    <!-- /tinyMCE -->

8. Save file re-upload back to server. Refresh page.
9. Type something and click the little check mark (spelling check).

Same concept can be applied for orca forum tinymce/editor
Edit file:

After editing the file you will need to login to your dolphin admin panel, go to the orca admin area and compile the language file the little "en" in the top right corner for the changes to take effect.

And in your admin panel editors.

Have Fun!
