Finding student visable strings
by Foghlam Fad Beatha - Wednesday, 23 March 2011, 8:32 PM

After looking at some of the other questions on here it seems like this probably has an obvious answer but despite looking and thinking i have not found it.

It is almost definite that the amin side of our course will have English so there is no hurry to translate the admin strings. How do i filter so i only get the strings that the students will see?

It's not so obvious smile
You need to install a test moodle 2.0 to show you the string id's for each expression in the interface. Just do a search in your testmoodle for debugstringids in the search field of the site administration block and you'll find the setting. Enable it and you'll see where each string is defined.
Edit: I can't get it to work myself at the moment - must look into it further

Finding where the string you want to change has always been a hassle. Tim Hunt said it would be easier in 2.x, so I've been looking forward to it.

I tried using the debugstringids setting on a 2.0.2 Moodle and set debugging to the 2 most verbose alternatives, but nothing showed up. Hope somebody has a way to get it going.

Just wondering if you had a chance to get any further with getting that to work?
