All the text for Jive is hardcoded inside the JSP pages. I removed all the messages/text from the pages and replaced that with dynamic method call. For each of y forums, I have an XML file containing the appropriate text. When I create a new forum, I specify the name of this xml file as a property. I added a new class to Jive to process this file. It is not totally completed yet but I can give you the code and the JSP pages if you want.
