    I had to do this on 6.0 and, at least to me, it was not readily apparent how to do it.  Enjoy.


    Admin Console:  System > Settings > Phrase Substitutions:

    • note the specified "Theme" (by default it is "custom") so it can be later assigned to part of the UI below (System > Settings > Themes)
    • click "View Rules"
    • repeat the procedure below to create the 5 rules using the appropriate parameters:
      • click "Add Rules"
      • specify the following parameters:
        • Rule 1: set "Target"="Value"; "Operator"="Regular Expression"; "Pattern"="\bFriend\b"; "Replace With"="Connection"
        • Rule 2: set "Target"="Value"; "Operator"="Regular Expression"; "Pattern"="\bFriends\b"; "Replace With"="Connections"
