(1/1)

ronaldguilmet:
i want to change the "media" to "videos" but I searched the index.template.php thru and thru and can't find it. I find the menu code, but no way to change. it's all php, but don't see where the menu is getting pages from.

geek_andy:
Try looking in ./Sources/Subs.php

Text is also usually stored in the language files located ./Themes/default/languages/Modifications.english.php

Yoshi explains alot better below

That won't help, as mods may not have hardcoded text. It's only useful when checking what text string is used.

Assuming you are using SMF 2.0.2, try looking in "Themes/default/languages/Modifications.{your language}.php".
You need to check that for all languages.

If you want to check the string used, go into Sources/Subs.php and look for the button. Then find "'title' => $txt['the_string']," for that button, where $txt['the_string'] must be found in Modifications.{your language}.php. Of course this is just an example :)

Yes, you are right, I have edited the menu on my forum dozens of times I should have learnt by now..  :-[

ronaldguilmet:
thanks guys.

I found it in  themes/default/languages/Modifications.english.php

I use Aeva and it was located in there

--- Code: ---// Aeva Media extra strings
$txt['aeva_gallery'] = isset($txt['aeva_gallery']) ? $txt['aeva_gallery'] : 'Video & Media';

--- End code ---

i changed the end piece from Media to Video & Media
thanks again
