Hi,

Is there a way I can change some of name fields like in profile page
eg: Name change it to Real Name?

QuoteName <<--- Default
This is the displayed name that people will see.

QuoteReal Name <<-- Modified
This is the displayed name that people will see.


What file should I edit in the back-end?

thanks

That is acquired from index.english.php --> $txt['name']
But to change it has probably implications in other places...

The safest way would be to add to index.english.php
$txt['name_real'] = 'Real Name';
Then edit Sources/Profile-Modify.php and find:
'label' => $txt['name'],
(under "real_name" array item)
And replace with:
'label' => $txt['name_real'],

Thanks @Margarett for the file idea, I did change the default index.english.php "Name" to "Real Name"

Now on the Registration page part:

QuoteChoose Display Name: <<=== Default
This is the name that will be displayed

change to

QuoteReal Name: <<=== Modified
This is the name that will be displayed

Where to find this line?


Thanks again for the support.

No idea :o I don't know that string in registration...
Do you use a MOD for entering display name at registration?

margarett

Can you printscreen that? I have no idea where that comes from...

That's not standard in SMF. So, what mod was it that you added?

1)Birthday on Registration
2)Social Login (OneAll Social)

Arantor

I'm sorry, I have no idea how you added that field - I have no idea if it's part of the Social Login mod or not - but that field simply does not exist in SMF out of the box. A search on 'change display name' yields nothing in the entirety of 2.0.8.

Ok got the file:


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE modification SYSTEM "http://www.simplemachines.org/xml/modification">
<modification xmlns="http://www.simplemachines.org/xml/modification" xmlns:smf="http://www.simplemachines.org/">
<id>JBlaze:DisplayNameOnRegistration</id>
<version>2.0</version>

<file name="$languagedir/Modifications.english.php">
<operation>
<search position="end" />
<add><![CDATA[
$txt['display_name'] = 'Choose Display Name';
$txt['display_name_desc'] = 'This is the name that will be displayed';
]]>
</add>
</operation>
</file>


I hope this is correct

margarett

Yup, exactly ;)
Edit your Modifications.english.php and change the text as you wish. Do note that doing this will prevent the MOD from uninstall cleanly, in case you ever need to do it ;)

Also note, for the future -- questions regarding a specific mod should be asked and discussed in the thread dedicated to supporting that mod
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
