Interesting.
It would be nice to have an admin option to customize/change the text for 'Topic Author'. I guess its easy enough in the mod files but an admin option to change it would be best for people not accustomed to editing files... with it set to Topic Author as default.

My particular reason is that our site is an event site so something like event leader/ event organizer would be better. Im sure others might want to edit the title given.

I was thinking about adding text filed that would allow you to change text without file edit, but on the other hand, if you have multilingual community then all users would see the same text. With language file you can customize it for any language.

Valid point but it was the first I thought it needed, especially as it has an administration area.

Nice mod though  ;)

@4Kstore, Thanks :)

Why would you think that? Of course they can edit language strings, using your tip, but most of people wants to have option for everything... :)

Because no-one actually mentioned what I had to say, so even though they *already have the option* to edit from the admin panel...

Preferred method (form input) rather than editing files which all have to be done again when SMF and template files are updated or mods become too entangled... but I see your point about alternative languages.


In this case, doing it through Admin isnt as bad but I have a bottomless list of edits ... just editing manually up to my eyeballs with SMF.  ::)

I will install it and edit as Arantor mentions - thanks.

Its installed and working but I cant find anything related to it in the modifications language files.

English one only contains references to meta data mod for 'author' and 'topic' for  renaming subjects etc.
Same when I looked at it after ftp.

The other languages files are also completely empty - thought mods would have added the english translations there so they could be translated....uhm.

*shrug* I just figured this mod would add it to Modifications like all the other modifications out there. Sorry I bothered trying to help by pointing out a very useful feature in SMF.

Tongue in cheek... no need to get upset. I thought it wouldve been there too. And yes it is a useful feature... not that well known maybe.
