Where is: your_date_of_birth_is_required


I'd like to modify the statement that currently reads: "Your date of birth is required" during the new user sign up.

I found the template file "register_form" and it has the code:
    <dl class="ctrlUnit OptOut">
        <dt>{xen:phrase date_of_birth}:</dt>
            <xen:include template="helper_birthday_input">
                <xen:map from="$fields" to="$user" />
            <xen:if is="{$dobRequired}"><p class="explain">{xen:phrase your_date_of_birth_is_required}</p></xen:if>
Where can I edit the text used for "your_date_of_birth_is_required" as I believe that is what I need to edit. Right?

Why am I doing this?
I have received a number of complaints from new users or potential users of my site that do not like the date of birth requirement. The average age of my users is around 50, so a slightly different demographic then some. Anyhow, they seem to have some trust issues and do not like giving out this information.I'd like to attempt to explain COPPA to new users why we require the DOB, and that they can hide this DOB using their user settings.

It's a phrase in the ACP under the Appearance tab. Look in the left menu, click Phrases, then type in your_date_of_birth_is_required.


Thank you!! I knew I was missing something simple. I'm so used to other software not being friendly. :)
