Another issue i faced during the wordpress development, i want to change the tooltip text which appears on hovering the mouse over the tags created by wp_tag_cloud().
By default it shows something like 5 topics, 2 topics etc, and i want to make it something like 5 Projects tagged
So how to do it …?
Open category-template.php which is located under /wp-includes folder.
Search for this line
function default_topic_count_text( $count )
Under there you will find the following code
return sprintf( _n('%s topic', '%s topics', $count), number_format_i18n( $count ) );
Change the “topic” and “topics” string according to your need. As far my example is concern i changed it to this
return sprintf( _n('%s Project Tagged', '%s Projects Tagged', $count), number_format_i18n( $count ) );
Another example to explain it further
%s is the variable that stores the number of post and it is followed by a string which can be any, so lets say i want to say, There are 9 topics, i will change it to
return sprintf( _n('There are %s Topic', 'There are %s Topics', $count), number_format_i18n( $count ) );
Fist string is for singular and second is for plural
I hope this helps!
