How can I change spelling?

Post by ralfeez » Fri Sep 05, 2008 10:57 pm

I am trying to locate where several variables are defined so that I can change the British English spelling to American English spelling. Words like 'favourite', 'authorised', 'colour', etc. are just driving my customers crazy. Sorry Brits, but I need to make these corrections soon. Where are _NOT_AUTH and _DO_LOGIN defined?
Thanks

Yes , yourjoomlafolder/language/english.php

Line 27 , 28 :
DEFINE('_NOT_AUTH','You are not authorised to view this resource.');
DEFINE('_DO_LOGIN','You need to login.');
---
Make sure to make a copy first of this file , always make a backup before modifying.

Hello,

Instead of creating a new thread, I decided this might apply here...

I would like to include a link to the registration page when these are invoked:
DEFINE('_NOT_AUTH','You are not authorised to view this resource.');
DEFINE('_DO_LOGIN','You need to login.');

I tried this to no avail:

Code: Select all

DEFINE('_DO_LOGIN','You need to Register or Login. If you are not registered, please <a href=\"http://firesafetyconsultinggroup.com/component/option,com_comprofiler/task,registers/ target=\"_parent\">Register Here</a>');
I've searched for a solution, but haven't stumbled upon something...
Any direction is appreciated,
Jim
