Fix problems with RS mail translations from RS Joomla.

I'm just installing the RS Joomla RS mail component and already I have found some errors with translations and language files. Here are some tips on editing/fixing them.

Note these tips are for Joomla 1.7, other versions may differ.
*Important: In this guide you will be editing RS Mail configuration files. DO NOT use and spaces when changing things, insted use "_" between words. Example; type "put_your_email_here" not "put your email here".

First a common question answered:
How do you change the "This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it." placeholder text that appears in the RS mail module on the front page.

  1. Find and edit the file: /language/en-GB/en-GB.mod_rsmail.ini  
  2. Change to whatever you want, the line: RSM_YOUR_EMAIL="This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it."


If you find the placeholder text is strange in another language (as I found with Spanish) or you simply want to change it:

  1. Find and edit the equivalent file to: /language/en-GB/en-GB.mod_rsmail.ini  --(for example, in Spanish that is: language/es-ES/es-ES.mod_rsmail.ini)
  2. Change to whatever you want, the line: RSM_YOUR_EMAIL="This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it."

*NOTE if it is NOT THERE, just add it!, simply copy and past it from this page and change it how you wish:

RSM_YOUR_EMAIL="This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it."

Easy.

If you follow these steps correctly the RS Mail module should correctly display the placeholder text you want on the front page of you Joomla install. Make a comment!
