Hello,

On my question page, one of the navigation buttons has the text "Exit and clear survey"

How do I change this text? I imagine that I can find the css for styling it (I haven't really looked yet), but I really want to change the text. I've looked at a few template.js files but can't find what I need.

thanks

Two options:

1) Customize the translation - manual.limesurvey.org/How_to_translate_L...existing_translation

2) Add something like this to the end of template.js:
$(document).ready(function(){
	var clearallText = 'Some new button text';
	$('input.clearall').attr('value', clearallText);
});

Hey T -
why doesn't this work to change the Previous button's text?

$(document).ready(function()
{
var clearallText = 'Some new button text';
$('#moveprevbtn').attr('value',clearallText);
});

Assuming you are using LS 2.0 and have not disabled the jQuery UI buttons, try this:

$(document).ready(function(){
 
	var previousText = 'Some new button text';
	$('#moveprevbtn .ui-button-text').text(previousText);
 
});

I am in 2.0+ and have not disabled the jQuery UI buttons, but perhaps my there is somethign in my template preventing this from working. I'm using a clear_logo clone with no additional js scripting.

I used this similar post as well to no avail...

Can you activate a test survey?

You have a JavaScript error on line 65 of template.js preventing any subsequent script from running.

Hmm...
That is in the dead center of the Function Correct PNG. I haven't touched it. Surely the template doesn't ship with an error in the JS.

I commented the function out...and now all works perfectly.
Thank you again.
