Changing TITLE and CONTENT field names in Article Content manager and editor

Postby sseguin » Tue Sep 12, 2017 7:17 pm

Hello,

I am trying to Changing TITLE and CONTENT field names in Article Content manager and editor.

I have gone through the language files and the Language overrides and can not find the ones that affect in the Article Manager the TITLE and CONTENT name fields. I would like to replace the TITLE field name in Joomla Articles editor with SOURCE and CONTENT with DESCRIPTION.

Can you help point me to the correct Language Constants or the language files that control this for the administrator site? I am also looking for ALIAS on this screen as well.

In addition, what would they be for the Article Manager list of articles? (TITLE and ALIAS) or would it be the same as the above?

Thank you.

JGLOBAL_TITLE, COM_CONTENT_ARTICLE_CONTENT and JFIELD_ALIAS_LABEL.

Thanks. For the ALIAS field, there is a placeholder text. IS there the same for the TITLE field?

As SharkyKZ specified, the language constant for the text string "Title" is JGLOBAL_TITLE.

Suggest using the language override technique as documented at https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Language_Overrides_in_Joomla.
