Spell Check Issue

The htmlArea 2 & 3 editors have been discontinued.

We've made these forums available as a read-only reference and knowledge-base for people using or developing editors based on htmlArea 2 or 3.

Anyone who is interested in taking over version 2 or 3 is free to do so. All we ask is that you choose a new name that doesn't have "htmlarea" in it to avoid confusion with this site. We'll even give you a link in the directory to make it easier for people to find you. If you are developing or hosting an htmlArea based-editor under a new name, please submit it to our directory.

Spell Check Issue Can't Post

I’ve installed according to the instructions, but the spell check does not seem to work right.

When I open it from the tool bar, all I see to get in the pop-up window area (where I would assume to see the plug-in working it's way through my miss-spelled copy) is the perl code to the plug-in itself.

#! /usr/bin/perl -w

...and so on.

The plug-in dir is where it should be, and my server has perl at that location (/usr/bin/perl), aspell is there... so what gives?

Is is possible that apache is not configured to allow .pl or .cgi outside the cgi-bin dir? How would I check that?
