Use RTFM as Canned Replies

Hi All -

I’m looking to use RTFM for Canned Replies. I’ve already gotten it
installed and working, but I’d like to tweak it a bit.

First, how can I rename RTFM to FAQ (or even Canned replies). My supervisor
isn’t a big fan of RTFM (yes, we all know it stands for RT FAQ Manager, but
others may know it as Read The F____ing Manual!). I’ve attempted to follow
this: http://wiki.bestpractical.com/view/RenameRTFM but have had no luck.

Also, how can I disallow an unprivileged user to search for articles –
since I don’t want to use it for articles, I’m looking to use it for canned
responses!

Thanks for any help!

Using a custom .po file is probably easiest.

Thanks Kevin -

Could you maybe give me a little detail on the custom .po file. I did find
this link (http://wiki.bestpractical.com/view/RenameRTFM) on the wiki – but
wasn’t sure how to implement it. So…I just went to
/opt/rt3/local/plugins/RT-FM/po and went in every .po file and replaced RTFM
with FAQ – but that didn’t seem to work. I still see RTFM on the left hand
side bar.

I did figure out the permissions thing already – I found RTFM had its own
set of permissions.

Thanks again!

Personally, I patched the code to do it (not too easy as it is spread
throughout the extensions codebase…) I can try to generate a diff if
you¹d like in the next day or two…On 26/10/10 4:09 PM, “Max McGrath” mmcgrath@carthage.edu wrote:

Hi Gary -

I’d be interested only if it didn’t take more than 30 minutes of your time.
It’s not a big thing – just something I started looking into and would
implement if it were easy to do.

A custom localization (.po) is a lot cleaner, and not hard.

Copy po/rtfm.po to po/en.po (to create an English localization) and then
run the script on it from http://wiki.bestpractical.com/view/RenameRTFM.
Make sure the modified output gets moved to po/en.po and then restart RT.
