  • is it possible to change the phrase "thread"

    I use vbulletin as more of a selling/listing service. is it possible to make everywhere it says "thread", say "listing" instead? i know i'll have to create new buttons like the "new thread" button, but can i do this? and are there any drawbacks?

    Search in the Phrases for the word Thread and change them.

        That's strange. I find a lot of phrases when searching for 'thread'. Please explain exactly what you are doing.

          i only changed the phrase "thread". I guess i'd have to change about a thousand or so phrases to change it completeley right? not really worth my time

            Yes, you'll need to change this in every instance you want the replacement to show.

              Couldn't a replacement variable be used for this?

              Although it might screw up URLs such as showthread.php I suppose.
