Often we all make little typos, mistakes, or we simply don't remember the spelling of things, why not make a spell checker basic widget or tool so we can check out our spelling mistakes?
Tell me if this already exists.

Hi Sajid-M

In some browsers such as Safari or Google Chrome spell checking is included. So if you use those browsers (There are probably more, I just can't think of them) then whenever you type something wrong in Yola or anywhere, it puts a red line underneath, and comes up with options to change it.

Hope that helps,

Amar

Good point, but this spell checker doesn't include grammatical mistakes, or little parts like a new sentence without a space after the previous full stop. I want this new spell checker to be like the one on Microsoft word, where you can change them on a separate tool, as sometimes little red lines are missed out.

Hello Sajid-M,

You can always write your blurb in MS Word, use the Spell checker and Grammar checker on MS. Once the edits have been made, you can then copy the blurb into Notepad. Then, copy from Notepad and paste into your Sitebuilder.

There may be an add-on for Grammar checks that you can use to assist with this. I suggest searching on Google for this.

Hi,

I searched around and found a Google Chrome extension which extends the functionality of the default spell checker built into it. To download, just visit here whilst in Google Chrome and your done!

Apparently there might be some problems with that program if your red/green colour blind, but that shouldn't matter that much.

Yes all these may work, but a direct spell checker on Yola site builder would be more helpful. I could write in word then copy down to sitebuilder, but that would take longer than just a simple spell checker, and a download wouldn't be too hard, but what about others who haven't seen this, or can't download it?

Yes, it would be nice to have a full spell checker built into the sitebuilder. It would be probably much easier to use because Yola always makes great UI for there features.

But I guess we'll just have to stick with what we've got now, because theres not enough demand for it yet. But I don't think it would be that hard to implement...

Kind Regards,
Amar
