    Is there any way to get this forum software to check my spelling as I am writing a post?

    Does your browser not do that for you?

    No, Iridium browser does not check spelling. It's feather light & super fast but frills are few.

    10Q for the suggestion. For some reason that app cannot be installed on Iridium.

    Too often I found myself drafting posts in a forum or even on twitter - and then: one false move with the mouse or on the keyboard - and suddenly I found myself somewhere else and all of the message in the edit window gone. :mad:

    But then I decided that I've had it all! Since then all of my posts are written in LibreOffice (with multi-language spell-checker) or in a professional editor that also has this capacity. And only in the end I will paste those drafts into the edit-window and send them off. Just my 2 cents.
