Spelling Error





Scorpio
When I get donations there is a message saying

"you have recieved a donation from xyz"

The right spelling is received

Is it possible to change it? If yes, can you?

Because I dont get along with spelling errors very well. Sad

British and American stuff Rolling Eyes

We won't do anything about it.

One is British spelling, one is American Spelling. Or what people call U.K. English and U.S. English.

No that is not it.

RECIEVED is the WRONG spelling. Neither the british nor the americans spell like this unless they want to spell it wrong

British and american stuff are something like rabit and rabbit etc

Searching for Recieved in the Merriam Webster Dictionary We get this

The word you've entered isn't in the dictionary. Click on a spelling suggestion below or try again using the search box to the right.


So that seems to the wrong spelling.

One more thing no0bie, I dont want to sound offensive, but please research before you post about these spellings. I checked it and only then did I post it.

PS: I do know the difference between US and UK english and this certainly is not part of both

Unfortunately no0bie, you fail to realise the point here.

WIKIPEDIA is an encyclopedia in which YOU and anyone else can create and edit an article, nobody is going to evaluate it for spelling errors.

But that doesn't render the word correct.

Dictionaries are the most reliable since they are built for the purpose of accurate meanings, synonyms, and examples as well as spellings.

If you can find me an entry in a reputable dictionary, I agree that you are right,

And yes, the people who wrote recieve are all wrong

Yeah no0bie, Wikipedia lets people make there own articles, that's why there's not alot off topics for it. And I looked it up in my dictionary and it's not there to.

It isn't in dictionary.com so i think it should be what scropio said.

The mistake is in the cash mod itself and I can't change it in the control panel, at least not that I know. If I ever see it in the code, then yes I'll change it. Wink

Language files n00b.

lang_cash.php (or whatever it is).

WOW, I've been spelling recieved wrong all these years Confused

Yes, N4L, the file is named lang_cash.php.
the exact line is:

Code:
$lang['Donation_recieved'] = 'You have recieved a donation from %s';


P.S - personally i think the cash mod by xore is the best at functionality/features, but is also probably the worst coded hack for phpbb that i have ever seen.

guess this doesn't need to be open now, so to stop spam -locked-
