You know that little line of text where it says do you want to 'join' or 'login'?

Well, I don't know about anyone else, but its been getting easier to use all of the tutorials, manuals, and so on.  There's alot of info. in them to digest, but its definitely apparent the amount of work that must've gone into these: great work!

It seems, at this point, my one lingering question (is a pretty minor one) is how do you edit that little login text line where it says do you want to 'join' or 'login' when you arrive?  I can't figure where to edit this.

The bulk of that text is in the language string named 'WELCOME', which is in the 'global' language file. There's a language editor in the Admin Centre you can use to edit that.

The actual words "join", "login" and "or" are stored individually as laguage strings under the capitalisation of the same words.

  • 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.
