My spellchecker started to have a mind of its own. One time it’s working, one time it’s not. But mostly not, which makes writing a post a much more lengthy and tiring process. Does someone have an idea what’s going on?
Someone started a thread on this yesterday. Sounds like it’s some functionality that got changed on the back end, so send a feedback in reporting what you’re using to view the page and what exactly is happening. Hopefully it can be streamlined, or at least changed back.
In the middle of June there were similar spellchecker problems for some of those with IE browsers https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic.php?id=12374 Who knows if the two are related? Anyway, whether they are or not, as raincoaster says this should be brought to staff attention so send in feedbacks.
