Snap Shot and Spellcheck

I have a blog on WordPress.com, besides this one (WordPress.org). Anyway, on that site, something called Snap Shots is enabled (there is not as much control by the user there).

I figured that it had to be a plugin of some kind and I was able to find it. It’s very easy to install. You don’t have to be a programmer, and if you go to the Snapshot web page, they even have a 1 click installation button. So now, if you hover your mouse over a link, it will show you a snapshot (get it 🙂 ) or preview of the page that it is linked to.

While checking out .COM, I examined the spellchecker since I haven’t been able to get it to work on the .ORG site and it worked. So, I came to this site and tried it, and it worked perfectly.Spellcheck in visual editor Prior to this, I would get an error message. Now you click on the spellcheck and that turns it on and checks the spelling, then underlines the misspelled words in red. Clicking on the red words will offer suggestions. Now, I think you should be able to click on the suggestion and that will replace the word, but that doesn’t happen.

Follow-up:

It didn’t work because for whatever reason, Camino won’t play. Works fine in FireFox.

WordPress Upgrade

I see that WordPress has upgraded its software to version 2.2. Upgrading is pretty easy, but you have to be paying attention to what you’re doing. I think I’ll upgrade tomorrow when I will have lots of time available.

I hope part of the upgrade includes a fix for the spellchecker, which seems broken on my machine and browser.
