Hi folks,

On the "logo-right" search feature of the default template, how can I translate the sentence "What are you looking for ?"

I cannot find it anywhere, on the override strings or template files.
Can you please help me?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
unfortunately, someone forgot and left that phrase in the file
templates\shaper_gazette\html\mod_search\topsearch.php

Hi Paul

So I can get in there and translate it there? Would that be enough?

Cheers

yes

It doesn't allow me to save it.
Maybe because I am trying to save it with a mobile device?

All code customization's make from computer not mobile device.
You can always use original file.

Use Google. If you broke, fix it.

Ok, understood I have to do it from a desktop device. However, the original file is always there.
I tried in several computers. Everytime I try to save the topsearch.php file with the changes, there's this error.

I really cannot see that something is broke! :(

Do you have any suggestions?

Edit that file on your laptop, then upload using FTP Tool
then check file attributes, recommended is 644.

Thanks for all your effort, but in the end of the day I decided to scrap that feature altogether, and revert to the default search features in Joomla.
Anyway glad for all your support !!!

Dear Paul, I decided to give it a new try, and you solved my problem.... but not 100% :p !

I was able to delete the old file, and upload a new topsearch.php translated to my language (horray!!!), but when I try to access it through the Admin template files manager, if I try to close/save it, I get the same error message.

But now since it is translated offline, I don't care about that error.
Anyway, thanks for your help!!
