_INTRO_STD_TEXT

Post by aphlat »

How can I change the _INTRO_STD_TEXT and _INTRO_STD_TEXT_TITLE?

I changed xml_language/lang[english].xml but the main login page has not changed. It still shows the "...corporate and higher education..." default.
<key id="login&amp;_INTRO_STD_TEXT_TITLE" attributes="" save_date="2019-02-01 16:30:13"><![CDATA[Providing education]]></key>

Settings -> Language Management
does not have an ability to add a "key"

Clicking Add only lists the fields for Language, Description, Reading Orientation, and Browser

Hi Aphlat,
you don't have to change the xml file... That's what comes with the installation and it's the default language with default labels.
Then, in your second message, you are in the correct section but need one more step.
From the list of languages, of course you can only add one language. If you click on the "translate" button then you are able to customize your file.
But you don't need to add keys. As the default wording says, you just need to reach the "Login" module and the "_intro_std_text_title" key

Or if you prefere, look for the text "corporate and higher" in the searchbox.

you can edit everything inline.

Also, please know that you cannot just "add" keys and expect that they appear somewhere.
The way the system works, every label should already be mapped in the language file. It might be that we forgot to add some label, in that case one can add it, provided he finds out the module name and the key name (normally you can find out by inspecting the page).

Hi Max

Thank you for the guidance.
The step I was missing was clicking on "Translate" once in the Language section.

Cheers

Here's a step-by-step with screenshots.
I was a real noob trying to do this. I had no idea how to find the "keys."

1. In the admin tool go to Settings>Language Management
Image

2. Look to the right and you'll see a "bullet list" icon. Click on the one next to the number (2737 in my example)
Image

3. Now you can search for the key. I searched for "_INTRO"
Image

4. Click in the Translation column of the field you want to change. You can then type whatever you want including HTML links (be careful) and then SAVE
Image

Hope this helps. I know how hard it is for awesome software developers to transform into trainers.
Ciao y'all 8-)
