Re: Rename/Change default components
The easiest way to change the name of a component through the entire site is going to be to modify the buddypress-en_US.po and buddypress-en_US.mo files, search for the instances of the words you want to replace, and change them there.
That will allow you to change the prepackaged strings that come bundled with BuddyPress. So if you want to change the phase “Your new avatar was uploaded successfully” to “Your new photo was uploaded successfully” that is the way to do it, without modifying the BuddyPress core files.
The same works with the components. Change “Groups” to “Developers” and then change “Group Invites” to “Developers Wanted” or whatever…
