-- All InsaneJournal users, free and paid alike, can also use override codes to change their comment links. Override codes are to be pasted into the "Style Overrides" box at the bottom of the Modify Journal page [http://www.insanejournal.com/modify.bml].
The override codes to be used are dependent upon the layout style you are using. The codes in this FAQ are grouped according to the layout style that they are compatible with. Note that each group of codes contains 3 smaller sets of codes:
* The first for your LASTN (Most Recent Events) view. * The second for your FRIENDS view. * The third for your DAY (via your Calendar) view.
At most, you should only be using one set of codes for your LASTN view, one for your FRIENDS, and one for your DAY view. If you have more than one style in use on your journal (for example, Generator for your LASTN view and Magazine for your FRIENDS), BE SURE to choose the correct overrides ONLY for that view, using our example, taking the first set (LASTN) from the second override codes (Generator) and the second set (FRIENDS) from the first override codes.
The overrides as they appear below will change your comments links to something like "(2 messages | leave a message)."
Within the codes, look for the words "leave a message". You can change these words to whatever you want, and they will replace the standard "comment on this" link text in your journal.
Then, look for the part of the code that looks like this: message%%mc-plural-s%%
The word "message" would be the word that gets pluralized when you have more than one comment. Change that word to what you want. Before that word, you'll see %%messagecount%%, which simply displays the number you see whenever you have comments.
%%mc-plural-s%% is what automatically pluralizes the word for you, when needed.
However, if your word needs to end in "es", like "kisses", replace %%mc-plural-s%% with %%mc-plural-es%%, like so: kiss%%mc-plural-es%% . If your word ends with "y" and thus needs to be pluralized with "ies", as in "replies", use %%mc-plural-ies%% instead of %%mc-plural-s%%, like so: repl%%mc-plural-ies%% .
Listed below are the override codes. The first group of overrides is compatible with the "Default InsaneJournal", "Punquin Elegant w/ Sidebar", "Notepad", "Refried Paper", "Clean and Simple", "Disjointed", and "Magazine" styles. If you are using the "Generator" or "Tabular Indent" styles, take the appropriate codes from the two labeled sections that follow after.
