Topic-icon How to change text in log-in form

4 years 11 months ago #16565 by ardjanbos

I've been roaming through different public_HTML/Language/en-GB files, because I want to change:

1. The words in the 'login form': Username, Password, Remember me.
2. The text underneath: Forgot your password? Forgot your username etc.
3. The text 'carty empty' 'show cart' etc.

Which files am I looking for? Can anyone point me in the right direction?


Thank you SO much!

Copy that folder to your computer locally. Get Total Commander

Use Command->Search, "Find text" option to locate right files.

Hi Milos (thanks for your quick reply),

I do know how to download, edit and upload files again with FileZilla (I work with TextEditor....being a Mac user and all)

So, I think I have been changing text in the right folder, but it doesn't have an effect.

For instance, I know the 'log-in module' words (username, password, remember me, forgot your password etc.) I was writing about in my first post are to be found in the libraries/language/en-GB/en-GB.mod_login.ini

MOD_LOGIN_FORGOT_YOUR_PASSWORD="Forgot your password?"
MOD_LOGIN_FORGOT_YOUR_USERNAME="Forgot your username?"
MOD_LOGIN_REGISTER="Create an account"

Let's say I want to change the words "Remember me" to its Dutch counterpart "Onthoud mij".

I changed these words in the different lines but it does not show in the front end ( ). Do I have to adjust the PHP file in the MOD_LOGIN folder?

You probably think I am absolutely simpleminded, but this is the first time I work with scripts of any kind. Sorry to bother you again.

If it has label changing right ini will do. Maybe it does not have effect if you are using other language than english, then you need to create language folder for ini files in that language (you need to make copy of en-GB/ with different name). ini file in module folder does not have effect. MOD_LOGIN is core joomla module so 100% there is label. You can open its files to see what is label it should look like this:
