Automattic gets spelling and grammar checker After the Deadline

September 9, 2009 | No Comments Yet

Automattic has acquired After the Deadline, a next-generation tool that does spelling, grammar, and style checking all in one. It’s now a default feature of, and it’s also available as a plugin for self-hosted sites.

At its core WordPress has always been about writing — that’s why we put so much effort into things like the visual editor, revisions, and auto-save, so you never lose your work. Now you have another arrow in your quiver to help you present the best possible face to your readers and the world.

After the Deadline is an acquisition you probably didn’t see coming, but makes total sense! Kudos to the makers of ATD and Automattic for making the world a better place, at least when it comes to writing.
