The new files worked great! So far, it all seems to be working OK.
I do have one more question. Any idea how to get these options to display in the bottom of the bbpress profile edit page. It kind of plunked it right in the middle of the basic account stuff and it would look a lot nicer at the bottom. Any ideas?
I also checked the Both box under email types. Hopefully that will take care of that character issue.
Thanks again for all your help!!
