I can't find an easy way to modify this text, from within LimeSurvey:

You must be registered to complete this survey
You may register for this survey if you wish to take part.
Enter your details below, and an email containing the link to participate in this survey will be sent immediately.


Also, we would really like to remove the "first name" and "last name" boxes: all we want to collect is the email address. Is this possible?

We'd really prefer to host the survey on LimeService (now LimeSurvey Professional), so modifying code is out - but can do it if there's no other solution.

Ah, I've solved it.

1. Copy the default template
2. On startpage.pstpl, insert this at the end of the HEAD tag:
<script>
$(function(){
$("[name=register_firstname]").parent().parent().hide()
$("[name=register_lastname]").parent().parent().hide()
});
</script>
3. On register.pstpl, replace {REGISTERMESSAGE1} and {REGISTERMESSAGE2} with whatever you want. (This wouldn't work if you needed multiple languages.)

Sweet!

Hello,

I think it is too late now, but you can change the REGISTERMESSAGE1 and REGISTERMESSAGE2 in the following folder: /application/helper/replacements_helper.php

in line 841 & 842 you can change the messages but as you said: translation to a second language is not possible this way

My question pertains to the screen a registrant sees after he/she registers.

Am I dense? (yes, but...) I can't seem to find a way to access and alternate this text and formatting. The Register.pstpl doesn't seem to contain this text. Any help anyone?

Found it.

This text is in /(your install directory)/application/controllers/RegisterController.php.

The text is in line 242. However, I'm scared to change it. And, even if I change it, it will be blown away when I update.

Are there alternatives?

Thank you,
David

Safer to modify the translation string or create a new "custom" language - manual.limesurvey.org/How_to_translate_L...existing_translation

Thank you T. As always, your advice is appreciated.

But, I simply want to change the text. I don't see how the translation editor can help.
If I could create new {replacement} fields, that might be something, but as it stands the .php sends the email upon registration and prints the text as defined above to the page.

I think I'd have to alter that function, or alter the text, in order to influence the outcome. Am I wrong?

If you create a custom language for your survey and modify that string in the language file, it will automatically be applied.

That is what $clang->gT() does.

The light is dawning.
I think I now understand this process. I downloaded and installed poedit.
I downloaded the language template file from www.limesurvey.org/translationstatus/limesurvey.pot .

Couple of questions:

Question 1. Does every entry (There are over 10,000 need a "translation" or can I simply "translate" the one(s) I want changed?

Question 2. Will LimeSurvey updates obliterate these edits? Easy workaround is to save the custom language offline and reload upon update.

1) Simply translate those you want changed.

2) If you create a custom language, it will not be affected by updates.
