Just needing to check this out...this morning I have done several posts, but on two where I used the spellchecker before posting, it didn't save the post. so will try it now.

Hmm Danny or TA, have just tried this out... my first post was to notify the problem, then I did a new post with some gobbledegook in it, selected spellchecker, then saved...the post errored and didn't post...not sure what's wrong

Janet, try re-booting your computer or using a different browser to sigh in.  No other way I can help I'm afraid and Danny seems to be away again...sorry.  By the way, my browser spell-checks for me, both Firefox and Chrome, can you opt in to this option on your browser?

I'll try that again!

Not a major problem TA, but tried again just now and the problem still exists, you'll just have to put up with my rubbish spelling and I'll not use spellchecker.

By the way, did you ever work in IT support - when I used to work in 'the office' - anytime you had a PC problem, the answer was always have you tried turning it off and back on again (re-boot) ??big_laugh big_laugh

Cheeky little blighter - no, I've never worked in IT, that's Danny's job!  big_laugh  If you like, I can edit your posts if I spot any mistakes.  Let me know.

I'll try that again!

Thanks TA

I'm sure it'll be fine, my spelling isn't too bad, it's just if I've had the odd glass or two of anything alcoholic my typing doesn't seem to match my brain.

Hattie, do you not have the facility turned on in Chrome? 

I'll try that again!

I know I am the sad chap who uses IE but the spell checker works OK in that it underlines misspelling but doesn't offer any corrections.

Not too worried but thought I would chuck my pennyworth in.

TA I know you hate IE, but it works for me !!

I have reached an age where my train of thought often leaves the station without me...
