    Question about spell check availability

    Is there a spell check option available when creating a post ? If so how do I activate and use it?

    For me 'Spell Check' is taken care of by my browser which is Firefox 46.0.1 today.

    John will have to answer whether or not vBulletin (the forum software) offers spell check. Like dV8r, I use Firefox as my browser and it has spell check built in.

    I've run the forum software on a couple of different browsers, and spell check seems to be active in both of them. I'm not sure if that is due to the browser, or the forum software. When I am typing, mis-spelled words have a red squiggly underline. Then I just right click that word and a list of correctly spelled options appear in the menu.

    This works in both Firefox and Google Chrome. Not sure about Internet Explorer, I never use it.
