Changing the "uncategorized" description


(Marco) #1

I am configuring my forum in Italian language. I can’t find where to change the “uncategorized” category description. I have changed its name to “nessuna” but the descritions is still in English:

Clicking on the category name I get a panel where I can change the name and color, but not the description. With the other categories the behaviour is different.

Thanks.

If you go to yourforum.com/admin/site_settings/category/posting, the setting you are looking for is “uncategorized description”.

iirc, this did used to be editable like other categories, what was the reason behind moving it into site settings? @codinghorror / @sam

Guessing it’s an artifact from when the category descriptions were done differently?

Sorry to bump an old topic but apparently this is not done in either admin panel or category settings anymore?

Go to Admin -> Customize -> Text Content and search for the key category.uncategorized_description

this opens up a whole world of possibilities…
