Understanding the Misspellings Report

From the Misspellings Report, you can see a list of all misspellings in your section, along with spelling suggestions (if any), when the misspelling was first detected, and how many pages the misspelling occurs on, as shown below.

The Misspellings Report will show all the words flagged as misspellings along with spelling suggestions (if any), when the match was first detected, and the number of pages containing that misspelling.

Note: If a misspelling is in an accordion piece of content, you'll have to use the Show HTML button to see where on the page it occurs.


Fixing Misspellings

Once you have identified where misspellings occur in your section, log into T4 and make the appropriate changes. Remember, even if you go into T4 and fix the misspellings right away, your content may not be approved and/or the site may not publish immediately. This is very annoying for those of us who like instant gratification. You'll probably have to wait until the next Siteimprove report to see that the misspellings have been fixed.
