This section covers the techniques for replacing the delivered text and logos with your own text and logos. These customizations can be applied very quickly.
All text that appears on pages and graphic filenames in Knowledge Center are stored in a single file on the web server. This file can be found in the <install directory>\Web Server\KCenter\bin directory. The file is named eu<langid>.lng; for example euen.lng. The first two characters of this file name, eu, indicate that it is used by the Knowledge Center user interface. Note that there are many other lng files used for other modules of the Knowledge Center. The second two characters indicate the name of the language; for example euen.lng for English. Although this file has an extension of “lng” it is an XML formatted file.
Within the file each text item and graphic file name appears as shown below:
Each item in the file has a stringid and text. The numeric stringid is a unique value that identifies that particular block of text or relative path and name of a graphic file. The <text> value specifies the content for the item, that is, the text block or file name.
To specify custom text blocks or graphics, you must first create a “customization” file that contains your custom information. This is accomplished by creating a new file named eu<langid>.cus. This file uses the same file structure as the eu<langid>.lng file. You only need to add the specific text blocks and graphics that you are modifying to the “customization” file, because the eu<langid>.lng is read first and then the eu<langid>.cus file is read to pick up any customizations.
The customization file has 3 major sections:
Do not modify the standard eu<langid>.lng file. This file is replaced each time an updated version of the Knowledge Center is installed. Customization files (.cus) are never overwritten by Knowledge Center updates.
