vB Version: 2.3.x Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 18
Released: 12 Jun 2003 Last Update: Never Downloads: 1
Not Supported Is in Beta Stage  

Not too sure if this is where its meant to go but if it should be moved please move it.

I have been trying to find a simple spell checker to work on my forums for a while -
Eventually i found this one http://www.master-technology.com/phpbb/ which was working with phpbb.
As i have no idea how to code anything - at all!!! I asked one of their support teams to help and they gave me the answers.
So I can't take any of the credit for it, and thank them for helping me out.
At present it doesn't support vbulletin but since talkin to them they are going to be doing so in the near future.

Got it to work

Took me about three hours, but it was well worth the time, my members are ecstatic.

The way the dictionary and mysql work is, the installation creates a new table in the forum database. And you have to have the dictionary file in the spelling directory in order for the installation to load the new table. All of which was omitted in the documentation. Or at least I didn't see that part.

Also the javascript has to be changed to recognize the form and textbox.

Use the MySQL native connection for the database type, and supply the password and databse info of your forum database.

On a scale of complexity, this is by far the hardest hack yet, but the most rewarding.

If anybody needs help, shoot me an email, and I will be glad to help.

Anna

I can't seem to get by this:

I have database set to MySQL

It does not form a spelling table in the database.

It just goes right to the "you must choose database"

Any Thoughts?

You forgot to add the dictionary file to the spelling directory. Do that, and you will be off to the races.

To disable the learn function totaly do this:

In the spelling folder open your spelling.js (remember to back it up first...)

Online 404 (approx) find:

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

and delete all of it

then still in spelling.js find online 473 (approx):

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

and delete that as well.

Save the spelling.js and the learn button is removed.

Why do you want to delete the learn button, It looks like to me that it only updates a cookie, and doesn't actually add any new records to the databse. Am I missing something?

I love your script and I am using it on my site. I also have pspell installed on my server and I was wondering how I would go about changing the config file so that it uses pspell instead of MySQL. Also once I have it set up to use pspell can I delete the spelling_words table that was set up in my database?

I almost forgot. I have aspell enabled with my version of PHP and I was wondering if this can be set up to use aspell instead?

Thanks,
Parker

Does anyone have Nathan's email address? I would like to get in touch with him regarding using his script on our forum using aspell or pspell instead of MySQL.

Thanks,
Parker

Yes, you go into the configuration and set the dbtype to pspell. Upload the spell_pspell.php file Then you can delete the word table as it will then use your pspell/aspell tables.


I almost forgot. I have aspell enabled with my version of PHP and I was wondering if this can be set up to use aspell instead?
Yes, if your apell is a recent version; then the php pspell interface is what is used to call both the older pspell and the newer aspell libraries. If you have a really old verison of apell then it might not work.

That is basically because I don't actually have a copy of vBulletain. So, I won't have install instructions (or a nice spell_vbulletin.php or .js) until someone wants to work with me and give me some information that I need.

Sorry, that it was so hard. Glad you like it.

It is very hard to guess at things. :-D If I have access to the code; you would see a nice and easy drag and drop install like phpbb, or invisionboard. Once someone helps me; I hope to have a easy install instructions for vBulletin.

Nathan

Using $Spell_Config["DB_Type"] = "pspell";
returns
"You must choose a Database Type in the Spell Configuration file."

I don't see anything in the config file that calls on the spell_pspell.php file if pspell is what is set as the DB_Type.

Any suggestions?

Parker

Line #33 in the config file is:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

You uncomment it.

2nd, in the pspell directory of the last couple versions of my spell checker is the spell_pspell.php file which you upload.

Nathan.

The .zip file that we have here to download does not have that line in it or anyway of telling it when the DB_Type is pspell what to do if it is pspell.

Is there anyway you can email me a copy of phpspell to me?

Thanks,
Parker

Took all of 5 minutes to install, works like a charm.

Great Hack. Thanks.

At the bottom of any of my messages on any of the forums I watch is a link to the latest version of phpspell.

Have no idea -- they don't seem to have a public forum that I can post on without signing up for a new account. If you click on my link at the bottom of the page and try out the spell checker. (Actually do a spell check to see it in action as the initial page is just a simple form.)

Nathan.
