Where do I find the language string to edit "This is a spacer post for an ocPortal comment topic. The content this topic relates to is here"

It's not in "OCF" so any ideas where?

It's SPACER_POST in the global language file.
As a rule of thumb, messages which are used throughout the system are in global. Only messages used by OCF are in OCF; this message is used regardless of the forum you're using.

OK next question - how do I alter the text for the calender?

I have changed it via the language editor but it still shows the same?

I wish to change "festival" to "competition" for example.

I want to put my own icons, have found where they are, and my own words, have changed the words but when creating a new category it still shows 'festival'. I've turned language caching off for now but no difference.

???

The language strings for the calendar event types are only used on installation, when the event types are created. You need to go to "Edit event type" under "Calendar" in the content management area, and change the title there.

Thanks.

That works for the drop down list, not the picture names in the 'Add event type' thingy.

The picture names are determined by the filenames of the image files themselves. :)

OK next question - can someone remind me where I find the language string for the registration page, the bit where it sez it will send an email?

I've edited it before but now I can't find the little blighter…

The registration page is part of OCF, so look in the OCF file. (Just think to yourself: is this something which would be present if I wasn't using OCF? If the answer is yes, it'll probably be in global. Otherwise, it will probably be in OCF. :))

HA!!

You got me there.  I thought a core function of OCP was the 'Registration' function so that Guests/Visitors were limited in what they could see or do. I don't remember it saying anything about the registration feature being linked intrinsically to the running of a Forum - OCF or any other.

I can understand that if a Forum has been included that the registration becomes an intrinsic part of both, but it seems from what you say that if a Forum is included that all registration activity is driven by the Forum - and not the site.

A little clarification, please.

 O_o

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Yes, all registration activity is done by the forum. If this forum is OCF, it's done by OCF and is more tightly integrated with ocPortal, but if ocPortal is installed with another forum, all the user stuff will be drawn from that forum's database, and registration will be handled by the forum. :)

That makes sense considering a community site might be adding the features of OC to an existing forum. That's where a lot of scripts go wrong, they try to force Vbulletin or Invision to behave how the script wants. A script that looks to the forum is a much more sensible method.

Of course it can go the other way - what happens if I decide to get Vbulletin for my OC site?
