NativeSpell

Version: 1.0

Author: @Xuchilbara [Xb|7F] SevenFactors

Homepage: https://userscripts.org/scripts/show/178795

 

 

Summary

This script allows your browser's native spell checker to run normally when using the community.playstation.com's HTML [WYSIWYG] editor.

 

 

About

NativeSpell is the result of my quest to revert Firefox's bug 905176 's patch.

Starting with v24.0, Firefox will start to obey the HTML5 attribute spellcheck="false" which completely disables Firefox's built-in spell checker.

 

Install NativeSpell to once again enjoy Firefox's built-in in-line as you type spell checking throughout the community.us.playstation.com forums.

FAQ

 

Q: What does NativeSpell do?

 

NativeSpell changes the spellcheck's attribute value from "false" to "true" thus allowing Firefox's built-in spell checker to work.

 

Example:

 

-Without NativeSpell

 

<textarea spellcheck="false"></textarea> 

 

-With NativeSpell

 

<textarea spellcheck="true"></textarea>

 

 

 

Q: Does NativeSpell run throughout the entire community.us.playstation.com?

 

No. NativeSpell only runs where is needed, that is all community.us.playstation.com pages that feature the HTML editor.

 

Example:

 

http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/forums/postpage
http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/forums/postpage/
http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/forums/postpage/board-id~
http://www.community.us.playstation.com/t5/forums/postpage
http://www.community.us.playstation.com/t5/forums/postpage/
http://www.community.us.playstation.com/t5/forums/postpage/board-id~ 

 

 

All of this URLs direct you to the same /postpage/ HTML editor.

 

The above are the /postpage/ URLs then we have the /postreply/ & /privatenotes/ URLs. HTTPS versions are included too.

 

 

 

Q: Does NativeSpell work with other web browsers?

 

This is on the drawing board. If you don't mind getting your hands dirty with JS and want to help me expand NativeSpell browser support, PM me.
