Hello and welcome! Today, I am going to show you how to change any of the language strings in Dolphin 7. Dolphin utilizes language strings to simplify the translation of your site into any language you desire. In this example, we are going to change the “Copyright 2011 Your Company” in the sites footer to the name of our actual company.
First, we will log in to our Dolphin admin. Once there, click “languages settings” under the “settings” tab on the left menu bar.
Type in part of what you are looking to change in the “look for” bar under “manage keys”. Now, place a check beside “search”.
Now, all the strings containing what we searched for will be displayed. I searched for “your company” and there is only one language key containing that phrase, so our search only turned up one result. Put a check mark next to the result you want to edit and click “Edit”.
Change the text in the popup window to meet your needs and click “Save”.
The last step is to recompile the language file. Under the “Languages” section, put a check next to “Select All” and then click “Compile”.
Done! Now we can see the fruits of our labor.
You can use this technique to change just about any text on your site, so it comes in handy for multiple things! Until next time, thanks for reading!
