I'm using String Overrides module to override some strings on my site. I could override some strings like

"Performance" to "Clear" (admin/config/development/performance)

"Content" to "List of Nodes" (admin/content)

But it doesn't override "Create @bundlename" strings like

"Create Article" to "New Article".

enter image description here

When I navigate to /node/add/article it's still showing Create Article as title of the 'Node add form'.

I've cleared cache, but still not working.

Any suggestions?

You can try using Node Add title module ...

Above module allows you to configure the title of the Node Add pages and the Node Editing pages.

The default title of the page where users create new nodes is constructed by Drupal in a dynamic way that not always looks good. By default Drupal concatenates the word Create and the name of the content type. The result could be something like "Create Basic page" or "Create article". This is not always acceptable.

With this little module you can replace Drupal's default concatenated Node Add page title and the Node Editing page title with a title of your choice for every content type.

After installing this module you will see the following two new fields at the bottom of the content type configuration form:

Node Add page title Node Edit page title Use these two new fields for overriding the titles of the new node creation pages and the node editing pages.

PS : Module is in Dev Version.... Test before you use..

If you are interested to change same using code you can use drupal_set_title

function mymodule_form_alter(&$form, $form_state, $form_id) {
    if($form_id == 'mynodetype_node_form'){
         drupal_set_title('My new title');
  • Thanks Anil, The module works great! I can use coding but client wants user interface for that so I had to install this module . both ways helpful. Thanks for the alternate module :) Jul 7, 2014 at 10:23

For those who may be looking to override the string for node creation using string override, you need to use the following under Original : "Create @name"


This is the reason why it doesn't work the way you want it to. StringOverrides uses the localization functions, and the localization functions do not translate @params.


In original Column write "Create @bundlename". In Replacement Column write "New @bundlename".

Note : This will override for all the Bundles.

  • I think I already tried that but didn't work. Did you check it? Jul 18, 2014 at 9:13
