    I honestly don’t know where all the instances for this is (plus “wire” appears in the urls, etc.). First start would be checking out the bp_wire_setup_nav function in bp-wire.php file in mu-plugins.php. That at least would change the menu names. Then I would imagine you would have change text in the BuddyPress user themes…

    Would it not be a good idea to create a new/clone plugin to replace the bp-wire plugin? Or am I missing something?

    It is possible to change the wire name, it takes a while to go through the files but i did this for the blogs links too.

    Just don’t change the URL’s or function names or else you will run into trouble.

    Just look for where the scripts print out the word wire. The code is logical and organised so its not hard to find, just takes a while as there is quite a lot of code.

    Problem is, when there is an update its very likely all your changes will be undone.

    You could create a custom translation file and rename everything how you like.

    You can use poedit. it generates a mo-file automatically when you save. If you dont want to edit in poedit you can just open the .pot or .po file in a text-editor of your choice. save the file when you are done as a .po-file. open the file in poedit and choose ‘save as’. that should be it.

    To create a custom translation file just for the purpose of label changes, see my instructions in http://buddypress.org/forums/topic.php?id=1877#post-9927.

    To be honest, that’s all I did with my translation was change “Wire” to “Wall” for the BuddyPress setup at Tucson Digital Arts Community.

    Follow-up: I’ve posted a better instruction set with code examples: Customizing Labels, Messages, and URLs.

    @Socialpreneur, I didn’t design it — Tim Bowen of Creative Slice did the visual theme modifications. But thanks! It’s a strong community and BuddyPress has been the perfect fit for us.
