XF 1.4 How do I replace "member" or "guest" with ...


Well-known member
Way way .. way back ... in the ages of phpNuke and PostNuke .. it was easy to replace "member" with something else .. as well as "guest" with something.

I looked in phrases and didn't find a simple way of replacing things. What is the best way to get the following look?

guest === flightless bird
guests === flightless birds
member === penguin
members === penguins

This would show up in sidebar statistics, registration, etc.

Am I missing something obvious? o_O

Thanks @Maru - I changed the phrase "online_now_x_members_y_guests_z_robots_a" and did a search for 'guest' to change some. Now I'll look at your method.

Sadly - @Maru - that is only for the User Titles. I'm looking at the phrases used throughout the forum. The words "member" is used in the sidebar, etc. But it was worth a shot.

Almost everything is phrased so it's just a case of editing the phrases to suit.
Yep. There are numerous "members" phrases so I was hoping for a fast method. I'm just plodding through them ... one by one ...

Thank you.
