I can't find "email" except for an empty display area in account update. Did it go away? Or am I going blind? Did it go away intentionally? No need to remove it, since it is 'opt in' anyway, and some (I, for example) much prefer email over PM.

It looks like the new software defaulted to having that disabled. That has been enabled.

Yeah, I used to like to do that as well. But I can use the 'View Active Posts' too.

I changed it to simply say "English".

I moved this down to where the other buttons are (Preview, Submit, Save, and Cancel). It seems better placed there instead of where the install instructions had indicated that it should go.

BTW - I love the ability to easily quote more than one post with this new forum software.

Umm... the spellcheck... It use to be quite good at guessing what words I actually was meaning to spell... now the only alternative for many typos/spellos seem to be looking up the word someplace else... is this a bug or does the new dictionary need filled up with more words or something? Or has my speeling just gotten worse lately?

Can you give some examples?

alternit, accidint, customise, desided, inply...

I was just wondering if this was a new dictionary file the system is using... and I'm not sure if the old one would have gotten these... I just noticed a difference... it could just be me.

I see what you mean. The old board and the new board have the same word list, but the old board does pickup on those words and gives recommendations. The new board has a newer version of the spell checker, so there is something going on with the new code.

I'll let you fight with that then... I do have to say I like the new board better and it has even fixed the log in issues I was having with the old board... kudos.

This is fixed now. For your examples, the new board and the old board show the exact same suggestions. Neither one is able to suggest anything for "inply".

Thanks for spotting that issue.

I had a couple of people complain about login issues on the old board, so that is good to hear.

Thanks, I have already noticed the difference in the spellcheck... I type in the dark a lot and only with a few fingers... most of my typos are only one key out and it's much easier to use the spellcheck than to edit this garble of mine ;)
