Forgot your username?

Postby kelly923 » Fri Apr 06, 2012 1:22 am

Is it possible to replace the text

Forgot your username?
Forgot your password?

with an linkable image

and once you click that link, and on that page I'm using a background image and I need to also move the email box and text down a bit, does anyone know where that is, I've tried to use firebug but I just can't figure out where it is

Thank you for any help or direction

Kelly

It is not clear whether you are using a component (via menu item) or a module to login.

If it component (via menu item), you could change the following language strings that are available in the file en-GB.com_content.ini that is located in the directory \language\en-GB.

Code: Select all

COM_USERS_LOGIN_REMIND="Forgot your username?"
COM_USERS_LOGIN_RESET="Forgot your password?"

It is a module, you could change the following language strings that are available in the file en-GB.mod_login.ini that is located in the directory \language\en-GB.

Code: Select all

MOD_LOGIN_FORGOT_YOUR_PASSWORD="Forgot your password?"
MOD_LOGIN_FORGOT_YOUR_USERNAME="Forgot your username?"

You have to change the text within Double Quotes.

Suggest using the language override technique as documented at http://docs.joomla.org/International_Enhancements_for_Version_1.6#Language_String_Overrides.

If you are using Joomla! 2.5, you could create language overrides in the Language Manager itself. Click on the tab Overrides for this.

You may have to change the following files:
(a) Forgot your password: - default.php that is located in the directory \components\com_users\views\reset\tmpl
(b) Forgot your username: - default.php that is located in the directory \components\com_users\views\remind\tmpl

Being core Joomla! files, suggest following the override technique as documented at http://docs.joomla.org/How_to_override_the_output_from_the_Joomla!_core.

imanickam,

you are truly a master, if I may ask just one more thing, can I make my content area full screen or fluid to re-size with the browser? Thank you so much for your generosity, I truly appreciate it.

Kelly

In the place of text (e.g., Forgot your password?), have you tried to have the img tag (e.g., <img src="smiley.gif" alt="Smiley face" height="42" width="42" />)?

no I will try that and do you know how to expand the content area to full size or make it transparent so I can use different backgrounds for different pages?

Thanks so much for all your help

I figured it out, I just commented out the active link section in my css file, but what I cannot find anywhere is, how to make the content area full screen or be able to have different backgrounds in the content area for different pages

Good... Glad to see that you could sort out things.

It is a good practice to create new topic for each of the questions you have. That way, you could keep track of them and also, it helps to keep the focus of the discussion.

Thank you for all your help, I have tried to post separate questions but no one seems to know anything about what I'd like to do with expanding the content area and being able to add different backgrounds for each separate.

As you may be aware, the people who answer the questions in these forums, the people who manage these forums, and the people who moderate these forums are all volunteers just like you and me.

So, sometimes, getting response to a question may be delayed.

Hope you understand.
