More Software: MTSpeling

A while back, I complained about the lack of spell checker in Movable Type. I resolved to write one, and I think I’ve finally got it working. Readers can now check the spelling of comment previews on my weblog, and I can check the spelling of entry previews. Please let me know if there are any problems—if you can’t leave a comment, email me.

If you want to install this on your own Movable Type weblog, the MTSpeling module is available for download.

In other Movable Type news, a few weeks ago I installed Subscribe to Comments on my weblog, so you can sign up to receive email when comments are posted to an entry.

  1. This is a great plugin. I notice you’re using some javascript to jazz up the listing of incorrectly-spelled words. I’d appreciate knowing what javascript you used. Thanks, and keep up the good work!

  2. Just want to test this out.

    I’m a little confused about how, exactly, I’m supposed to set this up to check the spelling of my blog entries.

  3. Do u have a more a detailed step-by-step instructions for installing MTSpeling plugin so that spelling errors are highlighted in DRAFT preview? I’m using MT 2.64.

  4. Hi, Alexei: I have an odd problem. I’ve installed MTSpeling, but it won’t compile. MT-Medic informs me of this:

    ERROR “use” not allowed in expression at plugins/ line 12, at end of line

    ERROR BEGIN not safe after errors–compilation aborted at plugins/ line 13.

    WARNING Unquoted string “ispell” may clash with future reserved word at plugins/ line 8.

    Any ideas??
