Spellcheck in WordPress

If you copy and paste your content from Microsoft Word or a similar program, you will be using the spellcheck features of those programs. Spellchecking your text when editing directly into your WordPress Posts/Pages is not asnice.

Showing miss-spelt words when editing WordPress documents is something that is controlled by the browser you are using. You can modify how spellcheck in WordPress is handled in your browser. I have included the 2 most common browsers here but others should work in a similar manner. Like our Facebook page for more tips
