Help Finding File to Tweak Promo Code Wording

I’ve used Chrome’s “Inspect Element” to find the line of code for which I’d like to tweak the wording a little; however, I do not know how to identify which file this is in!? Could you help?

The class is “event-form-field coupon_code.” I want to change the label for ‘coupon code’ from “Enter Promotional/Discount Code” to “Enter Promotion Discount Code.”

Thank you for your help.

I’m sorry. I forgot to change the category for this topic. It’s not pre-sales. It’s supposed to be Event Espression Premium.

The code is in event-espresso/includes/admin-files/coupon-management/use-coupon-code.php

Line 100 (at the bottom of the code)

Remember though that an update will revert it back.

Ohhh . . . good to know (re: the update).

I’m concerned about doing the update because I’m not wanting what’s working beautifully to break. I’ve read some comments on this forum that that has happened. Any ideas?

Well I haven’t heard anything about updates breaking things, but it can happen with anything code based.

I am a great believer in testing things on an offline server or test server before putting it onto a live/money site.

I am aware not everyone has the knowledge/time to learn it though. Something like may be useful if you have the time to set your site up again offline. Note though that it isnt guaranteed that what happens on the offline server will be 100% the same as the live server but its close enough.

And updating your plugins/themes is definitely a good thing overall as they new updates often close security holes, other issues and add shiny new features.
