Changing the Access Denied Message

Hello,
We have some private sub-forums, only viewable to members with certain permissions.  Guests and those not in the group see the message:

"Access denied - you do not have permission to view this page "

Where can I change or add to that message?  I'd like to add text that says log in or contact us.

Thanks.

I am not sure if that is one of ours.  Can you show us an image of that message?  I suspect that might be a WordPress message but seeing a full page image with the message in context will help to confirm.

Thanks.

Hi:

Thanks.  As far as I can tell that's not one of our messages.  So, its likely to be a WordPress message. Or maybe its from a membership plugin (if you're using one of those) that's securing those forum urls?  We have a similar message in our PRINT plugin but that's not at issue here.

These messages are in fact coming from your SP theme. So you could make a child theme to change them as you wish.
