I'm having an issue on both my servers. Roundcube spell check is on, the icon appears, but it doesn't find any spell check errors when the button is pushed. Tested in both IE and Firefox.

Anyone seen this before. It appears to have just started today. I have a user who reports any issues and he finds them very quickly. Normally it is spell check being turned off by an update, but this time, that isn't the case.

Hello :)

The cPanel guide for enabling Spell Check for Roundcube is available at:

How to Enable Spell Check for Roundcube

Could you review this document and let us know if you made the required changes? Also, could you let us know which version of cPanel is installed on this server?

Thank you.
Sorry, you misunderstood. I'm running WHM 11.38.1 (build 6). The spell check is enabled, it doesn't work. That is the issue. I've been running the spell check for about 3 years now and it always works fine, until a few days ago. In the past, it has been disabled by updates, I simply turn it back on. In this case, it is on, the icon is there, but when it is pressed, it simply doesn't find any errors.

This is a problem with both of my servers on both IE and Firefox, so it isn't server specific nor is it browser specific.

To update, it was discovered that Roundcube is using an API at Google which is not valid. We have accordingly removed our documentation related to the spell check feature of Roundcube. Using built-in browser spell check functionality is probably the best option at this point, as this is not an issue that we at cPanel can resolve.

Thank you.
