I've published several posts on Wordpress and want to revise and spell check them. I just realized that I can't use Site Content to do that once they're published. I don't see a spell check option on Wordpress. How do I spell check on Wordpress?

There's a free version of Grammarly and it works through a web browser. I use ProWritingAid which does more than spell check.

A great suggestion Dale. It's a shame there is no spellcheck in wordpress. An interesting oversight.

Hi, Lily-
Yes, I agree. Why doesn't Wordpress have a spell check? It is probably part of the great international, world wide spell check conspiracy, no doubt.

The best option IMO is to simply leverage a spellchecker browser extension. For example if you use the browser Mozilla Firefox, then you can add a "dictionary" extension and it will automatically spellcheck content for you - even here at WA, etc.

Similar tools are likely available for Chrome, Edge, etc.

Thanks so much for this info. I just downloaded spell check on Google Chrome and am now following you.

Hi - you can go back and run a spell check in Site Content, but you can't make any changes there once published. You would have to make a note of the errors, then go to WordPress to edit them.
