How to rename "karma" into something else

This discussion is related to the Karma Bank addon.

Hi guys,
Thank you to the developer for this fantastic add-on, really appreciate that.

My query is about changing the name (localizing if you wish) the "Karma" concept. For a forum site we operate which is about a community site, we want to use another word than karma, like "Vote" or "Reputation". How can we do it?
Best of the best regards

    Welcome to the community!

    What version of Vanilla are you running?

    You are probably looking for Locales.

    The following definitions are all I found in a cursory grep through the source code of 0.9.6.6b:

    • "%01.2f Karma"
    • "%01.2f"
    • 'Balance'
    • 'Date'
    • 'Date.DefaultFormat'
    • 'Date.DefaultTimeFormat'
    • 'Disabled'
    • 'Enabled'
    • 'Karma Bank Settings'
    • 'Karma Bank'
    • 'Karma'
    • 'Make transaction of'
    • 'Meta'
    • 'Remove'
    • 'Reward / Tax'
    • 'Settings/Rules'
    • 'Show Balance with Comment Author Meta'
    • 'Transaction'
    • 'You do not have any Karma yet.'

    EDIT - Formatting.

  • Hi,
    Thanks for the response.

    My version is 2.0.18.8 and as you said, I've already done all customizations through thişs method. However, "Karma" is sooo generic that I couldn't dare to touch any of them in a fear to crack the code!

    So, a specific line or class in locale.php would be perfect.

    I listed all translate-able strings in use in version 0.9.6.6b. Pick out all the ones you want changed and put the definitions in your conf/locale.php file.

    E.g.

    $Definition['Have no fear.'] = 'Changing locale definitions won\'t break anything!';

  • The problem is 'Karma' string is generic and I've changed all possible of them without any luck - so probably it is hard coded somewhere

  • post an image of what you see and circle want you to change, we can't guess.
    Actually we could guess, but then we would be guessing, instead of helping you.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    Do you have all of these definitions set?

    $Definition['Karma Bank Settings'] = 'Reputation Bank Settings';
    $Definition['Karma Bank'] = 'Reputation Bank';
    $Definition['Karma'] = 'Reputation';
    $Definition['You do not have any Karma yet.'] = 'You don\'t have a reputation yet.';

  • delete your ini files in /cache if your definitions don't update properly.

  • Hi guys,
    1. I have included above definitions into locale.php
    2. Uncached Firefox
    3. Deleted all ini at cache

    Still, "Karma" name is there - see attached

  • did you use the definition above?

    you need to translate

    KarmaBank.NumberFormatKarma -> %01.2f Something

    grep is your friend.

  • Great! It worked! Thank you very much :))))
    Love you!

  • Feel bad bringing back a post from 2013 back to life, but I can't find locale.php

    The folder is http://www.yoursite.com/locales/, you simply create a new PHP file xxxx.php in that folder and enable it in the dashboard. :)
