how do I get vanilla2 to display things as dicussions instead of questions?

edited November 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
My install of Version 2.0.14 used to, I think, have a Discussion tab and a button to Start a Discussion. Now it has Question tab and a button to Ask a Question. I want it to go back to Start a Discussion but I can't figure out how.

    OK found out here:
    add this line to your conf/locale.conf:
    $Definition['Start a New Discussion'] = 'CHANGEME';
    the voting plugin comes with it's own locale.conf containing the same string and that overrrides the default .conf's definition.
    So if you got Voting enabled you may want to change that same string in plugins/Voting/locale/what-EVER.php as well.
    After changing this file's plugins/Voting/locale/en-CA.php items (a few shown below) from questions to discussions everything is fine again. Thanks for info!

    // Discussion / Question
    $Definition['Start a New Discussion'] = 'Ask a Question';
    $Definition['Discussions'] = 'Questions';
