DotNetNuke Tip: Change “Unit” to “Apt/Unit” in User Profile

When users register, the profile page asks for a Unit, right above the
Street.  A better label would be “Apt/Unit”, since this is the place to put
in an apartment number.  You can’t change this label in the
Manage Profile Properties, so you need to do a little editing.

There are at least 4 places you can change this text, but the only one that
affects the public view of a user’s profile is
~/admin/Users/App_LocalResources\Profile.ascx.resx.  Edit this file in a
text editor, find “Unit:” and change it to “Apt/Unit:”, then save it.  Your
registration and profile pages will now show the new label.

The label in the Manage Profile Properties won’t change (and I haven’t found
that edit yet), but your registration and user’s Manage Profile pages will all
show this change.

  1. you can also do this via the DotNetNuke UI. Log in as host, go to host->languages. Now select ‘language editor’. Now expand out the treeview to your desired area i.e local resources->admin->users->app_localresources->profile.ascx, and make the change. You can also export out the resultant change as a language pack and use that for any new portals, so you don’t have to make the change everytime.
