I'm Stuck !

Template - genRock

please can you tell me in simple terms how i can change the "Login/out, Private Messages, Profile and Register" buttons to English ??
Whats there is written in French at the moment.

I've looked through the settings and cant find these in any of the template settings.
Is it standard with that particular template ?
I've used a similar one in blue called genElectro and thats English in those sections.

My apologies if i'm not clear nor finding the answers in the forum and having to post this but i've spent hours looking and now i'm asking for help.

Please keep any fancy terminology out of the answers as i'm baffled enough as it is lol.

Many thanks, Don

The french is in button images, so you would need to create your own english buttons in a graphic editor and upload using exactly the same name as the french images.

1. control panel ---   3. Styles - Edit Templates/Logos -- gen rock

now open that template

look for

Select Image  --- you will see you all ready have the english iconsin there.

So you need to look in your overall header.tpl


        <td align="left" valign="top" colspan="2" background="templates/myfn_testsite21/images/cellpic5.gif" width="100%" height="28">
        <table width="100%" height="21" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" >
        <tr height="21">
          <td align="left" valign="top" height="21">
          <a href="{U_LOGIN_LOGOUT}" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/myfn_testsite21/images/icon_mini_login.gif" width="110" height="21" border="0" alt="{L_LOGIN_LOGOUT}" hspace="10" /></a>
          <a href="{U_PRIVATEMSGS}" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/myfn_testsite21/images/icon_mini_message.gif" width="130" height="21" border="0" alt="{PRIVATE_MESSAGE_INFO}" hspace="10" /></a>
          <a href="{U_PROFILE}" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/myfn_testsite21/images/icon_mini_profile.gif" width="60" height="21" border="0" alt="{L_PROFILE}" hspace="10" /></a>
          <!-- BEGIN switch_user_logged_out -->
          <a href="{U_REGISTER}" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/myfn_testsite21/images/icon_mini_register.gif" width="105" height="21" border="0" alt="{L_REGISTER}" hspace="10" /></a>

now change each image path to be that of the english icon

for example change




Thank you so much, took me a little while to find how to change the images, as you're probably aware i'm not too computer literate but i saved the images then added them as with the logo and it looks like its worked.

I couldnt find all that fancy text or how to access it but if this works i'll leave it lol.

Thanks again.
