Changing “Remember Me” text string in user box in Joomla 1.5

I wanted to change “Remember Me” text in the user login box in Joomla 1.5 to just “Remember” so that it should fit with the login button to the right of it while keeping them in same row.

Anyways, here is the simple process to change “Remember Me” text in Joomla 1.5.

Navigation to your Joomla-installation/language/en-GB folder and open the “en-GB.com_user.ini” file. There is another file with name “en-GB.com_users.ini” so don’t confuse with it, it is “en-GB.com_user.ini” which you will need to edit. Near line 90 you should find “REMEMBER ME=Remember Me”. Change the right side text. When i changed it, it looked “REMEMBER ME=Remember”. Save and upload. You are done (?)

But wait, it is possible that your Joomla is using login module language file (which mine did) to display login form text strings. Edit this file, that is, /language/en-GB/en-GB.mod_login.ini (near line 32) and upload.

If you still cannot see changes try clearing cache using Tools > Clean Cache. Or, there is another language file which you may consider making changes to. It is /language/en-GB/en-GB.ini which has same variable that is REMEMBER ME near line 264. Make same change here as well. These are the only place you could change Remember Me. Change must reflect now.
