I need to change the
english string "Save filter settings" into "Search" in the local_amos. I
try language en_fix but it says 'English fixes allowed for standard
To explain why it says 'English fixes allowed for standard plugins only':
English strings in non-standard plugins are embedded in the lang/en folder of the plugin. They get pulled in from there in to Amos.
If something is wrong there, it is up to the developer to change the string in his/her code tree. So filing a bug for a change like that is the way to go.
Usually plugins are linked in https://moodle.org/plugins/ and they all have in the "usefull links" section some way how you can report bugs.
And how it goes for Amos:
Amos is a bit different in that, because it's actually a plugin that creates a community site. So I had trouble finding where to file a bug for it. Eventually I found the code on https://github.com/moodlehq/moodle-local_amos, but the issue link there is dead, which I reported.
You can create a bug for Amos on https://tracker.moodle.org, select "Moodle community sites" as project and "lang.moodle.org" as component
Thanks Stam for the suggestion and thanks Koen for the good and detailed explanation.
Stam, can you please elaborate more on why you need to change that string? I am not against it as it will actually make perfect sense. I am just wondering if there was some particular problem with the current wording.
Thanks for the question! I also needed to explain why and propose some changes to the AMOS toolkit.
First, I think this is all about a search page "view.php". Search pages of cource have filters but the main thing when you finnish setting the filters is not to save them but to apply them, namely to "Search". Of cource saving of filter settings is quite usefull but it could/should be a separate option e.g. "Save filter settings" check box under Miscellaneous.
When I first show the page I really could n't find where to put the text I was looking for and where to click to see the results.
To make it worse, the word Search appears on the page in a text field for a different task.
So, I propose that the Substring text field should always be visible.
The Navigation menu on the right has not enough space. The Components frame overlaps it so I needed to place it as a button on the left side of the page. I think a horizontal scroll bar is needed here to allow for smaller width.
Last, I think we need a new column in "contrib.php" for the number of comments. Bold if new unread comments exist. Now I need to check my email to see if any of my contributions or comments has new unread comments.
