I would like to edit the text that describes the points leader board module

Hello I am new to ocPortal and would like to some guidance. I need to edit the the text that describes the leader board "This leader-board shows the top 5 point holders for this week." I have used the template tree to locate what I think the appropriate template is but none of the templates contain this text. My question is how do I edit this text and or the title "point leader board" of this module.
When I went back to the look up the exact templates that I looked in I now get an error message

Request-URI Too Large

The requested URL's length exceeds the capacity limit for this server. This is odd because I have been using this feature with no problem. Well I guess I need help with two problems now.
Thanks in advance

You'll find the files to edit in the LANGUAGE area. A good start will be here:

admin zone > style > language > leader_board

Not sure that this is has the block you want to edit tho.

Regarding the error you saw, it's likely caused on the server by this setting:
core - Apache HTTP Server

I ticked a few templates on my test install's template tree and got to 1000 in URL length, quite a long way before the limit. So probably the limit on your server is lowered, or you ticked more templates.
I doubt it'll be a big issue for you though, not many URLs in ocPortal are as long as what the template tree ones can be.

In case anyone's interested, we try and use URLs for this kind of thing instead of form posts so that the template editor can be bookmarked.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
