Change I Like It and Tag and Notes display text


  • I have a publishing site in which Social tagging feature is enabled. I can see 'I Like It' and 'Tag and Notes' links on the top left corner of the site.

    I like to change to display text of 'I LIke It' and 'Tag and Notes' links.

    I tried changing the display text properties in socialtag.xml file but the display text didnt change.

    It would be nice to change display text using a feature.

    Could somebody help me how to do this.

  • What is the purpose of renaming them?

    I believe that these are hard coded into some of the core SP JS files.  You could also try to change them usign JQuery.

  • Hi Jagadish,

    To modify the display text of ‘I like it’, have a try to use JQuery code to a content editor web part, press F12 to get the location of ‘I like it’.


    <script src="" type="text/javascript"></script><script type="text/javascript">


    $('#AddQuickTag_ctl00_ctl38 span"Just a test");


    Best Regards.

  • Hi Yaoyao,

    I need the dislay text to be changed in all pages.

    If content editor webpart is used I need to add the webparts to pages to change the text.

    I need the display text to be changes in application pages also.

    Can this be done using features ?
