Group Admin, title change.

  • 5609856

    Okay, so I’m making a site for a client, and he asked me to change the word Groups to Cells, easy right? WRONG.

    I spent a great amount of time going through files changing the proper things to Cells from Groups, and the most painful one, was the little yellow box below the Admin List on a group that says “Group Admin”

    HOWEVER, I managed to find it, and change it!

    But now the client wants Cells, to be Groups again :(.

    I was actually not that frustrated, mainly because it was easier changing it back than it was changing it. YET!! I’m having trouble finding that last little yellow box again! I honestly think I’ve gone through every file within wp-content. But maybe I’ve missed it… somehow.

    Please, if anyone knows where to find this, please save me.

    The link above is a picture of the little yellow box.

    well,It is coming from database I hope so.

    You can see it in the table ‘wp_bp_groups_members’

    That field of your interest in the table is “user_title”

    Hope it helps.

    Have a look at this topic about changing built in vergiage. Probably would have saved you some time. ;)


    Thanks, I actually did see that article (or one like it) but it didn’t work for me for some reason.

    I’ll definitely look into that next time.

    I guess you don’t know how to change the little yellow box.

    Unable to restore the core files?


    I would prefer to not because I’ve adjusted some other things, which I now wish I had done without going into the core, but if I have to then I’ll restore them.

    In \plugins\buddypress\bp-groups\bp-groups-templatetags.php on line 654 change to

    <span class=”activity”><?php echo $admins[$i]->user_title ?></span>

    and it should give default value i.e Group Admin


    Well… my line 654 already was that, but I resaved it anyway, and… it’s fixed.

    So, I don’t know if it was just taking some time to update, or if that resave fixed it, but…

    Thank you everyone.

    And thank you sumanshrestha, I think…
