Greetings from Earth Angel!! A few weeks ago I noticed the spell-check feature had disappeared on all of the active comment boxes within my Hubs, or when I'm commenting on anyone else's Hubs!! Am I having yet another "blonde moment" and it's right in front of me?? Blessings always, Earth Angel!!
We removed it in the effort to speed up the web site.
Most browsers include a spellchecker so we figured that it wasn't really needed.
For example, if you use Firefox, all misspelled words get underlined in red.
Um, Larry, isn't it time for you to GO HOME! Believe me, we'll all still be here tomorrow arguing about politics or religion or other assorted and sundry stuff. Go, relax, enjoy!
Sorry Larry forgive my ignorance what is my browser and how do I make it check my spelling?
Hi Larry!! Thank you for the clarification!! I create using aol as my browser and it doesn't have a spell checker!!?? Did it really slow down the site that much?? I'll see what I can do!! Thank you again for letting me know!! Blessings always, Earth Angel!!

Just wondered if there was any point in having a spelling and grammar checker within hubpages?I raise this question because I see a lot of spelling and grammar mistakes while reading through hubs. It spoils an excellent piece of work. If people wrote their piece in word, first or...
