Joomla 2.5 – Change Text via Language Overrides Tool

Problem: PayPlans Joomla Extension Subscription page heading reads: “Select to subscribe.” But the client wants it to read “Select to Join.”

Solution: How to use the Joomla 2.5 Language Overrides Tool – In Motion Hosting

Admin dashboard > (hover over) Extensions > Language Manager > Overrides > New > Search (with Value radio button selected) > Click on the Search Results (below the Search box) > Edit the text in the Text window (in the Edit this Override section) > Save.

It’s brilliant!

    Ok, but how do you know what it is? “Joomla articles” is the ACL, where is this even located? Who wants the CMS name listed all over??

      I’m not sure I understand your comment as it relates to Language Overrides (and changing text on one title on one page).
