Support » Plugins » Replace the word “blog” with “CMS” in admin pages

  • Resolved tau_ceti


    I want to use WordPress as a CMS for a support website, but in the admin section and the registration area, it says “blog” everywhere. I want to make sure it’s all forwards-compatible, so I don’t want to go into every back end page and find-replace for the word. Is there a plugin available to filter words on admin/registration pages? I did a search for something along that line, but didn’t find anything.

  • You might find some means of editing the admin pages, but in the meantime, here is an alternative:

    There’s a lot of free, advanced find-and-replace text file utilities out there, where you can designate a whole series of files to do a mass find and replace operation.

    Visit and search for “find and replace”

    The thing is, someone else may be managing this site in the future. I don’t want to make any changes to the wordpress code in case it gets overwritten when it’s upgraded.

    That’s ok, they’ll get in trouble for changing it to blog! 🙂

    The wordpress admin has it’s own theme. You could write your own theme, or duplicate the existing one and modify it. That should hopefully make it *fairly* upgrade proof.

    Awesome, thanks!

    I just installed the Tiger Admin plugin and tried to attach a filter to it, but I can’t find any hooks that attach to admin display. I looked through wp-register.php and found the following sort of code:

    _e('Go back to the blog')

    Obviously the intent is to allow it to be modified, but I’m not sure how to attach a filter to ‘_e’. I can’t even find where the function is. I’ve never seen it before, so I don’t know if it’s native to PHP or not.

    I just found _e(). Fortunately, I need to run the website in English and French anyway, so I’ll just install an English and French .mo, edit them both and then use the Polyglot plugin for everything else. Resolved!
