I've got so used to this on other places and am a 'tad' lost without it. It's not that my spelling is bad, but often one makes silly mistakes with out noticing. Nice to have a little arning? See, I missed my 'w'.

Oh Spook I hear you!  I kept looking for it...for the little red and green lines at least to tell me I had a fragmented sentence, and certainly to tell me if all my words were spelled right :)

Hi Kevin,

Most browsers have spell checker add-ons available for free install.

Cheers,

Well I'm now using Firefox 4 and cain't seem to find it? I'm a stubborn old goat and still think it should be an option. Surely it will not be to hard to just add it to what you have already got? Laughing

Actually, a spellchecker is already integrated with FF. If you go to

Tools > Options > Advanced 

and look in the box for Browsing: select Check my spelling as I type

The process may be slightly different for other browsers, but I think most of them have some form of this feature.

I'm not sure how hard or easy it would be to integrate a separate spellchecker on Wizzley.But generally, more code often means a decrease in performance (speed).

I'm a Chrome user, and my browser has spell check enabled. But it doesn't work inside the Wizzley edit screens. Weird. It works at Hubpages, Squidoo, my blogs, etc. Just doesn't like Wizzley. Wonder why?

My spell check works inside the heading areas of the modules just not inside the modules themselves. Weird.

Editet with the latest info:

We're working some more on it, Jimmie. Maybe there is something in our code that doesn't fit right with Chrome...Simon sayz, he'll work on it as soon as he can.

Very pleased to hear that chefkeem as I have the same problems as Jimmie. More importantly it's nice to know that all you people care.

Hmm, spell checking with Chrome is really strange: For some users it works perfectly, for some it simply does not :-/ We'll try to look into it and find a difference to Squidoo and HubPages.

However, mainly it's a Chrome bug, which is known to Google for ages now. I'm also desperately waiting for them to correct it, since I love Chrome and can't use it for that :-P
