How do you add a spell check to the Yabb forum? That's always my biggest complaint - no spell cheker ...


You don't state what version of YaBB you are using .....

For Y2.2.2 or Y2.2.3 Use Jet Li's MOD http://www.boardmod.org/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=newsy22;action=display;num=1212737074

In Y2.3 it is built in.

Hi John,

Can I therefore ask if this is easy to do for a person with limit computer skills?

Building a toolbar is relatively easy, although time consuming.  A basic toolbar is very easy, a more complex toolbar can be a bit harder.

Many toolbars are coded by hand.  I use a toolbar publishing platform called Conduit.  Conduit uses a web based wizard to create a new toolbar, and a web based editor to fine tune & maintain it... point, click, copy, paste, save, etc. (its very easy to use).  Best of all... it's free.

The RSS news feeds are a toolbar component.  Add it, add the feed names & URLs and click Save.  That's it.  For your forum users you can also add a spell check that will work on your YaBB forum.

I'm a regular on the Conduit Community Forum too.

Just down loaded the toolbar and my first thoughts are that it looks pretty good. I'll have a proper look round later.

My second thought is that I should offer a similar thing to members of my forum, particularly if they can see at a glance which boards have had a response! Can I therefore ask if this is easy to do for a person with limit computer skills?

Cheers

John
