It would be great to have a spellcheck built into the text box.

Firefox Quantum does that quite well.

Haven't checked Chrome yet.

But I don't know about the other platforms...

There is already a spelling indicator that underlines "common" words that are misspelled, but it is only an indicator as you might already know.

There are WordPress plugins that allow for "spell checking & replacement" functionality but until the functionality is researched and possibly implemented, long posts can be copied into a word processing packages, spell checked and then copy/pasted back into your forum post.


Thanks for the suggestion
