I’ve been using the Grammarly extension for a while now and I love it. It does like to add the Oxford comma a lot, which I hate, but otherwise it’s a very good grammar tool. It’s pretty interactive as well because Grammarly sends out emails telling you how you’re doing against others who are using the service. Of course they try to sell the premium membership too, but I think I’m happy with the free version for now.
I actually just wrote a post about a small bug that has to do with the Grammarly extension in Chrome when using WordPress. Apparently, the format bar disappears when writing a post and I have to scroll all the way to the top of the editor to use it. It’s very annoying. It went away when I turned the extension off. Otherwise, it’s very good. I’m just not sure I want to turn it back on again with this bug going on. I don’t know if it’s the fault of the Grammarly people or the WordPress plugin people.
WordPress Bug with Grammarly?I’m wondering if anyone else has noticed a small bug when using WordPress with the Grammarly extension installed in the Chrome browser. I’m currently using the WordPress Classic Editor plugin because I don’t like using the new block editor. I recently installed the Grammarly extension in Chrome and ever since I did, I noticed that the text format bar doesn’t stay fixed as I write my posts and scroll down the page now. The format bar used to stay fixed (float) to the top of the editor and when I needed to bold, italicize, add a link or add an image, all I would need to do is move my mouse upward. Now, I have to scroll all the way back up to the top of my post to do any of those things. Well, that’s not entirely true. For some strange reason, the Media button stayed fixed on the page, but that’s it.
I turned the Grammarly extension to the “Off” position in Chrome and now the editor and format bar are back to normal. I’m just wondering if I’m alone in this. Thanks!
