I would like to change the text 'Location' in calendar can someone please aim me to the correct location. I looked in calendar.php and see a number of instances but not clever enough to work it out.

it's defined in the language files, not the templates - definitely not the source files.

Probably in index.english.php

$txt['location'] = 'Location';

It is, however, probably used in more locations than the calendar

To lazy to search. But he can create a new string just for that. Would be the safiest.

Well it's also a custom field so you could rename it to whatever you want from the admin panel  :P

Or maybe go to ?action=admin;area=languages;sa=editlang;lid=english;entries > General Strings.
And edit the text string from the admin panel instead of editing the file, it's the same as manually editing the file.

Many thanks guys, I have gone with @Kindreds first post and found it in index.english.php
I went with that as I had found it before seeing the other replies, if that does alter it in other places I will check out the rest.

Cheers.

Diego,   It's not a custom field - when used for the calendar. :P

Oh you are right.
Wouldn't that cause trouble in cases like this? A custom field using a language string that is used somewhere else?
Just a thought. Though it seems this topic is resolved  :P

The custom profile field only uses the string during upgrade/installation, once it's in the database the string shouldn't be used any more.
Perhaps it would have been better if I'd simply never bothered. Y'all clearly would be less unhappy that way.

Diego Andrés

I was thinking about this earlier so I tested it.

Ohhhhhhhh. My memory is faulty because I forget that I didn't look at that code much after 2018, and it was since rewritten. (It *used* to be the way I outlined.)

But you can change the custom field to not reference it.

Yes indeed.
In reality, I only thought of it being an annoyance if the admin happens to run multiple languages, would have to use a different string if they plan of changing it's value/name.
