If you are looking to simply add the text next to the Email label field follow these instructions:


  • Admin CP > Customization tab > Languages


  1. Once there click this button (located top right corner): 5a1717443dae6_ScreenShot2017-11-23at10_45_09AM.png.e2bc7eafabf443373bf4659e9567cef4.png & click it.
  2. This will pop-up:

  4. The "Quick Translating" will be off by default. Click it on and save.
  5. Well logged in as an Admin on the Front side go to: yoursite.com/index.php?/register/ (I tested this and it works; hence why mine is clicked on & changed in the 1st post in the image above)


  1. When you mouse over TEXT it will highlight as yellowish:

  3. Now PRESS & HOLD the LEFT mouse button until it changes to a text edit field.
  4. it changes to an EDITABLE type box :

  6. Type what you need (though I find, copy and paste better) and hit "Return/enter".
  7. Then go back to Admin CP > Customization tab > Languages and turn "Quick Translating" off.

NOTE: Quick Translating can be used to edit most words that appear on the front end (e.g.):


I used it to change "FORUM" label on the index page & the breadcrumbs home link text.
