Text on discussion buttons

Hello all

I need to change some text on some of the buttons in the Discussion iView. I need to change the text on the "New Discussion Topic" and the "Subscribe to Discussion" buttons. Does anyone know how to do this?

Kind Regards

    we have changed some of the default SAP texts too, but it is very time-consuming. You have to search within the /usr directory for the text (also in *.jar files). You can use a tool like total commander to do so. After that you need to backup the jar-files, unpack them, change the text in the corresponding files and pack them again. You will have to do so after every Patch 😔

    • Hi Reinhard, hi Ole,

      first, searching directly under /usr will be time consuming 😉 But if you know that you are looking for something in the portal sphere, you can <i>at least</i> start from \usr\sap\[...]\j2ee\j2ee_[...]\cluster\server\services\servlet_jsp\work\jspTemp\irj\root\WEB-INF\portal\portalapps (this holds for 6.20, you will find the analogon on 6.40).

      The visual KM stuff in addition is to be found within application One more folder to save...

      Using WinRAR, you will find very fast four property files containing "New Discussion Topic" (for german there are three), and checking them, you will very fast see that in fact it is within /lib/km.appl.ui.collaboration_api.jar, there com.sapportals.wcm.control.collaboration.discussion.DiscussionBaseControl_[lang].properties, there property lblNewDiscussionTopic.

      In addition, using WinRar you can edit this file in place, or "in JAR", so no unpacking/packing needed.

      Hope it helps
