Technically not needed, but cool
The underlying feature exists in Drupal core already, so String Overrides merely provides a UI for it. It may be used for monolingual sites.
I think there is room for improvement, especially regarding integration with other APIs and modules, so I'd love to see this evolve. At some point we should consider to move it into core.
I love this module
This is a "simple" module from the user's perspective and is *simply* wonderful.
Anything that has been put in a t() can be easily translated to whatever you want... whether you are translating to another language or simply don't like the wording of something, it's a piece of cake to change it.
The only downside is some times you come across strings that aren't wrapped with the t() function, but then those are usually dealt with in a different manner within the system, so you just have to figure out where to change it... (this is not an issue with the module)
I use this module on many projects and highly recommend it.
Thanks for the contribution.
Another Rob's Best!
Version D5 and D6.17
Why a 3 in Ease of use? Not because of the module quality or functionality, but because in my mind, this module is a advanced user module.
Rob produces some of the best modules for Drupal. I was using the local module for this, and wanted to utilize this module for its promised increase in speed.
All I had to do was export the .po of my custom local module, uninstall local, and then install this module. Then import the .po from my local export!
Works without a problem!
BTW, due to the change in interface, I was even able to find and correct some spealing mistakes in my changes! WOOHOO!
Works the best!!
I have used string overrides on my site WebOye and it work great even with storm in the backend and it integrates with other modules as well.
Indeed a macho module
Yet another perfect example of a module which works straightaway and does exactly what it needs to do without blinding you with science.
Very much required for almost every installation. Thanks
A must have on every Drupal installation.
Top module! One can easily replace generic Drupal text like 'My account' to almost anything!
Does not get better than this
The locale module has its place, but for quick and easy string replacements this is the ticket. If it does not work for you, there is a 99.99% chance that you did not configure your string replacements correctly... or the (t) function is missing. My compliments to the developer.
Easy to use and does exactly what I need it to do without being complicated in any way.
