Did hubpages put a spell checker in the forums? I never had it available before but now I do!
You don't have it when your writing something. Try spelling wrong and see if it puts a red line under the word.
A great addition for me. My thinking and writing don't always coincide!
It automatically shows up for me as red, if I make a spelling error. Has been doing this forever, though. I think it's a feature of Google Chrome or something on my computer. Firefox does this, too.
Did you recently switch browsers? That could be the reason why the little red lines are appearing.
See how great it wercks? <---
Yes...very interesting, lol. I use Firefox, but careful typing helps me even more. I think I have more typos than real spelling mistakes, lol.
Many browsers come with a built in spell checker much like Windows, so that as soon as a spelling error is detected, the red line appears under the mis-spelt word. in fact this is one of the reasons that i am such a stanch supporter of the Mozilla Firefox browser. My spelling isn't bad, but my typing (sp. on the laptop) sucks rather. Of course it is American English so when you spell it like the British, the lines will show up even when your spelling is correct.

Is your spelling getting worse?I prided myself as a kid on my excellent spelling. As the years go by it's getting constantly worse. I think it's the fault of Spell Checker, a blessed little program but one that makes us rely on it. Are you having the same experience?

How dependent are you on Spell Check?Seeing made up words and misspellings all over HubPages made me wonder how dependent most people are on spell check. I do just fine checking my own work and using a dictionary (although I know I'm not perfect). I also know there are those who type their work...

I just got a new laptop, and I'm not up to speed with all its features. Seems to me that there's a spell check feature on HubPages that works as you write comments to Hubs, but I'm not seeing that on my new laptop. I do see it while editing or creating a Hub.Thoughts, comments, advice?Thuts, cmts,...

Hi there, Hub Pages programmers--It would be very helpful if the spell-check utility could be turned on globally for the entire hub while in edit mode.I often find errors in the capsule titles and/or in photo captions, but spell-check is not currently available for those fields.Thanks for...

Spell check hasn't been working for me for some time (a month or two?). (I've been using Firefox's built-in spell check.)Don't know if it's just me, but this is what happens when I click the spell check button:http://i.imgur.com/nTWUU.jpgHere are my browser specs:Firefox 8.0Extensions:Add to Amazon...
