    I get an ERROR message when I use the spell check and a blank box when I try to put in a hyperlink.

    You can add a link using html, but it is a lot easier to use a window. I hope this is resolved soon.
    Also, you cannot use size three letters now.

    We are looking into the problem with the spell checker.

    For the links, can you right click on the link popup box and select Reload Frame?

    No, I can’t. It’s a blank box. I can’t reload anything, it won’t allow me to insert any text. The old dashboard did not have this problem.

    I am having the same problem, no spell checker and I cannot add YouTube videos either? Anyone else having this problem? Other then that I like the look of the new Dashboard, just wish it worked… is it in Beta or is this the tested model???

    When you leave a report saying it’s not working for you please also leave information about:

    Your browser and version
    What OS you’re running
    Whether or not you’ve performed the cookie dance (the cache-clearing move recommended above)
    A direct link to your blog.

    Oops, must edit my copy/paste. Cookie dance is: Clear your browser cache and cookies and do a forced reload of the page you’re having issues with. If you’re writing a post, save the text first of course.

    OK, I actually just figured out the refresh part of the linking. But, that’s really annoying. Can this be corrected long-term?

    #210393

    I expect the need to force refresh will go away as things stabilize. By tomorrow everything should be synchronized and running more smoothly. Even with the old version of WordPress, I found myself doing the cookie dance about once a month. A file in a cache gets corrupted, a cookie gets corrupted – don’t know how either happens, but it does from time to time.

    Spell check doesn’t work? I can’t even find it! Where is it so I can see if it works for me?

    #210717

    Spell check isn’t there right now, but as I understand it it will be back in a few days.

    PLEASE!!!!I need back the spell check option. All the other new stuff it useless if spell check on a blog site was omitted. How fast are you going to be able to fix?

    Spell check would be nice to get back. I went to school in California, they don’t teach you how to spell there.
