Please don't use 'OH CRAP' in the error.php file :)

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Hi,

I spotted that sometimes your error.php file for 404 catching shows:

OH CRAP!

Crap is not a pleasant word (maybe considered a swear word by some English speaking countries) and I'd not want any of my clients or their customers to be seeing this on an error page - I can change this OK by editing the file, but something like 'OH NO!' would be much more suitable :)

Hi,
can you tell me in which template name you have seen it ?

Yes I saw it in one template as well, can't remember which. But it is considered a swearword in most english speaking countries, though not a bad one, but certainly doesn't look professional. I quickly changed it wherever it appeared before any client saw it.

Hi Paul,

It's definitely in Spectrum, I thought I'd seen it elsewhere but I may be wrong.

Indeed, it doesn't look "professional".

File: error.php
<p class="error-message-title">OH CRAP!</p>

That's the one, hopefully can be amended in future updates :)

Yes, it will be.
Today morning I talked with developer, he promised to change it soon (with next update).
Thanks .

and indeed, it WAS fixed but the latest Spectrum 1.5 has reinserted it again! Poor.

Hi Paul, I had a client using a site built on the Spectrum template bring this to my attention today too, but I know I removed it once in the past, just fyi. Thanks!

Hi Paul, Fixed this error once and had the same client bring it to my attention again, even after fixing it. Can you confirm that this will not happen again? This is an extremely bad, unprofessional look that I have to continuously apologize for.

The error.php file for the template needs manually edited to remove/change the OH CRAP words...

Hi Chris, you are correct. But unfortunately, this file is overwritten each time you run an update to the Spectrum template, meaning that this phrase pops up again and again and you have to remember to manually remove the phrase with each update. It would be different if you could create a language override to replace this phrase, but, alas, it's hard-coded into the template file.

Yes exactly, it seems this issue never got fixed though I don't recall seeing the issue on any template since.
