@cbox_admin – It looks like WP Grade Comments 1.4.4 was not tagged on wp.org’s SVN, so the referenced download for CBOX OpenLab does not exist: https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/commons-in-a-box/blob/9c92ebb5bd410eeff8bc6859b7ece90bd8d160e2/includes/openlab/plugins.php#L362.
Can you take a look?
Thanks for finding this bug. I can confirm the problem.

There was a new forum topic about customizing various strings in CBOX:

Okay, so you just want to change the URL to the “Contact Us” page? You should be able to just edit the “Contact Us” page directly from the “Pages” dashboard page and changing the page slug.
You can also access the “Contact Us” page through the “Brand Settings” page as well: https://commonsinabox.org/copy
Let us know if that is what you mean.
The “Our Support Team” widget is currently hardcoded: https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/openlab-theme/blob/cc97bf7f84bd10fd8eb6dea3c1173377c1797c0c/sidebar-help.php#L34.
So this cannot be modified unless you create a child theme to override the sidebar-help.php template.
Can you tell us what you are trying to modify?

How are you doing the translations at the moment? If you are translating with help from a plugin like Loco Translate, you’ll need to translate for the
commons-in-a-boxtextdomain as well.
