To modify the Add to Cart button in VirtueMart

The Add to cart button is actually a gif file.
It is located at:
YOUR_JOOMLA_FOLDER/templates/YOUR_DEFAULT_TEMPLATE/images/button-addtocart.gif
Replace YOUR_JOOMLA_FOLDER and YOUR_DEFAULT_TEMPLATE with the corresponding values for your web site installation.
Replace this gif file with one designed by you and reload the web site. The new Add to cart button will be visualized in your online shop.
You can also change the label of the button from the following file:

administrator/components/com_virtuemart/languages/common/USED_LANGUAGE.php

Replace USED_LANGUAGE with the corresponding language file name (for example english.php).

Look for the following line and enter the preferred value:

‘PHPSHOP_CART_ADD_TO’ => ‘Add to Cart’,

    Hi; I tried the bottom part of this to change the label on the shopping cart button. It looks like it should work, but it doesn’t. It makes no difference to the label at all. Any other ideas?
