A WordPress update took place yesterday, an update that removed the spellchecker.
I found the spellchecker quite useful to flag up my typos (I always have typos) I wasn’t too concerned about my actual spelling except for a couple of words that I always misspell despite being aware of the correct spelling!
I contacted WordPress and asked why it had been removed.
The conversation went like this
WordPress reply: Most web browsers these days have built in spell checkers, we found the inclusion of proofreading redundant.
ME: You are not the end user! I am not using a Web browser I am using the App! To not include a spellchecker in a publishing word processor is ludicrous, it’s a step backwards, hardly forward thinking!
WordPress reply: We have had users request that we bring back the proofreading functionality to the editor. I’ve gone ahead and added you to the list of users that have requested it. I can’t say for certain if it will return, but if there is enough interest in doing so, our developers will certainly consider it!
May I ask that each of us offers our support to those bloggers who have asked for the return of the proofreading facility.
Please Lodge a request to have it re-instated to WordPress Support then scroll down to GET HELP .
I would love to hear your opinion; Comments are enabled on this post.
A Second Issue: Immediately after yesterday’s updates, I uploaded a graphic to my site Nansfarm and after publication it was reported to me that the graphic appeared jumbled, see the screenshot below. I have replaced the graphic with a similar one that was already in the media file. The WP conversation on this one is ongoing!
Has anyone else had a similar problem following the latest update?
In the meantime Tony From the Keyboard of Tony gave me this link Open Live Writer for your PC. From here you can write your post, insert graphics and spell check, plus it will drop your post straight into WordPress as a draft. It’s FREE and is simple to use.
Many thanks, Sue.
