HI,
Are there any plans of adding a spell checker on post reply page? This would be very useful, as I am currently pasting my replies in word before I post.
There are a number of people who use the Java ranch and English is not there first language. I am sure they would appreciate a spell checker.
Chris

Spell checker is not a simple thing. Most spell checking software costs real money. The spell checker used in Jive is one of the reasons that they did away with their free version.

Jive did away with the free version long before they added a spellchecker.
They did away with it as soon as the volunteers had built a stable codebase for free...

It's all a matter of perspective. I'd have said once they had a pay-for version in place, they were then free to include features that cost real money.

Can you back up that statement with evidence Joe? Did any of the developers breach the license under which Jive was released?
