Spell Check

I like the spell check feature of Firefox (and other browsers) but I have learned the hard way that composing lengthy prose in a web browser is a very foolhardy thing to do. Instead, I choose to compose in an offline text editor that - since it is a free evaluation version - does not do spell check . I am placing this blank "text area" here as a convenient spot to paste text for a quick spell check.

New Editor Now Working

FCKEditor working like a charm.

 

This is really just a test post to make sure that FCKEditor is up and running.

FCKEditor tool bar full feature selected

As you can see by the above image FCKEditor features a full host of advanced editing features to simplify the creation of richly formated posts.

Until now I have been adding content to BlogDogIt.com using only the basic text area editor and manual entry of html code. I really enjoy the exersize of coding by hand after having come to rely so much on Dreamweaver for so much of the daily grinding.

I have integrated FCKEditor before in other projects and - as you too likely have - encountered it in diverse user available text editing senarios across the interwebs. Having been aware that FCKEditor was a supplied option with the GeekLog instalation I was sure that having it implemented for the benifit of our contributors would be a simple matter.

As it turned out it was simple indeed; the feature was enabled by default and one need only check the box in your User Functions ==> Language&Layout ==>

I highly recommend that you enable this feature as soon as you can following the creation of your BlogDogIt account .

I was tickled to see that FCKEditor has now changed its name (for - well - obvious reasons) to CKEditor. If you would like to learn more about FCKEditor/CKEditor Please visit the website http://ckeditor.com/.

It is my hope that you enjoy using the editor and that it helps to simplify your ability to create attractive posts and pages. I understand that while this is a nice tool it is not without its flaws. On occasion you will find the most expedient way to accomplish the task at hand is to select the view "Source" option of the editor and dive into the code. Once you get a feel for the underling code that FCKEditor is writing for you, you will truly appreciate the time this editor saves you to spite any percieved flaws.

If you ever need help using the editor or creating posts in general, I will be happy to assist you, just send me a message.

Enjoy!

New Static Page - About BlogDogIt

GeekLogIt This page is the page you will get if you click the "About" link at the top of the page. I post it here for syndication purposes.

About BlogDogIt



I go by masodo (at least in cyberspace) and I have for quite awhile now. The origin of that handle will likely be the subject of some future post but I would like to keep this page as much about this place as I can. However, since this is basically a personal project (at least for the time being) an article entitled About BlogDogIt is bound to cover common ground with an article claiming to be about masodo.

With that... Me and computers go way back. My high school had a computer and a class. I did not take the class but I did use the computer room as a location for an amateur film entitled - strangely enough - "The Computer." I could not tell you what type of computer it was other than to say it was a behemoth in blue and a punch card system. This was circa 1975. This was a time when pocket calculators had glowing red LED displays and PONG was just hitting the streets. The world of computing was strange and new. You could not really say that I was "into" computers but it would be fair to say "we hung out."

To Blog-It or Dog-It

  • Contributed by:

GeekLogIt

Well... this site is ready enough to put to use. The only question now is "to what end?" The answer, of course is "who knows?" As you can tell I have no problem with answering a question with a question. Not everything is simple black and white. To answer a question with a question is to recognize the existence of gray areas.

On the subject of "gray areas", the reasons I have for starting this blogdogit site are perhaps a little "grayley" shaded. I have been working this BlogDogIt concept for awhile now over on InfinitelyRemote.com (my hobby of a web site.) Now over there the blogging software is a DIY creation of mine done up in PHP/MySQL and is really a slick little system that takes advantage of FCK Editor, user authentication and all that "happy-go-lucky."

It was in the course of an AltaVista search for my InfinitelyRemote BlogDogIt page that I made the discovery that this-here domain of BlogDogIt.com was up for grabs and grab it I did.
