    Its been a week since we updated the Screwfix Community Forum.

    What do you think of the changes we have made? The feedback we have received so far has been positive.

    Have you tried the new features in which you can share this on Facebook and tweet posts, so if you ask a question on the Forum, you can share your question even further outside the Screwfix Community or just pass on your advice to a bigger audience.

    If you are having any problems such as unable to reset your password, please email so I can assist.

    I can't seem to find any spellcheck.

    I have a unmodified installation of Chrome running on Ubuntu, and it puts a red squiggly line under anything it thinks I have misspelt
  4. I use the British Dictionary add-on with Firefox. That also underlines weird words in red.

    Not, of course, that I've ever personaly seen it.
  5. Anyways, Peter, it's very good - thanks to all at SF.

    (I'd still like to see alternating background colours for, er, alternating posts. Currently, at a glance, you sometimes can't tell who said what. I mean, I thought for a second that Sean had made a sensible post above. But, no, that was me... :p)
  6. Actually, having looked at it again, it ain't bad as it is...

    Chrome does that by default Sean. (ps I'm running Ubuntu 12.04,,, much faster than Windoze)

    Anyway, I must say, how much better the forum software seems, now I've got used to it. Nice look and quite easy to use.

    I will look in to if we can add a spell checker but it might be wise to use a browser spell check.

    Have any of you used the forum on a mobile or tablet yet. Its much clearer and useable on these devices.

    Hi Teabreak

    I have checked to see if there is a a plugin for a spell checker on the forum. Unfortunately as most modern browsers have this function this was not developed. So I recommend to update your browser so you have this function.

    Thanks for getting back Peter. I usually type in word and paste if it's a long post, but may look into the Firefox option. I had a read up and there seems to be problems with the spell check on Firefox 24.0 at the moment.
