    spch.js

    Just to let you know, Eileen, the spch.js file is now being loaded from the proper server.

    Now for the big question: what does it do?[img]/w3timages/icons/alien.gif[/img]

    It calls the external spellchecker.com. Have you tried that yet?

    Re: spch.js

    Now that it has been brought up, I keep forgetting to make comment. I started using the SpellChecker.net a while back, I now want to know why I did NOT start using it sooner. I am the worlds worst speller and can not survive without a spell checker and a dictionary (hardcopy). This is a great tool that you have provided us.
    Thanks,

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Agreed. Just keep finding more good design in the board.

    Re: spch.js

    I played around with the external spell checker today, and have a 2 comments:

    1) It didn't work correctly for me... never displayed any of my text. Perhaps my security settings are too tight for it.

    2) Shouldn't spch.js be loaded when the SpellChecker button is pressed? Or are you just loading it ahead of time for caching purposes?

    Hi ril.

    I have used both "Check Spelling" and "SpellChecker.Net".

    I found SpellChecker to give more control and info than the Check Spelling button.

    I also just found that both buttons appear to be momentarily broken.

    Eg trys is incorrect, it should be tries. But it is not highlighted by Check Spelling.

    Ooops. Now Check is working but the site is not. Aaargh.

    Ok. Looks like an itermitent problem. I will post it as a problem. Cause it really did work for me before.

    Re: spch.js

    I've noticed that spch.js is even called when looking at the Main Index and sub indexes. It probably doesn't need to be loaded then.

    Also, within the actual forums, shouldn't spch.js be loaded when the SpellChecker button is pressed? Or are you just loading it ahead of time for caching purposes?

    Re: spch.js

    Your endless fascination with the spellchecker is interesting but you have it slightly wrong. The Javascript function which calls the external spellchecker lives in spch.js and this is loaded in the header so that it is readily available to all the 8 pages that use the function. The actual function itself is only triggered when the spellchecker.net button is pressed.

    Re: spch.js

    Makes sense... but why is it loaded on the index pages as well?

    Re: spch.js

    Because it's in the Lounge header file - that's the stuff you see at the top of every page. Now could we move on?

    No sweat, Robert. It *is* a fascinating little utility and if you are wanting to try it out on your own site you can find out more about it here.
