I think we need some more explanation about what you want.
At least I don't understand it.

Hi ok no issues i hope this helps do you know at the top of the browser where we currently see "posr replay" on the login page we see well "login" i would like to change this to something else

In Login.template.php find this -



// This is just the basic "login" form.
function template_login()
{
global $context, $settings, $options, $scripturl, $modSettings, $txt;

echo '
<script type="text/javascript" src="', $settings['default_theme_url'], '/scripts/sha1.js"></script>

<form action="', $scripturl, '?action=login2" name="frmLogin" id="frmLogin" method="post" accept-charset="', $context['character_set'], '" ', empty($context['disable_login_hashing']) ? ' onsubmit="hashLoginPassword(this, \'' . $context['session_id'] . '\');"' : '', '>
<div class="tborder login">
<div class="cat_bar">
<h3 class="catbg">
<span class="ie6_header floatleft"><img src="', $settings['images_url'], '/icons/login_sm.gif" alt="" class="icon" /> ', $txt['login'], '</span>




In the last line, replace ', $txt['login'], ' with your new text.

Or you can find $txt['login'] in /languages/index.english.php and change it there, bearing in mind it will also change anywhere else 'Login' is used.

Ok, here's how to do it.

In /Sources/LogInOut.php find this -



// Get the template ready.... not really much else to do.
$context['page_title'] = $txt['login'];



You can replace $txt['login'] with 'New text' .

... or

Go to /languages/index.english.php , create a new variable $txt['login_title'] , and use the new variable in LogInOut.php .

This is what i changed and uploaded it and it doesnt seem to have done anything and also i have claered the cases and same

what can i try next

Sir Osis of Liver


You did it wrong.  Just replace the $txt['login'] variable with the new text in single quotes; don't make a variable out of it -



   $context['page_title'] = 'Your new text';

ok done that mate thanks but still no go

Sir Osis of Liver

Your code is correct (except you spelled 'always' wrong). Just tried it again in 2.0 RC5 default theme.  I don't use tab browsing, but the new text appears in the title bar at the top of IE8.   In FF3.5 with tab browsing enabled, the text appears on the tab.  Are you uploading LogInOut.php to /Sources/ ?

There are two lines which contain $context['page_title'], so find the second one :)
