[resolved] How to rename/define/change standard section headers (7 posts)

    On my front page above the excerpts of my recent posts it's written "Recent Posts", formatted by the .section-header class in the styles.css file.

    I can change colour, size etc. but I have no idea where to change the words of this title. I want to to be "Latest News" or else instead of "Recent Posts".

    Any ideas how or where to do that?

    FYI: I'm using the "Options" theme.

    Thanks in advance

    Any chance of a link? This will be called from index.php. If you can use a find tool "<Ctrl>+<F>" you can use this to find "Recent Posts" and change it to "Latest News". It will either be written out as <hN>This</hN> or <hN><?php _e("Recent Posts"); ?></hN> where N is 1, 2, 3 or 4. There may not be an <hN> but there will be a <div class="section-header"> preceding it.

    I did that already, a search through nearly all of the files in my theme, and didn't find any "Recent Posts" to replace. It's got the class of "section-header", defined in the styles.css:

    .section-header {
    font-size: 1.1em;
    font-weight: bold;
    color: #333;
    padding: .5em 1.5em;
    margin: 0 0 3px 0;
    height: 15px;
    background: url(images/section-star.gif) no-repeat left .5em;

    Maybe it's possible to define there something concrete for the excerpts on the front page? My page in work is http://ethrill.net/wordpress

    The index.php in the Options theme consists of:

    <?php /* What WordPress themes should be like. */ ?>

    and nothing more.

    Thanks in advance.

    In your source code the following is printed:
    <h2 class="section-header">Recent Posts</h2>

    Rather than index.php look for a homepage template such as main.php, hometemp.php or home.php. Somewhere the text will be printed out - it won't be in the CSS as that doesn't control the text, only what it looks like and the little star icon.

    None of the theme's files contain "Recent".

    Maybe it's in the "Recent" widget or the "Excerpts" plugin?

    I found it out !
    It was in the includes/excerpts.php !
    Thanks for your time!

    Good. Not sure what post-sections.php was referring to then. Revert to the original of post-sections.php for safety's sake then.
