    change the text 'Leave a comment'  to something else.....how do I do it?

    Couple of things I did:  

    Administration >> Labels and Messages and searched for "Leave a comment". I changed its label to "Comments(0)" (that is how I want to show comments text for blogposts that do not have any comments) but that change did not take effect on the website, I republished the page, template etc. to no avail.

     I tried to modify the Comments text using jQuery: got hold of all anchor tags that  hold either "Leave a comment" or "1","2" etc. depending on the number of comments for the blogpost. I tried to alert the text of those anchor tags and got empty strings. When I looked up the source, I saw that all comments anchor tags have no text in the original HTML markup. All I see is <a href='#commentsWidget'><span></span></a>


    I am assuming the text "Leave a comment" and "1"/"2"/"3" etc is being loaded as an ajax request. I have no idea where it is coming from.


    Can someone direct me towards the solution for this.

    I am surprised that there is no straight forward way of editing the text for the comments count? or is there any? I am using Sitefinity 6.3

    Hello Phani,

    Try recycling the application. When editing labels of certain resource types Sitefinity generates a new physical file in the App_Data->Sitefinity->GlobalResources folder. This requires Sitefinity to reinitialize and read the changed label from the actual resource file created for it.

    I am using Sitefinity 7.

    I have changed this label  Type: CommentsResources  Key: CommentCount, but I can't see my text even after recycling the application.

    Have I changed the wrong label?
