Change "answer to" label on feed

  • Hi guys,

    I’m running bbPress 2.1 (plugin) and put on my blog’s sidebar an RSS parser from forum. Problem is: when it gets an answer, the label starts with “Anwser to: Topic title” — in my case, since my site is Portuguese written, “Responder a: Topic title”.

    I want to change this “Responder a:” for something shorter, like “Re:”. Do you guys have any idea where I change this behavior?

    You’ll want to customize the translation itself. It’s not a straight forward process, and you’ll need a Po/Mo editor, like PoEdit, to do it.

    I was afraid of that :-)

    Isn’t there a place/file where I could replace the string “translatable” direct on the code?

    Even if I need to do this every time plugin updates itself, I guess it’s easier than install and generate a new translating file…




    So, the functions that actually output the feeds are hooked in. Rather than hack the core, you could write a small plugin that unhooks the core feed, and hooks your custom code instead. The feed functions are at the bottom of the bbp-includes/bbp-*-functions.php files. Copy and paste those into your plugin, change the text as needed, and do the above, and you’re set.
