Thank you for contacting us and I'd be happy to assist.

To change the default message, you can use the 'gettext' filter:

For example:

add_filter( 'gettext', 'custom_cred_form_labels', 20, 3 );
function custom_cred_form_labels( $translated_text, $text, $domain ) { 
    switch ( $translated_text ) {
        case 'No user specified' :
            $translated_text = __( 'New message!', 'wpv-views' );
    return $translated_text;

Please replace 'New message!' in the code snippet with the actual message that you'd like to show.

The above code snippet can be included through either Toolset's custom code feature ( ref: ) or through the active theme's "functions.php" file.

I hope this helps and please let me know if you need further assistance.



My issue is resolved now. Thank you!
