Active member
Since we moved from vB, members are used to of 'threads' and 'posts'. 'Discussions' and 'messages' are confusing them. So which phrases to edit to replace these so all mentions of 'discussions' and 'messages' are replaced with 'threads' and 'posts' without messing up anything else? So, asking the experts about the exact phrases that I need to edit.

You can search for text within phrases using the "Search Phrases" page in the Admin CP.

Search for "discussions" in the text field and all the phrases which contain discussions are the ones you need to edit. Repeat for "messages".

Never change the phrase titles (if available). Just the text.
