    BBCode offline editor for Windows 10


    Anyone know a good BBCode editor for Windows 10, the once i found seem a bit doggy.
    I like BBCode a lot, but i also get a lot of "beating" for my incorrect spelling, some "Mods" other other forums, are very annoyed by the fact, my grammar and punctuation looks like well it looks bad.

    So i try to tell small anecdotes, and use a lot of fancy BBCode, to make the font look cool
    Well they don't like my rl story's much, in fact i have been given a new title "Grandpa Simpson.
    Well i like my new title shows not all, are without humor
    Yea strange people in that forum who doesn't like my story's that never end , so i am stuck with fancy bbcode.


    But the forum only has Basic BBCode editor available to members, i can still use "advanced" editor i just have to type the code into the msg box, but its a drag to remember all the code, so an offline editor would be nice to have, where i could type my reply's or new threads before posting them, and check the spelling they really seem to get very annoyed about the fact, that my spelling could use some improvement and the fact that my native language is not English, makes no difference.
    And i get a lot of beating to from making my simple questions to long, okay they might have a point there.

    So looking for
    Windows 10, compatible BBCode offline editor.
    Thank you
    Grandpa Simpson Unfortunately, like all true stories, this one has a crappy ending

    For spelling, most browsers have a spell-checker built in. Bad spelling gets underlined with a red wavy line, a right- click on this offers a choice of correct spellings. You may need to enable it in your browser, and make sure you have an appropriate dictionary installed.

    For composing board posts offline, why not run your own private forum? Most forums use freely available software. One I'm following says at the bottom of each page: "Powered by phpBB Forum Software phpBB Limited" with a link to the software's authors. With a web service installed such as Wampserver* it's relatively easy to run your own test Forum. I can compose posts there before posting on the real site. Just make sure its set to only be available offline - you don't want the whole world reading it! Here's mine...

    Thank you for your reply, yea the forum in question use MyBB i have dl the open source software just not had time to install/upload to my server yet.
    As to the spell-checker i have tried so many different now, but it seems even the spell-checkers have "spell errors", but the most "battering" i get is from lack of lack of proper punctuation.
    And as i think i have mention i one of my long post here, i have ADHD, so have concentration issues i have the "brain power" so i am not stupid, done several test online, and i am above normal.
    But when you write like me, i use words i can spell but problem is they do not always reflect what i mean.

    So i try to over explain in my threads, or tell funny story's in my post/reply so at least if my post was unreadable you still found my small story's funny, ofc i tend to go a bit overboard with my story's or attempt at telling something funny.

    Its a flaw, i know, you need one i have plenty
    Thx for you reply m8
    ill see if i can't get around to uploading the software to my own forum, and ill work on my short reply's getting to long.

    If you have Microsoft Word or LibreOffice Writer they have punctuation and grammar checking as well as spelling.

    My web server is actually running on this PC. Its web address starts http://localhost/... Make life easy, there's no uploading needed. I just copy the files to the web root using File Explorer.

    Nothing looks so stupid than posts with "font art" from members trying to look cool. They fail miserably, only succeeding to give a negative impression. Different fonts, sizes and colours make posts difficult to read, and more importantly almost impossible to take seriously.

    I know I am not alone saying this: for instance here at our forums I simply ignore all posts with caps only, purple or red or whatever non-default font colour, non-default fonts and sizes and so on. Even if the topic itself would be something that interests me, even if I knew the answer or solution OP is looking for and the thread has no other replies, I will not reply.

    Breaking my habit just to answer you: That looks irritating, annoying and is difficult to read. There's a valid reason for various forums using easy to read sans serif fonts like Verdana.

    Really, your chosen font does not make your post or yourself cool. Quite an opposite, in fact: it gives an immature, nave image about the poster. When posting, every effort made to "look cool" using "font art" is doomed to fail, as your examples using your chosen font have already proved.
