Joomla 1.7 Tutorial – How to customize the module “Who’s Online” text – “We have one guest and no members online”

Joomla 1.7 module ‘Who’s Online” provides statistics on the number of guests visiting  and members logged into your site.  If your Joomla website does not utilize the user registration feature then latter part of the message is redundant as there will never be any members online.    You can easily customize this message to announce only the number of visitors on your website: ie:  We have one guest online.

Steps to Customize the “Who’s Online” Module

1.  Login to your FTP Manager backend and access files on your webhosting

2.  Go to the directory:

/Joomla17/language/en-GB

3.  Edit the file:

en-GB.mod_whosonline.ini

4. Find the following code:

; %1$s is for guests and %2$s for members
MOD_WHOSONLINE_WE_HAVE=”We have %1$s and %2$s online”

and modify it to:

; %1$s is for guests and %2$s for members
MOD_WHOSONLINE_WE_HAVE=”We have %1$s online”

5.  If you want to change the wording “Guests” to “Visitors”, find the following code (in the same file):

MOD_WHOSONLINE_GUESTS=”%s guests”
MOD_WHOSONLINE_GUESTS_1=”one guest”
MOD_WHOSONLINE_GUESTS_0=”no guests”

and modify to the text in red italics:

MOD_WHOSONLINE_GUESTS=”%s visitors
MOD_WHOSONLINE_GUESTS_1=”one visitors
MOD_WHOSONLINE_GUESTS_0=”no visitors

6.  Save your file and refresh your website.
