WordPress Toolbar: Spellchecker
Working with WordPress tips
Although the spellchecker included with the WordPress visual editor is fairly basic, it has some nice features, particularly the choice of languages to check. Once you click the “ABC” spellchecker button, any misspelled or unidentified words will appear underlined in red. Click on an underlined word and several alternate spellings will appear in a list, but you won’t always find what you want, as you’ll see in our sample image below. Oddly, the name “WordPress” is not recognized—go figure! The spellchecker also includes eleven languages that it can check: English, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.
