When a user registers on registration page, in the case where they already have an account, when they register they get the error message “user name already exists”
This is confusing for the user because the problem is not the username it is that the email address is already associated with an account. I can change the username 100 times and still get the same message. I’d like to change this error message to:
“Username or email address already exists”
I keep getting clients complaining they can’t register.
What file can I find this error message in so I can change it?
Site URL: hidden Theme version: 3.9.1 WooCommerce version: 3.5.2
You can change text using translation files. Install Loco translate plugin https://youtu.be/1E5L9MyQ7W4 , create English translation, change strings and disable the plugin.
Or copy et_register_action function from legenda/framework/theme-functions.php into functions.php file of child theme and change this text http://prntscr.com/m5wqbn there.
