Default Category in Ushahidi


I want to delete default category(All Category) and set another category to default category. What can I do? Can anyone help me?


Hi Saren,

The "All Categories" item is primarily used to ensure that all the reports appear on the main map. It is not a real category. However if you want to have a default category for your reports, you will have to do some customization or develop a plugin to handle this.

Also, if you want to change the "All Categories" label on the main page to something else, edit the language file: application/i18n/en_US/ui_main.php and change the value for the item in line 41 to what you would like it to read. Once done, refresh the main page to see the changes.

Hope this helps.
