I want any references to "topics" in my question layout to be referenced as "question".
"Topic title" > "Your question"
"Add topic" > "Ask a question"
"Topic tags" > "Topic tags of this question"
"Subscribe to this topic" > "Subscribe to this question" etc.
You can change all phrases in Dashboard > Forums > Phrases admin page. Just search, edit and replace them. if you don't find any phrase, click on the [Add new] button, insert phrase key the native version and the phrase value your version.
We'll add these phrases in next version release, please wait for the next update.
I'm sorry, but I can't provide any ETA yet. We're releasing soon.
I too believe Simplified/Extended and Question Answer layout should be independent of each other in css styling, phrases and etc.
The good feature of WpForo is the different layouts. Thanks for developing.
