How to edit title on page in buddypress activate template
Hi my title on the page after a user registers still says ‘check your email to activate your account’, which I want to change to something else and could not find out where in the templates to do so. I was originally looking in the activate.php file. It’s for the page’s entry title.
I’m trying to avoid another plugin for this. I was already able to change all text other than the page title language for the activate portion. Any idea where I can edit the code for that rather than using a mo file?
You don’t need to use the plugin, it simply copies the new .mo file into the right directory on your site, it just helps when you are editing a large number of plugins. all you need it Poedit and typing skills
Sorry I’m not familiar or comfortable using that method. Is there another way? I’m not sure why my page title section would pull in that snippet of text when I’ve taken it out of the activate.php main text body.
Edit the .pot file direct? But it will get overwritten next update
Isn’t there a file or js script that calls for changing the activate page title? I just need to be able to drag that into my child theme buddypress folder and edit it or at least use css to hide that title from appearing once a user submits the form, you know?
@venutius is right; a .mo file is the way to go. Check out this article which should help get you started:
Won’t this get overwritten after updates?
The .mo file should go in this folder wp-content/languages/plugins
The wp-content folder won’t get overwritten. That’s where all of your content is kept.
SO I’m Only uploading the .mo file?
Just tested it, worked great..just a lot of reading. Can I ask another question that I’m still waiting on an answer for, for some time… how come my user does not get an email once the admin activates their profile on the backend? Is there a workaround so they get an automatic update to their email?
