How to change the "↳" character of nested categories?

Hi everybody

I have some nested categories in my forum and in the Categories panel in the main page, they are specified with a "↳" character. Would you please tell me how can I alter this character. I was searching inside the php files but I could not locate it. Thnks

    Welcome to the community!

    What version of Vanilla are you running?

    I believe you are looking to modify the view for the categories panel. Copy the file /applications/vanilla/views/modules/categories.php to /themes/YourThemeName/views/modules/categories.php. Open the copied file. On line 36 you will see an inline conditional ($Category->Depth > 1 ? '↳ '). Change the to what ever you want. If you see a weird symbol there like a question mark in a box, your editor/font doesn't support that symbol. Don't worry about it.
