    @markb1439

    Hi All,

    I want to set up a business-oriented BP site, primarily for business networking. I think it might be more appropriate to use the word “Contacts” instead of “Friends.” Can the be accomplished easily? About how many places do I need to change the word in the code?

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Change translations

    Edit mu-plugins/bp-friends.php, mu-plugins/bp-friends/bp-friends-notifications.php, mu-plugins/bp-friends/bp-friends-templatetags.php,mu-plugins/bp-friends/bp-friends-widgets.php and the files in the member-themes/buddypress-member/friends…it may take a little while, but you have to look for places where it says “Friends” and change it to “Contacts”. There is also one more place you have to change my friends for the activity navigation, look in mu-plugins/bp-activity.php. I did it all manually. I am building a site for business usage as well. The great thing about buddypress is the files are easily customizable. I hope this helps.

    I’d just hate to be responsible for upgrading your install.

    Actually I do it all myself so it is pretty easy…

    I changed all the Groups to Projects on my site. http://www.mymakespace.com/

    Basically I just search through all the group files until I eliminated all the main labels.

    I still have not figured out how to change http://url/groups/ to http://url/projects/.
