No spell check has not worked for quite awhile.
A quote from a recovered MLCer: 
"From my experience if my H had let me go a long time ago, and stop pressuring me, begging, and pleading and just let go I possibly would have experienced my awakening sooner than I did."

Can modify login so that all logins are forever, cookies will not expire.  Do that on all my forums.  Let me know if you want it done here.

I think that is a good idea - I say do it.

Ok, header login, main menu login, guest login, admin login (maint mode) will all login forever, options for cookielength have been removed.  Members can logout from main menu, or clear browser history, otherwise login should stick.

Ok, this is what I have.  Spellcheck doesn't work on my server, it opens empty window.  Host support tells me all necessary packages are installed on the server and pspell PHP module is enabled, but it won't work without dictionary files.  Dictionary files can't be set up on shared server, would need a VPS/dedicated server.  If spellcheck worked here previously, then stopped, something must have changed server side.  You'd have to take this up with your host.

Thank you Sir Osis,

Yes it did work before, not sure when it stopped working.  It's been awhile.

Thank You Sir Osis

Can you tell us how to save as a draft?

I used to have a mod for saving unpublished posts, but I don't even see it in the package list anymore, but if it is a default feature, I guess it's not necesssary to have a mod anyway.

I did switch packages with the host a few months ago--early Summer. Sort of the same host, but I think a different umbrella of the company. That may be what's going on with spell-check. I don't think it ever really worked for me--or I just never knew what I was doing  ;). I use grammarly and it sort of helps. Sort of--it recommended that not necessary above be changed to necessary; um wouldn't that change the meaning to the opposite of what I intended... ::).

Sir Osis, another weird thing I noticed recently and I am betting it goes back to the package switch. In my smf packages--mods--list all are listed as not installed, but they are and have been working  ???. I noticed this when I uploaded a new mod. So to just test it out, I installed the topic starter mod and so now there are two icons next to the topic starter's post on a thread!
There could be some in that list that are really not installed, but how can I even tell? I don't want to go installing anymore and having them doubled.
