Implementation

Important: Before you begin, make sure you make a backup of your theme. We cannot help restore a previous version if you attempt this custom code change and something goes wrong.

1. Go to the Website tab: https://www.uscreen.io/bullet/website

2. Click the 3-button menu and select Checkout Snippet

3. Navigate to the Head Code Snippet area

To replace a term, you should add a new term between quotation marks.

Example:

const newFilterAuthorLabel = "Coach";
const newFilterCategoryLabel = "Workout";

To replace only Author term

const newFilterAuthorLabel = "Coach";
const newFilterCategoryLabel = "";

To replace only Category term

const newFilterAuthorLabel = "";
const newFilterCategoryLabel = "Workout";

4. Copy the code below, replace the terms, and insert the code in Head Code Snippet

<script>
/* Change terms here */
const newFilterAuthorLabel = "";
const newFilterCategoryLabel = "";

/*
###############################
# Change the terms in the Filters
# ! Not recommended to change the code below !
###############################
*/

function replaceAuthor(newFilterAuthorLabel) {
// replace author
const authorFilter = document.querySelector('[for="author_id"]');
if (authorFilter && newFilterAuthorLabel) {
authorFilter.innerText = newFilterAuthorLabel
}
}

function replaceCategory(newFilterCategoryLabel) {
// replace category
const categoryFilter = document.querySelector('[for="category_id"]');
if (categoryFilter && newFilterCategoryLabel) {
categoryFilter.innerText = newFilterCategoryLabel
}
}

document.addEventListener('turbo:load', function (e) {
replaceAuthor(newFilterAuthorLabel)
replaceCategory(newFilterCategoryLabel)
})
</script>
