Feature Sugestion

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if I should be suggesting this here or maybe send this to Smf.

Well recently I have been working with Ajax and ran into an issue when posting anything with the script tag.

I completly understand why this has been blocked but there is a workaround. I think that something like what devshed has would be perfect. They have a [nobbc][highlight=html4strict][/nobbc] tag. This allows you to post code that contains the script tag.

Also, this may be just wishful thinking on my part, but a spell checker would be great. I have some of the worst spelling.. It is rather funny. I can do complicated mathmatical caluations in my head but I can hardly spell anything that has more then four letters.

Thanks,
Tom

I don't think you understand the IPS.  You should really read up on it.  I will not work on a way around it.  Period.  End of story.

And a spell checker would be an SMF addition.  I'm not going to add that as a hack.

LOL... I guess that I should have researched that before hand.

@ober

Why are you so hostile requarding this??

EDIT: I only made a suggestion. It is not like I said that you have to do it OR else..lol.

I'm not hostile about anything.  If anything I'm tired of hearing about the IPS.  It is the bain of my existence and I'm sick of defending it, but it's not my choice.

... and how do we go about doing that?

Check in phpinfo to see if the server has spellcheck support installed.  Look for this line [tt]PSpell Support enabled[/tt].  If it's enabled go to Admin > Posts and Topics > Enable Spell Checking

Unless this site is on a dedicated box you are going to have to ask the host to install it.  This is a pain in the --- getting hosts to do changes like this one. :(

Not when you know the host almost personally ;)

That makes sense :P.  One thing though.  When they install aspell libraries make sure to install the dictionary also.  People forget to do that :P.

I'm sure he can handle it, but I'll remind him.

I hope there's an option for us to disable this spell-checker when we post... I hate spell checkers.

For the spell check there is a button right next to the preview button.  It's not shown when the spell check is disabled.

I support it a 100%!!! I can't count the times I've edited a post because of spelling mistakes. Sometimes I get fed up and don't bother, but generally I do try to pay attention to spelling. I'm not a native speaker (nor writer  :P), so it takes a little more effort. A spell checker would be absolutely great. It also might improve the readability of some people's posts.

I'm a bit curious as to how expanding the dictionary would work though...
