I don't need this myself, but wow! That's pretty cool.  Smiley

Long ago I added text to a system message as follows (after registered members only):

Code
Select All
System Information

Sorry, this service is for registered members only. However, membership is free, so please become a member by clicking Register on the menu above.  



On a related note, through the Admin Center, I love that we admins can easily edit the automated email messages that people get. That feature is very convenient, and user friendly.

It would be great to be able to make easy user friendly edits in the same way with system messages.  Wink

  

Morning, noon, or night, have a great one!

I believe you can - but make sure you don't use any single quotes in the text line unless you escape them with a back-slash. Use this \' , not this '. Otherwise you will break it.

Thanks, that is worth knowing but I mean the text that says "Only Registered Members are allowed to access this forum.
Please login below or click -here- to register an account"


Same file

Code
Select All
'633' => 'Warning!',
'634' => 'Only Registered Members are allowed to access this forum.',
'635' => 'Please login below or click',
'636' => '-here-', 



Cheers

If you mean at the top of the board where it says:

Quote:
Welcome, Guest. Please Login or Register


This you will find in the file:

cgi-bin/yabb2/Languages/English/Main.lng

Look for

Code
Select All
'248' => 'Welcome,',
'249' => 'Please',
'316' => 'Inbox',
'317' => 'Date',
'318' => 'From',
'320' => 'Sent box',
'324' => 'To',
'377' => 'or', 



You need to download the file and edit in a text editor.

Cheers


Derek

... Not the Registration Agreement but the text that appears to tell them they need to register to access the forum ?

Thanks in advance, I am on YABB 2.5 AE
