on implementing the spell checker for over a year

Well, I never lose my posts, and I also never use IE. HMMMMMMMMM. (I always ask about the cache settings here, usually) I promise to implement the buddy feature in 2005 (and most likely, during my mandatory days off next week)
