Until we are able to incorporate spelling directly into our message box, when you click on the spell check it will ask if you want to install "ie spell".   It's won't put a bunch of gobbly goop on your computer.  It's free shareware type stuff.   Right now Modzilla is not compatible, but you can use ie.

It's kind of pain, but you only have to do it once, and you'll  always have a smarty pants spellchecker. 

  1. When you post, your message box will open.  Click on the little spell check icon.  That will begin the process and a box will come up asking if you want to install "ie spell."
  2. So if you say yes, that you want to install it, it will take you to the ieSpell download page,
  3. then you click on the first option "Download Now! Primary Mirror"
  4. then it takes you to the Mirror site where you click on "US, Minnesota (HTTP)
  5. then a box pops up and depending on your system it will either say "run" or "ok", you click on either one.
  6. Then the little terms of service and privacy agreement will pop up. (I didn't see anything about marketing, or spam poop - just for their own data, which is normal)   Click okay.
  7. Then it will install.
  8. After you may have restart your browser, you'll forever be fine.

It may be a couple of months before we get spelling directly installed, so for now it's a good temp solution.

On the forum page - On the upper right hand corner below "Your forum leaders are BinkyBunny",  click on "My Profile".  That will take you to your profile area.  Then in the profile area, towards the bottom, click on "Edit Profile"   From there you can upload you're avatar, and profile pic, enter info, delete email notification if so desired (though your actual email address is hidden)

Note avatars and  profile pics will automatically be sized.

Avatar is what will show on the forum.  Profile pic is only seen when people click on your member name.

Good luck! Let me know if you have any problems.
