Spelling

When the QA module checks your site, it scans all text for spelling errors and keeps a record of misspelt words.

To fine tune the spellchecker you can create page exclusion rules to prevent particular pages or sections being checked. You might want to do this for areas of your site where the content is not created or moderated by your organisation (eg. forums or event listings). Scan histories are also stored so you can determine whether the quality of spelling is improving or declining on your websites.

Dashboard widgets

Spelling summary

This widget shows the number of pages with spelling errors, as a percentage for all completed QA scans and the total number of spelling errors sitewide. The traffic light system works as follows:

  • Green = an reduction in the number of spelling errors since the last report
  • Amber = no change
  • Red = an increase in the number of spelling errors since the last report

Common misspellings

Spelling errors are listed out in this widget with the number of occurrences and how many pages the error appears on. If a word is in this list (i.e. doesn't exist in the pre-loaded global dictionary) but is correct, you can add it by clicking the Add To Dictionary link. You will only need to do this once for unrecognised words such as product names and industry specific terms to create a global, custom library of terms within your organisation. The dictionary is also used by and can be added to in the WYSIWYG editor.
