How to change a word that’s already in the right language

  • josnierop



    As you can see in this image:

    The word ‘Gebruikersnaam’ on the register page doesn’t display on one line. I want to change it to ‘Naam’ so it fits. I can’t seem to figure out how to do that. I’ve looked in the documentation but I think I don’t know enough about it.

    Hope someone can help me out

  • Goede middag Jos,

    The translation is done centrally and changing it would change it for everybody in the (Dutch speaking) world. If you think it should be changed, feel free to join the #polyglots channel on the Dutch local slack that you can find on

    If you want to change it only for your own website, I would just change the width adding some extra CSS like:

    .bbp-login-form label {
        width: 150px;

    (you might need the !important to make it work)




    Hey Pascal,

    That actually worked 🙂

    Thank you so much. I don’t know anything about CSS, it always suprises me when it works.

    Have a good day,


    Hi @josnierop,

    I know the basics and that has always been useful. Happy to see you’re fixed.

    PS. Kom gerust op de Nederlandse chat voor verdere of algemene vragen, we zijn niet allemaal WordPress/bbPress nerds daar 🙂
