What is your issue? trying to change a label in the M2 Pro membership registration form

Hey there, how are you today?

Hey Larry!

Larry Davis 09:53:09 pm


the page is here – the site it’s running M2 pro plug-in

and I’m trying to simply trying to change the label on the first field to read “Enter a Username Using Your First & Last Name Only”

can we do this with CSS?

Nahid Ferdous Mohit 09:53:39 pm

Let me take a quick look into it.

Larry Davis 09:54:49 pm

It’s a big problem for the client because the Pay Pal reporting is not providing details and he needs to find the new registers and set-up their page

Nahid Ferdous Mohit 09:55:08 pm

I see, sorry to hear that.

Larry Davis 09:55:26 pm

so he wants all the user names to be only first and last name.

I’m a designer not code guy and my code support guy has been ill – so I’m trying to tackle this. 09:56:06 pm

Nahid Ferdous Mohit 09:56:33 pm

Alright, just a moment, let me check if we have any hooks or filters around.

Larry Davis 09:58:25 pm

in the theme you will see a custom CSS tool that we have worked on the style of this form but not the label

I have accessed support access

Nahid Ferdous Mohit 09:59:27 pm

Thanks! Let me take a look.

Unfortunately, the labels cannot be changed through CSS, The easiest way of achieving this would be to use the Ultimate branding plugin & then enable the built in site wide text replace module, this allows you to enter any text or phrase and enter replacement text for it. 10:01:09 pm

Larry Davis 10:01:51 pm

do you think it will cause problems with M2Pro

or the extended Buddy press forms 10:02:02 pm

Nahid Ferdous Mohit 10:02:07 pm

Nope, shouldn’t do. Should work just fine.


When I install Ultimate Branding we are getting a Server Error 500 – also I’m concerned if Ultimate Branding will work on the page/form in question

since this is a virtual page – will this work? – Please advise – I did not have 38 minutes to get back on the Live Chat.

Thank you!

Larry Davis
