Hello, I am a JForum wanna-be user, and I am trying to configure it in French. First, congratulations to the development team, your work is awesome.

Now my issue : since local customization has not been completely performed for French language, (buttons for example), I have added some ressources and edited configuration files so that my forum looks "frenchier".

However, the changes do not seem to be taken into account each time I edit a file. Is there a procedure to follow in order to be sure that JForum reloads all the following files at startup ?

$HOME$\templates\default\styles\fr_FR.css
$HOME$\templates\default\images\fr_FR
$HOME$\templates\default\images\logo.jpg
$HOME$\templates\mail\fr_FR
$HOME$\WEB-INF\config\languages\fr_FR.properties


Thanks in advance for your answer.

What doesn't seem to be picked up? All of the config files you mention above should be "auto rereshed" when changes are made to them, including the SystemGlobals.properties file (which you didn't list).

It could be that your browser may be caching some of the items. Try holding down the Shift key and clicking the Refresh button in your browser when you don't see the changes.

Thank you GatorBait, I finally figured out that I was looking in the wrong folder, due to the way Tomcat installs its applications. Sorry for the dumb question, and thanks again for your answer.

And by the way thanks to RedHand for the French style files, it will save my time.
