How to make changes to the text customers see


Ladydeb

Recommended Posts

HI There,

 

I have tried and failed to understand which paths to follow in order to be able to alter text on my site.

 

I want to change simple things like - when a customer gets to the 'choose a payment method' page...I want to change the Paypal option to Credit/Debit Card or Paypal.

Also, some of the Americanised spellings need to be changed, ie..cheque instead of check...various other niggly bits too.

 

The problem is I can find text that LOOKS like its the right thing to change..but am SCARED that I change it and it messes something up.

 

Is there a definitive way to tell if you've gone to the correct php file or whatever and changed the right text?

 

Is there a simple system so I know that certain things get changed in this section, different things in another section?

 

I know this is all ABC to you guys, but when you just don't know how it works, then it looks so complicated to the novice - ME....lol

 

Anyway, hope someone can push me in the right direction...it would be most appreciated...

 

Thanks :)

Debs

Hi

It depends on the text you need to change, if in doubt, make a duplicate copy of you site as a back up you can use if things go wrong.

If you would like more specific help feel free to mail me.

Hope this helps

Regards
