How can I change or rename the existing texts (like Welcome Page, etc)?

This page helps you to rename or change the texts. For example, you might want to change the wordings like,

Solution: The solution is very simple. If you want to change texts in the front-end, the file to be modified is the front-end language file and the same applies for the back-end too. The location of the language files are given below.

  • Front-end: <root>/language/en-GB/en-GB.com_jblance.ini
  • Back-end: <root>/administrator/language/en-GB/en-GB.com_jblance.ini

Open the file and search for the text (partially) you want to replace and change it.

Changing module's language texts

Apart from modifying the language files of component, you may need to modify modules' language files as well.

  • <root>/language/en-GB/en-GB.mod_jblancelatest.ini
  • <root>/language/en-GB/en-GB.mod_jblancecategory.ini
  • <root>/language/en-GB/en-GB.mod_jblancesearch.ini
  • <root>/language/en-GB/en-GB.mod_jblanceusers.ini
  • <root>/language/en-GB/en-GB.mod_jblancetags.ini
  • <root>/language/en-GB/en-GB.mod_jblancefeeds.ini
  • <root>/language/en-GB/en-GB.mod_jblancestats.ini
  • <root>/language/en-GB/en-GB.mod_jblancebalance.ini

Changing Features of User Groups

If you want to change the features of each user group, go to User Group and change the description.

  1. If your site's default language is other than English (say Russian ru-RU), you need to translate all the above files in the corresponding language folder (say ru-RU).
  2. If your site's default language is other than English, you need to copy all the above files to your language folder (say ru-RU) and rename them (for example ru-RU.com_jblance.ini, ru-RU.mod_jblanceusers.ini, etc)
