Change Blogs to Network in Menu
Hi, I use a theme that has a menu drop down page called ‘Blogs’. How can I change ‘Blogs’ to ‘Network’?
site is http://buddha.fm

I already have a bp-custom.php in my plugins directory
Best way is to use a language file https://codex.buddypress.org/extending-buddypress/customizing-labels-messages-and-urls/
I checked it out, and it looks problematic for me. Especially having to update the .pot file every time buddypress updates. Any other suggestions that might be a little easier?
If it’s just the link at the menu item, you can just edit the page name and slug in page edit panel, then go to Settings> Pages and choose the new blog menu name from select box and click on Save. You know you’d also have to change title of the Blogs Directory page in yoursite.com/wp-content/themes/yourthemename/blogs/index.php in this line
The ‘blogs’ page does not show in menus or pages because it is a buddypress page. I looked at the link and it is unclear to me what you are referencing. The window opens on line 21 but I am not certain what you are pointing at.
@buddhatunes the “blogs” page with regards to BP is the Blogs Directory page which only shows up if you have gone multisite (created a network). Unless you’re referring to something else entirely ….
Ok, decided to download poedit and create a .po and .mo file, then uploaded to root/wp-content/languages/…
The .po file automatically created a .mo file upon close, but the file size of the .mo is only 565 compared to 156,145 for the .po file – makes me think I did not generate correctly.
Also, changed ‘blogs’ to ‘network’ in root/wp-content/themes/yourthemename/blogs/index.php on line 14 –
It looks like a lot of the language changes are there but the menu title is still the same – ‘Blogs’
== but the menu title is still the same – ‘Blogs’ ==
What theme are you using? Just to clarify which dropdown “menu” are you referring to – the one from the admin bar or in main navigation (where btw you can change the name blogs in Appearance > Menus if your theme supports custom menu)?
The problem with changing the name blogs in Appearance>Menus is that it is a Buddypress dropdown — under the title ‘Community’ with ‘Activity’, ‘Members’, ‘Groups’, & ‘Blogs’ underneath it.
The Buddypress drop down does not show in Appearance>Menus.
I don’t have a copy of the premium theme. If you also cannot change the menu generated in the theme’s header.php then you should contact theme developer/vendor to make the changes, probably in functions.php file.
