        Dear registrationmagic team
        what about the strings present in sample_data.xml?
        For istance there is a string “Register with us by filling out the fotm below” that I couldn’t find inside the language file. It is only present in a json structure in the sample_data.xml file.
        So there are two problems:
        1 – I can’t easily modify that file because the string is contained in a json structure and I need to mantain that structure with no errors.
        2 – But also if I rightly modify that file probably it will be replaced during the next update and I’ll lose all the changes.

        Donato

        1. RegistrationMagic

          This is the default plugin structure. If you want to customize it according to your requirements, you can change it. Of course during the update, changes will be lost, so you need to take a backup; then update plugin and transfer your custom changes again.
