I can run it from a command line, and everything appears to work fine, however in the HTMLEdit settings page, the dropdown for spell checking is greyed out and won't allow me to enable it. Is there something else I need to do to tell moodle that aspell's been installed?
Check in the Moodle - Admin - Config - Editor setting for the place to turn in on called editorspelling in 1.4.4 and select Yes obviously.
Hope this works for you
I have the same problem. I can not enable spell checking, it is also greyed out and won't allow me to enable it. The aspell is installed on my server.
Did you solve this problem?
($CFG->aspellpath = '/path/to/aspell') After that the spellchecking choise is enabled.
Thanks for the spellchecking hint.
Are you suggesting to download config.php from the moodle folder on my server, making the addition of ($CFG->aspellpath = '/path/to/aspell') and uploading config.php back to the moodle folder on my server?
Where exactly this line should be added?
You can add the line somewhere before php ending tag '?>' like:
<?php /// Moodle Configuration File
$CFG->dbtype = 'mysql';
$CFG->dbhost = 'yourhost';
$CFG->dbname = 'yourdbname';
$CFG->dbuser = 'youruser';
$CFG->dbpass = 'yourpass';
$CFG->dbpersist = true;
$CFG->prefix = 'mdl_';
$CFG->wwwroot = 'http://your.domain.tld';
$CFG->dirroot = '/usr/local/apache/htdocs/path';
$CFG->dataroot = '/your/data/path';
$CFG->admin = 'admin';
$CFG->directorypermissions = 0777;
$CFG->aspellpath = '/usr/bin/aspell';
// MAKE SURE WHEN YOU EDIT THIS FILE THAT THERE ARE NO SPACES, BLANK LINES,
// RETURNS, OR ANYTHING ELSE AFTER THE TWO CHARACTERS ON THE NEXT LINE.
Thanks again Janne!
What I also need is to prevent my students from jumping ahead, unless they complete one topic they should not be permitted to proceed to the following topic. My course consists of 15 chapters-topics subdivided into lessons, and the final test is in topic 16.
I have noticed some work on "activity locking" at moodle.org . I wonder if the "activity locking" is what I really need to prevent jumping ahead. I think that activity locking will be available in the next moodle 1.5 upgrade. Do you know anything about activity locking?
Will this line of script for spell checking be available as a standard part in moodle 1.5?
