You can easily customize the text seen on the affiliate side of NATS For Networks. All you need to do is find the text you want to change in the Language Template, and add your new desired text to the Language Override Template. This wiki will assist you with finding the right text for the most common changes.

Your template list is located in the Configurations Admin, under "Skins and Templates". Select the "Edit Templates" icon for the skin you wish to affect.

From the template list, you can choose the 'language' section to see all of the language templates.

There are two types of templates here:

NFN Languagefile.png

  • The base language templates (eg, language_en) defines all the text available to be translated. This template is for reference and cannot be edited.
  • The language override templates (eg, language_override_en) where you can paste content from the base language template and modify it.

Page Sections

The most commonly edited text from the language files are the page titles and page descriptions at the top of each page in the affiliate area. In the language template you will find a comment to tell you where these fields start.

#
# page specific settings
#

After this comment, you will see small blocks of code headed by a name in brackets. Each of these small blocks is defined for one particular page on the site. For instance, here is the section for the offer portfolio:

[offers]
PageTitle = "Offer Portfolio"
PageDesc = """As an affiliate, you can promote any of the offers here in our portfolio.  Feel free browse through all of the offers, along with their description, available languages, and CPA options.  The options on the left can help you sort through our list of available offers.  Clicking on an offer will bring up even more information, such as the authorized countries and marketing types."""
PageDescInternal = """You can promote any of the offers here in our portfolio.  Feel free to take a look at all of the available offers, along with their description, available languages, and CPA options.  The options on the left can help you sort through our list of offers.  Clicking on an offer will bring up even more information, such as the authorized countries and marketing types."""
Currentoffers = "Current Offers"

Each variable is for a different section of text on this page. When you paste these variables into the override file, make sure you have the appropriate [page identifier] before your variable. This wiki will help you understand which variables change which text.

Editing Templates Directly

The definitions specified in the language templates are loaded on their specified page templates. For instance,

{#PageDesc#}

from the external_offers template will be replaced with the text under:

[offers]
PageDesc = "Whatever page description you want"

If you need to make a change that involves more than just changing the text, you can replace {#PageDesc#} in the template entirely. This will let you hard code the text that you want to display, and skip using the language file entirely for this paragraph. Doing this will mean that the language_override file will no longer change this element.


Page Specific Settings

Here we explain the language_en file sections labeled under:
