I've searched & search the site for the answer to this one, its simple but I can't find it!

from the index.php?route=account/login page I want to change the text from

"New Customer" to "trade customer"

&

"Returning Customer" / "I am a returning customer" to "Trade customer" & "I am a returning account holder"

I've opened up all sorts of PHP files to find the text & thought instead of waisting more time, it was time to admit defeat & ask for help! ( I know I'm going to cringe when I know where it is!)

Many thanks!

Hi

Access to your server via ftp
Go to
/catalog/language/english/account
copy the file login.php and save it as login.bak (like that you will have a backup)
Edit the file login.php

You need to change this text
$_['text_new_customer'] = 'New Customer';
$_['text_register'] = 'Register Account';
$_['text_register_account'] = 'By creating an account you will be able to shop faster, be up to date on an order\'s status, and keep track of the orders you have previously made.';
$_['text_returning_customer'] = 'Returning Customer';
$_['text_i_am_returning_customer'] = 'I am a returning customer';
$_['text_forgotten'] = 'Forgotten Password';

Regards
Antoine

easy when you know how! THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

A great tip about renaming the old file to bak. all these years I've been editing files & saving back ups on my computer! its never once dawned on me to do that! For that snippet alone I'm glade I asked the question.

Is there a way to edit more of the "Account Login" page?
Because my website will force visitors to login before viewing the site (it's a wholesale website), I would like to dress up the account login page with a slideshow (nivoslider banner).

thanks!

I am wanting to edit this page also. I want to add another section of links that refer back to my Joomla site.

You can change the login page by editing catalog/view/theme/theme_name/template/account/login.tpl file
