When I set the standart or custom "Author Alias" in a Joomla article, it is on the front end website preceeded by the words "Written By".

I am however using the "Author Alias" field for a different lable, and need to change the "Written By" description to something else.

Could somebody guide me to the right place where I could replace it. I have tried searching phpMyAdmin and the template, but no success!

Thanks for your help guys!

Hello,

The best way to change that is to modifiy language file. Is pretty simple and you have just to backup you languages files before update joomla.

- Go to your joomla root directory
- Go to languages directory
- Search your language directory and open it
- Search file xx-xxcom_content.ini and edit it
- Search string "WRITTEN BY=Written by" in your file and replace WRITTEN BY=Author Alias

That's all.

I Hope it helps
