Yes.  It would be a real shame to lose this feature.  I know the users on our forum love it.  Hopefully, it was only an oversight when they moved things around.

it will but at the same time it is also one of the parts of yabb I don't use  Roll Eyes@me

Orangoo is now hosting their own spell proxy so we should be good.

i know this may be a bit cheeky but has he got a update for it?  Wink


Edited:
we may want to post in YaBB News and Announcements about the spellcheck update as well.

And we have a solution! (The writer got back to me.)

in SpellChecker.pl find
Code
Select All
$url = "https://www.google.com/tbproxy/spell?$ENV{QUERY_STRING}";
 



replace with
Code
Select All
$url = "http://orangoo.com/newnox?lang=?$ENV{QUERY_STRING}";
 



Orangoo is now hosting their own spell proxy so we should be good.

BTW, this is the guy wrote the code we use for GrayBox.

Looks like it's not going to work anymore. And a paid solution simply isn't going to fly.

Unfortunately, it's not Google but Googie by Orangoo Labs (aka amix) (and the link to the license in the YaBB Admin center is bad.)

I just dropped a note to amix and hopefully this will either get fixed or he'll tell me the program is dead.

Hi Dandello:  Is there an email address to let google know they have issues with the server for google spell.  It may be a bit premature to eliminate the spelling module from Yabb.  It will be a while before everyone who uses IE to ( and there is a lot) upgrade to IE 10.  If they only release this browser for Windows 8 then it will be much longer.  What the hell were they thinking when they released that piece of technological garbage.   Angry Angry  My Rant for the day.  Grin  Bruce

Wow! Internet Explorer 10 isn't kidding around with its spell check. For many words it auto-corrects misspellings. If you type a word very badly, it will mark it with a red squiggly line underneath the misspelled word so that you can right-click a correction.

Also, as John pointed out, the default setting is to have Internet Explorer update its software automatically.

Speaking of automated updates, another forum software pretty much does the same thing. It's amazing! When I logged into that forum, I was notified that an update was available, and with one click, presto, the forum software updated itself.

Hopefully, one day YaBB will have a one-click solution to automatically update its software. Pretty please!  Cool

But I digress. Cheesy

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

Note: This forum doesn't allow for us to freely edit our posts or topics to make corrections as needed, so please remember to look for subsequent posts if you see any mistakes or outdated information. Sorry for the inconvenience.

It was throwing the same error on its own demo site this  morning.

There have been calls to remove GoogieSpell from YaBB as most browsers have built in spell-checks (MSIE was the one hold-out). If this goes on for very long, yanking it out of YaBB might not be a bad idea.
