Customizing html on askbot hosted

I made a askbot site hosted on askbot and I see no files to change. I know it's possible to change the CSS, but I want to change the html of the website. For example I want to change the "Hi there! Please sign in" to something like "sign in/register" . I want to change the wordings of the site functions. How do I do this in the most easiest ways ?

Sorry, that phrase is not easily changeable. Some others are - via the "settings" interface.

We might either remove the "Hi there!" part, or allow the site owner to customize this string in the future version. Perhaps "Please sign in/register" would be a better default?

I think simply sign in/register would be more classy....but yes definitely please sign in /register is better than having "hi there please sign in/register"

Ok, I will patch apply this change on the hosted sites.
