Hi there,

What is the full string you added to the page?

You need to translate this string:

%1$sYou have entered an email address that matches an existing user account in our system.%2$sYou can only join the Wait List using your own account or one that does not already exist.%2$sPlease use a different email address.%3$s

https://translate.eventespresso.com/projects/event-espresso-4/en/event-espresso-en_us/?filters%5Boriginal_id%5D=24588

The place holders ($X$s) are important as they are used for HTML tags.

Thanks, I added those, but it’s still not working. Here’s my code:

function signuperror_filter_gettext( $translated, $original, $domain ) {
 
    // This is an array of original strings
    // and what they should be replaced with
    $strings = array(
      	'%1$sYou have entered an email address that matches an existing user account in our system.%2$sYou can only join the Wait List using your own account or one that does not already exist.%2$sPlease use a different email address.%3$s' => 'Test'
        // Add some more strings here
    );
 
    // See if the current string is in the $strings array
    // If so, replace its translation
    if ( isset( $strings[$original] ) ) {
        // This accomplishes the same thing as __()
        // but without running it through the filter again
        $translations = get_translations_for_domain( $domain );
        $translated = $translations->translate( $strings[$original] );
    }
 
    return $translated;
}
 
add_filter( 'gettext', 'signuperror_filter_gettext', 10, 3 );

Please let me know if I’ve made an error.

Hi there,

Which specific message are you viewing? Is it in a notice or on the page itself?

There’s actually 2 locations for that string, one if the full string mentioned above and the other is without placeholders.

Try:

$strings = array(
    '%1$sYou have entered an email address that matches an existing user account in our system.%2$sYou can only join the Wait List using your own account or one that does not already exist.%2$sPlease use a different email address.%3$s' => 'Test',
    'You have entered an email address that matches an existing user account in our system.  If this is your email address, please log in before continuing your registration. Otherwise, register with a different email address.' => 'Test 2'
    // Add some more strings here
);

In the function above, does you see either ‘Test’ or ‘Test 2’ at all?

Also, where have you added the code? functions.php may be too late in the request so we recommend creating a custom functions plugin to hold functions like these:
