Changing some default text in welcome email ... grep mystery

(Tony Curzon Price) #1

I’ve been wanting to make a v.small change in the welcome email - essentially to take out reference to “staff”, since this is a purely volunteer forum I’m setting up.

So I edited out the reference from the 2 files where I got results for:

grep -r “A staff member approved your account on” .

which were config/locales/server.en.yml and config/locales/server.bs_BA.yml

But that didn’t make any difference … and when I now grep the above, I get no results … but the emails are still the same as ever.

This may be a very basic question … do I need to do some kind of build of the app after this kind of change?

Thank you for any help

after your changes, ssh in to your host.

cd /var/discourse
./launcher restart app

That should do it.

Thank you, @watchmanmonitor

In case it’s useful - I/m running a discourse instance on a bitnami/google VM, and the equivalent command there is:

sudo /opt/bitnami/ restart
