TBS3: thesaurus "in" is given as "rrn"
« on: February 20, 2017, 06:02:03 PM »
hi there,

ive discovered that the thesaurus has a corruption where in the list of suggestions, whenever the suggestion would include the word "in".. such as "in the", "in their", "in all", "inside" etc etc... it is always corrupted to be "rrn the", "rrn their", "rrn all", "rrnside".

if possible someone can look into the issue and have it repaired.

also I would like to know how to add to the thesaurus database?
many thanks :)

The standard thesaurus is only changed if two or more people add the same item, to prevent corruption. I seem to recall that it may add your own items locally, but not sure. You can create your own entire thesaurus in the thesaurus section. Have you checked the help videos?

Hi Meg,

the built in features for TBS allow users to "add" new terms, but these are not stored locally, I've checked this by adding in a word, and then selecting the next occurrence of the same word i had previously selected and it didn't have my new word listed from local storage. it may be that it takes time to update the standard thesaurus... hmm im not sure....

further to my OP, i have seen some ridiculous offerings, something like this (but not actual and i cant check because i already deleted the stupid offerings) lets say i select the word "temperature".. i then get offered "great fitting shoes from Zelows", or "Tom wears a black hat".....

I have no idea how 2 people can be typing in the same ridiculous statement as an alternative so i can only assume that its some kids who think they are being funny by adding such things :)

i think the thesaurus could be greatly improved by having a developer crafting default words that cannot be deleted or changed, and then allowing user added words that can be deleted if its something silly as i mentioned above.

anyway these are no major problem as the software does what it says it should, and this forum, along with the how to videos (in youtube) by matthew woodward, are a great help to get momentum with content creation.

before TBS i was a bit apprehensive to actually start building a blog, but now i have no fear of creating good content, not just because TBS can spin articles, but because it is also helping me to think of content writing in more dynamic ways.
