Some of my site visitors have requested a spell checker for the forums and having googled I have not found one that works.
Anyone have a zipped copy or link to anywhere currently distributing a ported spell checker of the nuke forums?

Any help appreciated.

I had the same issue a few months ago from our members..I tried a couple, and they didn't work well, where slow, and not user friendly.
I solved the problem by recommending members download a free internet spell checker that the can use on all sites/ forms/mail etc on the internet.
The response from members was very positive. Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

It seems it doesnt liked 'patched'. Works fine on a virgin install but not with my patched site - well it was worth a try!

I have successfully integrated phpspell into my forums. I am using phpnuke 7.4 patched 3.0 with phpbb 2.0.17. The problem for me was the
Code:
$forum_admin = 1
found in spell_phpbb.php, I changed it to
Code:
define('FORUM_ADMIN',true);
and it works great.
I have been looking for a spellchecker for a while and most were not what I wanted. Phpspell is a definate bonus for my furoms(hehe). Hope that helps, oh and it says to delete the admin files after you install the dictionaries because they are not secured for phpnuke.

Well I'll be darned if that didnt fix her right up!!
I never even saw that reference tucked away around line 23 in the code as I was distracted with all the others at the top of that file trying to make sense of them - very nice catch, thanks grantb.

I have ported a Spell Checking Addon for the forums. This will currently only work for Platinum sites. Its should work for any version of Platinum, but its only been tested on my Platinum version 7.6.B.2. You will see it in action on these forums. Feel free to port it to standard Nuke if you want, it shouldn't be hard. To get it go here:

With all due respect...I am not a fan of spell checkers that rely on other sites for their dbs..the sites are sometimes down, or overloaded, often dont have a learning curve for individuals etc
A spell checker that calls from its own dictionaries is a far better option.
Their are open source db dictionaries avaliabe in many languages, thu these can be rather large and ppl may have problems loading into servers...a 'common english' db can be around 3.5 meg..english is by far the largest of all the db I have seen
Personally I think for a true nuke spell checker it should be a module that uses its own db on the server....this would also have opitions that the admin can choose the language(s) avalable ...maybe even hooking up to a translator db also.
Well thats the concept lol..as far as coding or knowing if its possible or what it would take....
I wouldnt have a clue lol

This isn't really any help for Firefox users but those that use Internet Explorer can benefit from this excellent free addon that provides spell checking on all text forms. I have been using it for over 6 months and have found it to be extremely handy. I know this isn't a bbtonuke addon, but I thought it was still worth mentioning here. I have recommended it to members on one of my web sites and they love it.

Yes I agree with you steptoe, which I plan on creating one that does just that. Altho your looking closer to 10-15 megs for a good dictionary database.

Big sigh of relief m8...
So my logic...what is needed is correct?
The size of the db...
I was playing with some a while back...never figured out what to do with them lol
They where not that big...
Just make sure u use an english one for it...not that funny spelling the Yanks use m8...Real english, not American lol
Dont u Americans get upset either...its not your fault you where born there
ROTFL oops OffTopic
O well need a bit of humour..blame it on Raven with his post above worship

The spell checker I'm using which is he BBtoNuke one has a DB size of around 19Meg - I see no reason why this one should not work with Platinum.
