How to change homepage startpage text

jollence lee Posted in General Discussion 5 years ago

Hi,
I've been searching on the forum discussion with no success on how to change the front homepage text.
"Welcome to Ossn Demo! Join now to make new friends, create groups, add photos, and much more."
Needed to change to suitable for the site community. Thanks

Johannes,

you wouldn't need to 'guess' every time if you simply follow the instructions outlined in https://www.opensource-socialnetwork.org/wiki/view/1137/how-to-find-something-a-word-pattern-in-the-source-code

Using your text editor in order to search in a bundle of files can't be that complicated...

I took a guess there that it was core/default.php and it was. Thanks.

@Johannes, please search your old discussion topics i have answered to you many times about this.

Thanks. But which file do I need to change?

Here you go!

.home-left-contents .description {
    text-transform: initial !important;
}

I'm gonna hijack this old thread to ask: how do I make that text not uppecase only?

Go to the root of your site and open the locale folder and inside there you will see ossn.en.php

Find this line (20 lines down from top)
'home:top:heading' => "Welcome to %s! Join now to make new friends, create groups, add photos, and much more.",

Change it to what you want to say. Take note that %s is what makes the message list the name of your site.

Welcome to %s! is what makes it say Welcome to MySite!
