Change "Root" Category Title

Utilizing Vanilla v. 2.0.18.8

How can I change the name of the "Root" category to read "All Posts" or something of that nature?

Just started using categories on my forum and I believe "Root" may cause my feeble-minded followers to freeze up. I've searched everywhere in this forum and tried a million different combinations in my locale.php but cannot change the wording.

    Did you try the definitions "

    $Definition["All Categories"] = "All Posts";

    or

    $Definition["All Discussions"] = "All Posts";

    not sure where your root is coming from.

    what category options And/or category plugins are you using in dashboard.

    Users really should be posting in root. id of category of -1

    what categories do you have in your categories table in the name column.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • I've toyed around with it and decided just to hide the "Root" button in CSS. much easier. My apologies for the unnecessary inquiry. Thank you for the response.
