Ever since I started using Notepad++ for my blogging, I needed spell check in the program. The biggest reason why I use a text editor in the first place is because this way I can write whatever HTML code I want instead of the WYSIWYG editor not giving me what I want.
Either way, the program is called ASpell, and the instructions for how to get it set up are here.
In the instructions, under step number 4, I had to make a slight change to the procedure since the program didn’t ask me for the configuration right away. I had to click through some menus to find it. I believe inside the Notepad++ program, I clicked Plugins > Spell-Checker > Spell-Checker, and then it asked me for the configuration, so I pointed it to the place that the instructions said (“C:\Program Files\Aspell\bin”). Also, this spell checker requires the plugin and the dictionary to work. Make sure both are installed.
I should also mention that the program itself does a good job in checking the spelling of words, but since I’m using it on HTML code, it complains about my html tags, so I just added those tags to the dictionary so it doesn’t bother me with them again. And also some words, it doesn’t quite recognize like the word “plugin” and “blogging”.
