How to disable wordpress proofreading
I use WordPress for this site.
it is a fantastic platform, and has a lot of cool features.
one of the features that I find annoying is the proofreader function.
I have spellcheck in my browser, and even that doesnt match most of the technical things I write about, so it becomes irritating when I’m updating a post and have to click extra buttons for the proofreader to ignore everything I’ve just typed.
fortunately you can turn it off [and use it when you want to use it – eg when first writing a post]!
- open your wordpress dashboard
- go to users > my profile
- scroll down to the proofreading options
turn off “Automatically proofread content when:”
a post or page is first published
a post or page is updated
to completely disable it,
or turn off the updates option to keep it running when you first post but not when you update a post!
