Why use, vBPhrases?
Myself as alot of members on here have at time to time wanted to change the text to something on the site. Or maybe you want to add a translation for it. It can get frustrating when you have to try and figure out what Phrase Variable what you are wanting to change is. You would normally have to go to the ACP and click on the Languages & Phrases menu in the left pane. Then you would have to click on Search in Phrases and enter the text you are looking for and click on Find.

This would return a list of all phrases containing any text you typed in. Now going through that list and trying to find out exactly what you are wanting to change or translate sometimes can be a daunting task, as the list sometimes can be rather large or what you searched for does not show up due to the fact there is a variable in the phrase which is unsearchable.

Sure you could search and tick the "Exact Match" but, what if a phrase is made up of multiple things like, {1} Threads, {2} Posts, {3} Blog Entries, then it's impossible to search with "Exact Match".

Not anymore, with this mod enabled it will show you the Phrase Variable everything is using on your site. It makes trying to find what you are looking for much more efficient and quicker. By simply copying what is shown in-between the ( ) and then searching for that, ticking the option Phrase Variable Name Only in the search form in the ACP / Languages & Phrases / Search in Phrases.
There are six settings for the mod.

  • Option to disable the showing of the varnames.
  • Option to display version number you are running.
  • Option to set which usergroups you wish to be able to see the varnames.
  • Option to set which users you wish to be able to see the varnames if you don't want to enable it for usergroups.

    The ability to show the phrase varnames in the ACP and Modcp. This works on all phrases, with the exception of, settings phrases. The way vBulletin shows them is different from any other phrases.

    It is possible to show them with a file edit, which we don't like to suggest but it is the only way to do so. The instructions for the file edit can be found in the readme.txt file in the zip, and on the settings page for the mod.
