Customizing the text on Maia Pages

If you need to customize a few phrases or something on the web pages, there's no need to edit templates; Maia has a mechanism to help you.

The original locale files are located in the locale/ directory. Look at the format of those files, but instead of modifying them, make a new file called local.php, and put your changes there. local.php will not be modified during upgrades, so your changes will not be lost. This file will override the default values.

In addition, if you need to make a theme-specific locale change, you can create a local.php file in themes/$theme/locale/$language/ which will override both the default and the site override above.
