Add-on spellcheck dictionaries
Thingamablog ships with an English dictionary only. However, you can download a dictionary for whichever language you need from OpenOffice extensions.
First, go to the OpenOffice dictionary page and download the dictionary zip file appropriate for your language. Next, simply copy the downloaded zip file to <INSTALL_DIR>/dictionaries, where <INSTALL_DIR> is the location where you installed Thingamablog. After the file is copied, restart Thingamablog and go to Configure/Options and select the dictionary from the drop-down list.
The spell checker should now be able to spell check your language.
