    TinyMCE Enable gecko_spellcheck?

    The spell check feature doesn't appear to be working (read some postings that Google shut down their spell checking service).

    Apparently TinyMCE turns off the built-in Gecko spell checker. You can re-enable it by setting gecko_spellcheck = true within the TinyMCE initialization, but I can't find where TinyMCE.init function is located for the RichText fields in the backend.

    Downloaded the source and figured it out: App_Config/tinyMceConfig.config

    At the end of the configuration file is the section:

       <!--    <config key="myKey">mySetting</config>-->
       <config key="entity_encoding">raw</config>
       <config key="spellchecker_rpc_url">GoogleSpellChecker.ashx</config>

    Just need to add:

    <config key="gecko_spellcheck">true</config>

    Then restart the app (touch the web.config).

    Note: Because TinyMCE hijacks the right-click menu, you'll need to press Ctrl when right-clicking in order to get the native right-click menu with spellcheck replacement words.

    I tried this but couldn't get the gecko spell check working in 4.11. An alternative spellchecker which I'm now using is the HunSpellChecker plugin
