Where to translate the Guest Welcome message? guest.php

edited September 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 Help
I would like to translate into French the default Welcome message once sees when not logged in.

I found the View in applications/dashboard/modules/guest.php

But it calls for

echo T($this->MessageCode, $this->MessageDefault);
Where then can i set this MessageCode?

Thanks,

Alexandre

    I did a source code search. It revealed that $this->MessageCode is set in class.guestmodule.php like so:
    public $MessageCode = 'GuestModule.Message';

    Additionally, looking up the T() function, I found this:
    /**
    * Translates a code into the selected locale's definition.
    *
    * @param string $Code The code related to the language-specific definition.
    * Codes thst begin with an '@' symbol are treated as literals and not translated.
    * @param string $Default The default value to be displayed if the translation code is not found.
    * @return string The translated string or $Code if there is no value in $Default.
    * @see Gdn::Translate()
    */
    function T($Code, $Default = '') {
    return Gdn::Translate($Code, $Default);
    }


    Thus, 'GuestModule.Message' is the translation code and can be modified in the locale file for your forum, found here:
    /applications/vanilla/locale/en-CA/definitions.php

    To redefine that code in particular, something like this would work:
    $Definition['GuestModule.Message'] = "Looks like you're new round these parts. Tie up your horse and sit yerself down fer a drink.";

    Good luck.
