Not Supported Template Edits Additional Files  

A 3.6 version by cynix2 is posted here:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=124578

What this does: vB Spell allows you to install a dictionary (English dictionary included) into your MysQL database, and provide a spell checking window that works in both of vB's editor modes, standard and WYSIWYG.

Background: Many of you liked PungoSpell, but didn't like recompiling PHP for it. Many liked PHPSpell, but didn't like the lack of WYSIWYG support and browser compatibility. vB Spell solved both problems, I hope, by combining the best of each.

Features:
o Supports most recent versions of browsers. Tested on IE, Firefox, Mozilla/Netsacpe, Opera and Konqueror (Konqueror implies Safari, but please confirm Mac folks)
o Learn Feature uses cookies, so it won't increase the database size
o Admin panel options
o Works in WYSIWYG toolbar, Standard toolbar, and no toolbar
o Can be added in full edit mode, quick edit and quick reply.
o Skips quoted text and other tags (PHP, code, etc.)
o Usergroup permisisons
o Template based interface, and uses your default style.
o Link buttons (Thesarus and Lookup) with links to Merriam Webster's online thesarus and dictionary links with the suggestion for misspelled words.

Installation:
Note: There is a french version of vB Spell, by cclaerhout posted here

1. Upload files and run vbspell_install.php
2. Go to AdminCP > vBulletin Options > vB Spell and edit your usergroup permisisons.
3. Template edits: (see alternative method, if you don't mind removing the ieSpell button made by vB : http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...9&postcount=48)

For each template where you would like to add a vB Spell, do the following edits (Example: editpost, newreply, newthread, etc.)

A. Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

B. Find: (or anywhere in the body)

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Add after:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

C. Find the submit and preview buttons:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add below:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Other templates:

Optional: Other Templates that contain edit boxes are:
USERCP_SHELL just add A before the </head section and B after it. Required for pm_newpm and modifysignature.
editpost
Calendar Templates: calendar_edit
New Posting Templates: newreply, newthread

Quick reply: . Put change A and B in showthread, as the rest, and use this for step C:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Right after this (also in showthread):

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

For quick edit in postbit_quickedit, use this for step C (A and B are in showthread):

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

After this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Installed (eventually)

I had same problem as many others with the install stopping at step 5.

I fixed this as recommended by an earlier poster by creating a new dictionary.dic file for the words not transferred to the db in the first run. I oploaded the new dic file (overwriting the original) and ran step 5 again. It completed ok and install finished without further problems.

Great hack.

Andy

enlarging window?

I think I mentioned this in an earlier post, but it's starting to bother me and I like to find out if there is a solution. The window that opens for the spell checker is too small and cuts off the right side in Firefox (left in IE) so it is hard to reach the scroll bar for "suggestions". See attached image. I can drag the window to make it bigger, but I don't like having to do that every time and some users might not realize that.

Is there anyway to make the window bigger?

Thanks,

Andrew

Installed today, and works well; except that it doesn't work from the postbit quickedit (always finds 0 mistakes in posts when checked thus, even if there are many spelling errors). I can also repeat the query of the post above: namely, that the spell check window is improperly sized in Firefox. Any chance of a fix for that?

Else, all looks quite nice. What are the options for installing other dictionaries (e.g. a UK English dictionary)?

As Princeton laid out in post #301 change the postbit_quickedit

change


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

to


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

after


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

worked for me with everything else as laid out with the changes to the postbit_quickreply template in v 3.5.4

Hi,

Thanks for this great extension

I finally managed to solve my problem concerning the importation of the dictionary. I did it in several steps, while cutting file DICTIONARY.DOC in several subfiles.

On the other hand, I have now a new issue. During the spell checking, no accentuated word is recognized. It's in french.

For example, the word “vérifier” will not be known and it will see the word like this :

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

It puts a space in front or behind each accentuated letter. I don't know the cause of this problem and what I must correct. It's very frustrating

Any ideas ?

Regards,

I'm interested in this as some of my users can't even spell the most simple words.
Is there a dutch language available for it?

For each template where you would like to add a vB Spell, do the following edits (Example: editpost, newreply, newthread, etc.)

Can you give me all of the names, I think I have all of them but want to make sure I am not missing any of them.

Hitting "Installed" and I love it!!

Thanks
