    Which phrase controls the 'showcase' breadcrumb link?

    the same phrase as the Navigation Tab (this is core xenforo functionality).

    XF doesn't have auto find and replace option like vB?

    It has SEARCH, but not REPLACE. I've been waiting for them to add the "replace" part of it for 3 years now.

    I couldn't belive software like XF doesn't have a replace option. Shame. :( That was main translate tool in vB.
    So, to translate 'Showcase' I need to go phrase by phrase manually. Great! :)

    I hear ya. I am a bit baffled at why they have not yet added it either. They added the Export/Import functionality, but still have not touched what IMO is the most basic need for the system. Only thing you can do is find the suggestion and LIKE it so that when it comes time for them to see what people want/need, the more LIKES the better...

    Unfortunately, Yes. You will have to do that with any addon to include core Xenforo. You might be able to find someone that has already done a similar translation (for like a Garage for example) that could export their language (just from showcase) and then import it. I know a few of the "Garage guys" have done that. I've seen a few done for the RM (Resource Manager as well). It really doesn't take that long. It took me about 30 minutes to manually run through all the phrases with the term showcase (used the search to narrow down the phrase terms and then just went to town).

    that is awesome news! It is a much needed addon IMO.

    I've been thinking and came up to a completely logical solution.

    1st Export Language; Export from add-on: Showcase
    2nd Open .xml in (advanced) editor (eg. DW)
    3rd Find and replace Showcase to what ever you want. (I renamed to Garage)
    4th Import a Language; Overwrite language
    5th Import.

    It took me less than 20 seconds. :)

    If @Bob permits, I can upload XML here.

    Im sure you know this, but make sure you did this with the default language and NOT the MASTER Language (as the MASTER gets over written on upgrade).

    There are 2 language sets? I only see one which I'm guessing is the master?
  13. Bob

    Bob Developer Staff Member

    Yes, however, to access the MASTER, you need to have the site set in DEBUG MODE.

    Master Language is the HIGHEST LEVEL and it is replaced during each upgrade (to include Core XenForo upgrades). This is how CHANGES get pushed. If I make a CHANGE to a phrase for showcase and you have modified that phrase in the English (US) language, then you will get an "Outdated" phrase notice (just the same as with templates).

    The biggest mistake people make is having their site in DEBUG MODE and editing the MASTER LANGUAGE and then wonder why their phrases changed after an upgrade.

    @Bob Are you looking for an edited one? I just did it to change "Showcase" to "Reviews & Reports". Still looking at the front end, but the obvious stuff seems to be working after reimport. :)

    Why you do not use / partition?

    What different showcase between showcase/ url format?

    @Bob Searching nflj_showcase_menu_main_tab is no longer found. What do I need to do with latest showcase version to change Showcase to Reviews in the navigation bar?
