Change wording (7 posts)

    Hi, I love PMPro but I want to change the wording in the emails and on some pages... particularly the word "membership". (We are using it to offer online courses.) I have gone through the hard code for emails and changed all of the email messages to reflect what I want but then, after every update, that is all undone. Are there any plans to make this easier in the near future?

    Hey there,

    Actually, you should not be editing any core Paid Memberships Pro code as it will be overwritten after every update. The correct way to edit email templates is described here.

    You can also use the PMPro Email Templates addon to make editing these emails a bit easier actually.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks,
    Jess

    Thanks for replying Jess! I found the email templates mod which is a GREAT for emails. I also need to change the wording on the pages in the "pages" folder like: account.php, billing.php, cancel.php. Also includes/functions.php has text that doesn't fit my purpose and I've had to change that also. I understand the issue with updating the core files which is point of my post. Are there any plans to allow users of the plugin to create their own verbiage through out? This is even something I'd be willing to pay for. :)

    PMPro actually also supports custom Page templates for all of the front end pages (checkout, billing, account, etc.) so you can modify them however you want.

    What did you need to change in includes/functions.php? Most of the text is editable either through a translation file or a filter.

    Thanks! I'll read about the custom page templates. In the functions.php file, it's anything that says "member" or "membership". This is for a school that teaches a massage/detox technique and I guess the board is very picky about the wording. I'm not familiar with translation files or filters. Is there more you could share with me on that? Thanks for all of your help by the way! I really appreciate it!

    Yes! There's a basic tutorial on creating new translation files at our website. In this case, you could copy the English files and just create a translation file specifically for your site with the different language. You can use a program such as Poedit to make this really easy as well!

    Additionally, it may be easier to just do a search and replace on the_content filter for specific words if you're not changing much.
