Description

tinymce configuration is in wp-includes\js\tinymce\plugins\spellchecker\config.php, at seems to support pspell, pspellshell, google spellchecker and rpc.

Will be nice if it will be possible to configure it. A use case is create a network installation for a company which want to have its own vocabulary shared among all its writers.

It is quite easy to configure this when you have full access to your server. TinyMCE has a setting for the spellchecked backend URL. You can move the backend anywhere and configure it, then it would take a simple one-line WordPress plugin to "tell" TinyMCE the new location using the 'tiny_mce_before_init' filter.

Related, it looks like google may have scrapped the spellcheck API. Reports of numerous failures across multiple versions of WP.

From TinyMCE forums: http://www.tinymce.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=30779

Definitely an upstream issue as far as defaults, but if there's a way we can override in core to use another service, that'd be great.

I'm setting this to bug because it appears the API is broken at this point so more than an enhancement.

We don't need a UI option for this, though. I think a new ticket is warranted for the API being broken.

10-4. Was just about to add another update, but I'll open and reference a new ticket w/ that info.

Whoops. Didn't refresh editor after Helen's comment and it reset keywords.
