I'm not sure, what exactly you mean, but if it is only regarding the terms used, you can change them in the appropriate language file:

XOOPS_ROOT/modules/system/language/YOUR_LANG/blocks.php

Just replace the string, after the constant. Example

define("_MB_SYSTEM_VACNT","View Account");


define("_CONSTANT""The constant gets replaced with this string, in the actual mod code.");


...instead of 'View Account' you just want 'Check Yourself'...

define("_MB_SYSTEM_VACNT","Check Yourself");


HTH

Re: Changing Menu names

THANK YOU for your help that worked and thank you for laying it out in a very clear way.

Where do I go to do the same thing for the "main Menu"?
or to add NEW menu's like the ones on this site like "Development" etc?

David, you asked me the same thing by PM and I answered you! To make a custom menu, you'll need a module such as Imenu or use a custom block.

Or you just create a custom block (Sys Admin -> Blocks)....much easier and quicker

1. The names in the main menu are the module names. You can change them in System Admin->modules ... just change the text under the module icon and hit 'submit'.

2. Another option for creating a second menu, in addition to the tips posted here already, is the multimenu module.

Instead of answering PM's, do what I did:

- check profile
- see if question has been posted in forums
- answer in forum

If this hasn't been the case, advise to post in forums.

We are doing volunteer support here, from which (in my opinion) all should profit!

We can't complain about people not searching and looking on their own, if the information is not made public.

Further, there is much to much happening 'behind closed doors' in this community - I believe. That's one of the reasons for some critical thoughts being posted in the announcement of the XOOPS Foundation.


Sorry if I sound lecturing, but it's not meant that way, just a friendly post of my thoughts on the subject

Jason,
I fully agree. He must have posted the question while I was replying to his PM. I don't consider myself to be knowledgeabe enough to answer anyone's question by PM that somebody else could answer better in a forum post, unless it happens to be about my own themes or modules :) which I feel responsible for. As you said, the community benefits if the question is asked and answered in an open forum anyhow.
