Checks for spelling errors when editing content Type of page »  Feature page


This has been removed as it's handled by the browsers nowadays... You can add grammar checking to Firefox with http://www.afterthedeadline.com/

We need to deal with several languages (IE and Firefox propose spellchecker).

This feature is usefull when searching. It should be used in google-like way.

For enchancing perfomance, spellcheking dictionaries have to be imported into separated table in the Tiki database.

  • We should make more available and dogfood this.
  • Need ability to add new words to the dictionary.
  • Currently the spellchecker flags capitization as a spelling error.
    For example, if foo is in the dictionary, Foo is shown as a misspelling. IMHO, this is wrong.

With browsers/browser plugins offering spell checking, is this a high priority?

  • Maybe not high, but need a way to ensure the site-specific word spellings are maintained (by the site — not by the end-user).

(look up a word or a phrase in an online resource such as Wikipedia, Wiktionary or OmegaWiki.)

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
