Ugh - why did you change the name of clips in the recent update? "Clips" is referred to through so many areas of my site (in the body of many blog posts, for instance), and "resources" sounds so cold and analytical, not necessarily even indicative of what is it. Plus, it's one more confusing thing to have to explain to members - not at all intuitive. I'd like to change all mentions of it in main nav line and sub navigations back to "clips". How can this be done?

Can you also give us a summary of all other changes made during this upgrade? It's so frustrating, annoying and time-consuming to stumble upon changes like this that then need to be explained to the whole community, when there is no obvious good explanation for the change.

Changes like this create needless work for hosts without any clear value added.

The change has alsoemessed up my main nav line  to the point that I can't manage my own account. Because "Resources" is longer than "Clips", the nav line now laps to a second line on every size screen view from smallest to largest, so I can't even access my profile/account to view notifications or to see if I have any.  Note how my profile button is obscured by secondary navigation in every view. THIS name change MUST CHANGE BACK ON MY SITE. Ugh.

Screen shot showing two "Resources" now on my main nav line. I really don't have the time to restructure and rename another entire section of my site because of your unannounced name change - there are major ripple effects throughout the site. I am on vacation besides. So frustrating and wasteful of time . . .

Yes, I need direct links/navigation instructions for changing back text in the following areas. I changed the main nav line (I think), but I don't know where or how to change the text in these three areas . . .I can't do a global replacement of "resources" because I already had a separate "resources" tab . . . I will spend too much time (ALL WHILE ON VACATION) trying to find the place to change these things and so need help stat.

1) In posting area/behind post button (need to change topics to forums; resources to clips):

2) In "manage Clips" area, need to change all occurrences of "resources" to "Clips":

3) Need to change "Manage widgets on Resources" page to "Manage Clips"

Yes, whatever wording changes you making in the Wording control panel are universal, so anywhere that "topic" or "resource" is used on its own will be changed to whatever you changed it to.

The wording control panel only affects the stock text provided by Crowdstack. It will not affect the content of posts or custom pages on your site.
