Dear all

We are using WordPress 4.0.1 and we'd like to spell check WP_Editor generated text areas.

Does anyone have a recommendation for the best plug-in to use?

BTW - we've found found several that work with standard WP text areas - but not ones generated using the WP_Editor function.

Cheers
Ed

Hello Ted,

You should try: https://wordpress.org/plugins/tinymce-spellcheck/screenshots/

It support spell checking in Visual Editor.

Thanks
Edwin.

Hi Edwin

Thanks for your reply. We have tried TinyMCE, however we are using the WP_Editor function in custom post types and although the spell check button is visible, when it is clicked nothing happens.

Any ideas why this is or an alternative plug-in we could try?

Thanks
Ed

Hi Edwin

That's what I mentioned in my previous post - the button works fine for the standard WordPress editor but not for text areas generated by WP_Editor function in custom post types. The button appears (like in your screen shot) but nothing happens when we click it.

Cheers

You can also try installing Jetpack.  One of the included modules is spelling and grammar checking of content in the Editor.

Hi Jason - we had considered installing Jetpack but that installs a lot of other stuff that we don't really want / need.

BTW - we found that by enabling + hiding a standard WP text area as well as our function generated version - that the TinyMCE spell checker worked - so that's what we've gone with!

Jetpack does install a lot of stuff but you can now enable/disable each thing in it.
