    The site-in-progress is going together at record speed thanks to WordPress and the great Newscast theme. Thank you for all the help so far.

    New issue: when you password protect a post the following appears on related screens:

    Protected: (Title of Post)

    There is no excerpt because this is a protected post

    I would like to change the wording to:

    Subscribers only: (Title of Post)

    This article is available to Subscribers only.

    Where do I find the file in question, what is the filename, and what code needs to be changed. Would need to be able to change it for the Accordion Slider also, if a separate file.

    Again, many thanks.



    these text strings are not controlled by our theme but by wordpress. You can use filters or plugins like: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/protected-post-personalizer/ to change the text strings.


    I installed the Protected Post Personalizer plugin, but it is a first-time coding effort and was buggy and didn’t work correctly. I looked into the WordPress files and found the correct language file to alter.

    It is: wp-includes/post-template.php

    Just look for the offending lines of text and replace them with the ones you need.

    Works perfectly now.

    Thanks again for putting me on track.


    Glad that you found a solution :)
