Okay, I think everything is back to the way it was. I upgraded SMF from 1.1.2 to 1.1.3 and then subsequently to 1.1.4. The upgrades from now on should be smoother. :crossedfingers: The new software has automated upgrading functionality.
Also, I had to make the fixes to the spell checker again because the upgrade overwrote the changes I made, so Roy, please check it and make sure it still works the way you want.
I also increased the window for the smilies that pops up, it should now fit all of the smileys without having to manually resize the window or scroll.
I found an interesting plugin called "Buy Me A Beer" and have installed it. To use it you have to go to your forum profile and then forum profile information and enter your paypal email address in the 'PayPal Address For Users To Buy You A Beer' field and there will be a small beer icon displayed next to all your posts where people can buy you a beer (send you 5 bucks via paypal).
