Yet one more newb trying to change presentation

edited August 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I know this question has been asked a bunch of times. I think I have read every post on it and have tried to implment the changes per the documentation. Still not getting it to work.

I am trying to change some of the setting in the dictionary. I have placed the following in the language.php file in my conf folder.

// Custom Language Definitions
$Context->SetDefinition('ApplicationTitles', 'ABC Forum Name');
$Context->SetDefinition('ApplicationTitle', 'ABC *** application title ***');
$Context->SetDefinition('BannerTitle', '*** banner title ***');
$Context->SetDefinition('StartANewDiscussion', 'Start a new bloody discussion');


Not getting any of these settings presented in my interface. What am I missing?

thank for your help.


  • The application title, banner title, etc. can be changed from your settings. Go to Settings >>Application Settings and change the your forum's title and banner's title.

    For that:
    $Context->SetDefinition('StartANewDiscussion', 'Start a new bloody discussion');

    Just copy this to your conf/language.php file:

    $Context->Dictionary['StartANewDiscussion'] = 'Start a new bloody discussion';

  • thank you for the direction. Thought I was suppose to use the setDefinition() call. It worked.
  • SetDefinition is to set a default definition, it won't overwrite an existing one.
