Enquiry spelled wrong in contact us should be Inquiry

Recommended Posts

Not sure how to change the code in the contact us page as Inquiry is spelled wrong and seems to be spelled that way thoughout the whole page. Is there someway to at least change what is displayed to the customer. Any help would be appreciated

Change the catalog/includes/languages/english/contact_us.php page according to what you feel is correct:

define('HEADING_TITLE', 'Contact Us');

define('EMAIL_SUBJECT', 'Enquiry from ' . STORE_NAME);

define('ENTRY_NAME', 'Full Name:');
define('ENTRY_EMAIL', 'E-Mail Address:');
define('ENTRY_ENQUIRY', 'Enquiry:');

define('ERROR_ACTION_RECORDER', 'Error: An enquiry has already been sent. Please try again in %s minutes.');
?>

It's not "incorrect", it's "British spelling". If it was written "inquiry", our cousins across the pond would be complaining... There is probably other text around using British spelling or phrases -- change them the same way.

Thank you, I suspected that it was British but wasn't sure. I just know here in the usa people will think that I miss spelled it.

How many OSCommerce websites are from the US and how many are from the UK? I'd think there were far more from the US than from the UK. How about changing the default spelling in the release to "Inquiry" and let the minority sites change their spelling.

I think that would be upsetting to the custodians of the Mother Tongue. I can see the torches being lit clear across the ocean whistling.gif As osC is European in origin, I will concede them the right to use British spelling, and modify it here for 'merkin. We are on the same side, right? The Late Unpleasantness is now almost two centuries in the past.

I have a client who wanted this change and I made it, thank you. Now they are upset because the email they receive from the form still says Enquiry... where do you change this in the email sent to store owner?

 

I know, what difference does it make.... I have a webzilla on my hands.
