Solved Change Forum text

Post by HyperActive on August 20th 2012, 10:20 am

I couldn't decide on a title to use, because it's hard to explain in a title.

Is there a way to change the word "Topics" to "Threads" and the word "Posts" to "Messages" ?

Here is my forum url to show you: http://forumsupport.forumotion.com/

Under each category, it says Topics and Posts, i think you will get what i mean. I use punbb

Display>Templates>General
Click on modify corresponding to index_box
There must be this code.
Code:
<div class="main-content">
         <table cellspacing="0" class="table">
            <thead>
               <tr>
After this there must be
Code:
   <th class="tcl">{L_FORUM}</th>
So on.
So replace {L_FORUM} with whatever you want.
Save. Publish the templates.

What did you do, did you delete the rest of the template codes?

Just revert it back to the default template by hitting on corresponding to index_box

well if i do that, it would mess up my theme, because the default theme i was using isnt the same as this one, and when i installed this one, i had to use a new index body, if you want i could PM you founder info to take a look?

Well, i can't do any changes as the codes are gone for that specific thing & its index_box & not index_body. So it should be fine?

Code:
 <th class="tcl">{L_FORUM}</th>
<th class="tc2">Threads</th>
<th class="tc3">Messages</th>
<th class="tcr">{L_LAST POST}</th>
That should be the code instead of the one you provided. Then save & publish the template. Do not change anything else in the template.
