    Hello I am trying to change the word “Vendor” and the word “Product” across the whole site. I am able to do this through JavaScript but I would like to do this through functions.php for performance reasons. How can I accomplish this?

    Thank You

    Hello Ben, I did check that out before I submitted the post but it only applies to those 4 instances. I need it site wide and I dont want to edit core files. I tried changing the word Vendor Dashboard using the following but it did not work:

    add_filter( 'wcv_vendor_dashboard', 'custom_vendor_dashboard_label' ,10, 1 );
    function custom_vendor_dashboard_label( $message ) {
    $message = "Seller Dashboard";
    return $message;

    Any ideas on how I can change all instances of the word Vendor and all instance of the word Product?

    Sounds like you could take the default.pot in the /languages folder and just translate it and use that instead. As for replacing “Product”, that’s a WooCommerce thing, not WC Vendors, but this will help with strings in the WC Vendors plugin at least. 😉

    If I fork the project and add those changes in can I get them added in to the next release so they don’t get overwritten?

    You’re always welcome to submit pull requests to GitHub, sure! But if all you are doing is changing a language file, that wouldnt be anything that is a new feature or a fix for WC Vendors, so I’m not sure that’s the right thing to do. The language files you use would just go in /wp-content/languages/ so they are not overwritten.
