String Overrides module for Drupal

FAIL (the browser should render some flash content, not this).

Developed by Rob Loach the Drupal module String Overrides provides a quick and easy way to replace any text on the site.

Features include;

  • Easily replace anything that's passed through t()
  • Less overhead than the Locale module (overrides are cached in the variables table, which is loaded on every page request already)
  • Locale support, allowing you to override strings in any language (not compatible in the Drupal 5 branch)
  • Ability to import/export *.po files, for easy migration from the Locale module
  • Click on the "Add row" button to add extra text boxes

Is this a super override?


Does this replace all strings or just the ones that are created by Drupal? Like, if my page I created, the body of the content has "My Account" and its just talking about "my account" will it replace my body strings to? This is an unwanted feature if it does is why i ask.

Other then that, great stuff!

Only stuff wrapped in t()

This only works for strings wrapped in the t() function in php. This does not include body content, the content in comments, or other things like that.

I've been meaning to do just this for sometime now. But I didn't want to go into the modules to hack it. Thank you so much!
