Renaming Showcase to something else...

    Hello, I wanna start with saying that this addon is absolutely badass. It's pretty much doing everything I could've asked for in a "garage" add-on. One thing I can't seem to find, which a search on XenForo has turned up an outdated solution, is how I can rename my Showcase to Garage or something similar? Both in the NavTab up top and also when on the main page of the Showcase...?

    Hi @Postal , this is exactly what I've done.

    http://www.z22se.co.uk/garage/

    The showcase it all phrased, you I've been through and changed all the below phrases to replace showcase with Garage

    You then need to change the route filters to point all requests to showcase to garage

    @MattW , do I just click PHRASES in the ACP, do a search for "showcase" and then go through each and individual one and erase showcase out of "Phrase Text" and put in garage, then click save?

    The list I put up is all the phrases, and the title of the phrase you need to edit. Navigate to each phrase and then like you said, edit and change the phrase to change showcase to garage

    The good thing is that phrases don't change much. I do add new ones and there are cases that do require phrases to change, so you will need to keep an eye on them when you upgrade. I will be trying to eliminate the word showcase from phrases as much as possible so that it cuts down on the amount of phrases you will need to change to re brand the addon.

    Thanks for this thread it's very helpful!
    I've changed my phrases but in regards to the last three Route Filters, I'm getting the following error "the replace route must start with a route prefix." Instead of "garage" my replacement is "rate-&-review" so I gather I need to add some prefix?

    What have you entered for the Find Route value?

    Maybe it's because I didn't replace with a single word?

    you'd have to ask Mike, but I am pretty sure that & in a route is not going to work.

    I'd just remove the & and have the route as rate-review. As that route will become the URL, you shouldn't really be using & in there.

    If you look at what adding an & to a node title does when using friendly URLs, XF removes the & and adds a - in there

    Thank you very much Matt and Bob removing the "&" did it.

    Now I've learnt another thing about URLs soon I'll be dangerous... ;)

    This thread helped me, thanks. There's no auto way to replace Showcase with X right?

    No, Bob did mention previously he was investigating a way to try and make the phrasing more dynamic.

    I am trying to rename everything currently and when I went to phrases and searched for "showcase" I get 6806 results. Please tell me I don't have to go through that many files to change the name. Is this thread up to date for version 1.3.1? I want to make sure I do it right, but I am also hoping I don't have to clear a weekend to complete this task. TIA!

    Showcase CURRENTLY (there will be more in this next versions) has 446 nflj_showcase_ phrases (those are ones that I create for the addon). XenForo itself also creates some phrases for various things like Options and Permissions, so there are a hand full of those as well. Out of the 446 self created phrases, 154 of them have the word 'showcase' in them. A lot of those are for the Admin CP in which you really shouldn't need to bother with. There are also phrases for XenPorta Blocks and BD Widgit Framework renderers, so if you don't use those, you won't have to bother with them.

    Here is the list of current phrases:

    Thanks Bob, this will make it much easier on me to go through and rename. I appreciate the help and the list!

    No problem :) Im sure 150 is a much better number to deal with than 6000 :D
