@crazycells yes, I’ve just seen that and modified the post. It seems to only happen if you have a space between the “greater than” symbol and the actual text.
Clearly a markdown thing.
For some accounts the email asking for account email validation never arrived (particularly with gmail)
In v2 this would show a warning now and again, but in v3 you can’t get past the signin page. It asks for email address / password, and again the email doesnt come to inbox or spam
Ive temporarily turned off requiring email validation. I want to change the text message it shows. Because it says “Email this is optional…”
I want to reword that as would like people to enter an email, even if its not validated.
I cant find the large file that has the list of all the codes and corresponding messages sent to users.
Does anyone know what that file is called and location?
@Panda a couple of questions
In relation to the file you need to edit - I’d recommend against this as subsequent upgrades will override the changes you make so you’d have to do this each time.
You should consider installing
nodebb-plugin-customize as this will allow you to edit files via NodeBB itself and will remain during upgrades.
Ok, so I know it was against your advice anyway, but I located the language files in public and did want to edit a couple of the messages in the short-term, but there is a README file there saying dont!
# The files here are not meant to be edited directly Please see the → [Internalization README](../README.md) # Important note about localising NodeBB The files here are read-only and overwritten daily (if there are changes) by the helper bot [Misty](https://github.com/nodebb-misty). Our localisation efforts are handled via [our Transifex Project](https://explore.transifex.com/nodebb/nodebb/), and any pull requests made to this directory will be automatically closed because localisations can go out-of-sync when edited directly. If there are non-localised strings and you cannot find them in Transifex, please [open a new issue on our bug tracker]
This leads me to another question. How can something externally be ‘updating files daily’ on my server without my permission (if Im understanding that correctly?)

It’s not. Those files have come from
github but there is no physical link with your server unless you have that doing automated
git pull against the repository, which I doubt 🧐
@phenomlab I use Zoho mail service.
Back to editing the text in the signup messages. I installed the plugin but its confusing.
It shows two boxes:-
Language Namespace Key Original Replacement
English (United Kingdom/Canada) (en-GB)
Should I be using 1) or 2) ?
I tried clicking on everything but cant seem to get the Text that you get at signup to edit it
@phenomlab I dont know what spf, dmarc and dkim are so I guess not!
Do I need them?
By the way I tried to upvote your response in regard to using option 1) - its worked now, but you already have 99 upvotes! Upvote count is at 99 for all posts?!
