Changing Storefront Text - Language Strings

Catfish allows you to customise most text labels and content within each storefront.

Find the Language Strings

Login as an administrator to the storefront that has content that requires adjustment.  Be sure that you are in the correct storefront.  

Choose Configuration -> Languages

Click the View String Resources link to access all entries in this language pack.

URL: storefront/Admin/Language/List

The whole storefront is driven by the content of the English language pack.


To Find String and Edit follow these steps

  • Use the filter button at the top of the Value column. Contains is the easiest filter but there are others.   Search for content you have found on the storefront you wish to change.
  • Applying the filter will return all instances of the search term.
  • Use the RESOURCE NAME column to identify if this value is the correct instance (the resource name normally contains page names that the value appears on, and a little more info)
  • Click Edit, and adjust the VALUE column ONLY. Save the changes you make.
  • These changes should appear instantly on the site.
