    I am running 1.92-f7 and since we are an Amateur Radio Group I would like to
    hack the registration to ask for Amateur Call Sign instead of user name. This
    would make my task a bit easier.

    Thanks

     
  • Open localization/_owner/localized.owner.php and paste this line:

    define("L_SET_2", "Amateur Call Sign");

    But then you should avoid confusion by asking for the Amateur Call Password
    too. If you agree, also paste this line:

    define("L_REG_1", "Amateur Call Password");

    Don't forget to update your chat to 1.92-f8 or even 1.93. Download the 1.92-f8
    fix only and apply the patch.

    Thanks for the quick reply Firebug was not giving me much help since things
    were localized a bit. Could not find a patch file from f7 to f8 maybe did not
    know where to look and maybe what I downloaded was it but no guidance on what
    I need to patch. I downloaded the fixes for f1-f8

    The registration patch worked perfect, the password hack was not necessary
    since everywhere in the world Amateur Radio Operators know what the word
    CallSign means. Been that way since 1912. This will save me a lot of admin
    headaches since I have to either banish or send emails.

    I did download what you had indicated but fin no info in the insatll or doca
    about what to patch? Guess at 64 it is time for me to retire.

     
  • You just need to upload all the files from that zip in the accroding folders
    of your chat, using ftp. Overwrite the old/existing files. Nothing else ;)
