 Changing the word ARTICLES on Main Menu, Toolbars
 Posted on: 12/22/03 at 14:58:02

Hello, I'm testing out WebApp for a redesign of our website, http://www.jaytv.com... external link

We have a bit more time before we make the site 'public,' and any comments or help would be much appreciated!!

Anyways, I'd like to try to change the word ARTICLES to CONCERTS on the menus.  I've installed Menu Manager, and looked through ALL the code of the site, and can't figure out how to change the names of those main categories.  When I go into Menu Manager, the variable assigned is $nav{'004'} (Articles).  What original .cgi file do I look at to either add another category or change the name of Articles?  Also, when I tried to add another category, also called $nav{'004'} (Articles), it just didn't show up on the main menu.  Very confused at the moment.

Thanks for your help! cool

I suggest that you install the menu Manager mod.
This can be found here.

Sorry, but thats what he said he had done (installed the Menu Manager mod).
Changing the word "Articles" is done in Your language file.
Open it in a text editor (not Word or Word pad) and change to Your liking.

Yes I hadn't noticed.

I explained in another post by him that these are in the language file.

I'm confused ... confused
What does the Menu Manager Mod have to do with changing this selection?
I FTP'd to my site and found 'Articles' in my '/public_html/cgi-bin/lang/english.lng' file. I then changed this to 'Concerts'.
Now just make your changes to the called pages.

You know, sometimes people get confused by the fact that Menu Mod is for changing menus, not the caption of core menus. I did the same misstake when I started to work with WebApp...
To be honest, he could have changed the call to "$nav{'004'}" with "Concert" and have the same result actually. However, it's alot easier to change the lang file since it take care of all instances that it is used...

I think this is the way to go. I found 29 instances of "$nav{'004'}" within a bare bones install of WebAPP.
