Spelling...

On the Forum Index page, it says "Community Discussion Forum - Info Center"... Would it be possible to use British English spelling please?

Re: Spelling...

As it's part of the SMF forum software which these forums run off, I'm not sure this can be changed, however I'm sure one of those clever chaps/chapesses in the Web Portal Team can find a hack to change it.

Find a hack? tut tut tut, we cannot support such action  Tongue
You're right though, they probably could.

It should be a simple change to the language file...

It's only a question of swapping 2 text characters... I'm sure the technology must exist...

Re: Spelling...

You'd have thought that... but not being a fan of SMF I suspect it's a lot harder.

Re: Spelling...

Any progress on either issue?
The spelling is still wrong on the front page & I see the spear chucker still reports 'centre' as incorrect.
(It's not very keen on 'chucker' either.)  Tongue

Re: Spelling...

You can now choose to set your language to 'British English' and it will use that. Also set it as default.

Re: Spelling...

I was already set to British English, but I'm beginning to think it may be Firefox, not the forum, that's responsible.
ooops.  Embarrassed

See you've sneaked a quick change in to the front page though. Smiley
