How to change wording on message when accessing forum without proper permissions

Post by fpena911 »

When a user goes into my site and selects a forum where they do not have the proper permissions they receive the default message of:

"You do not have the required permissions to view or read topics within this forum."

How can I change this so that I not only provide different text but also can add a hyperlink to a different page where they can register?

I tried to look at the language files and couldn't find this message there, is it in one of the template files? If so which one?

Thank you!

But registered users can also see this message if they try to access a topic/post that they do not have permission to do so.

Thank you!

I thought I searched this file but I guess I must have overlooked it.

Understood. I shouldn't have many of those situations except for this particular instance that I am trying to customize the message for.
