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 want to do this the also and change groups into spots for my spots kenya project…
is it possible for there to be a way to change this in the admin… that would be realy ace
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/.
