XF 1.5 Changing/Saving Phrase Help


Active member
I've used xenforo before and haven't had an issue when editing a phrase, however, I can't seem to get my edits to change and save. It signals that the change has been successful but does not actually change within the forum.

Example... I want to change the "sub-forum" phrase to sub-listings but when I do it only changes in the ACP but not the forum.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Do you have multiple languages installed? Perhaps you are editing the wrong one. Either that or you are editing the wrong phrase.

Hi Jake... just english on a new install. I'm certain I'm editing the correct phrase. To be certain, I went back and tried to change several phrases to test and none of them are changing despite getting a successful change notice. This is a new install with no add-ons.

Hey Jake, Oddly, came back today, logged in, tried it again the exact same way and it worked this time. Not sure what happened.
