I want to have hackernews-like interface for topic screen. Is there a way to disable all the categories system completely?
When I disable all categories users can t open new topic anymore.
When I left only one topic and put everything in users still have to select category while open new topics.
How to delete all topics from a Category ?
How to delete all topics from a Category using the Dashboard ? I am the site-Admin.
Thanks in advance.
Any recommended solutions ?
@assamese One option is to purge the category from ACP but this option will remove the category as well so, you will have to recreate the category and set permissions accordingly (not a big deal if you ask me)
Second option is to select and delete/purge from the client side.
I found another way -
- create a fake category
- move all topics (from the category from where you want to delete all topics) to this fake category
- purge the category from where you want to delete all topics
- delete the fake category
@assamese if you are taking the time to move all topics to another category... why can't you just delete and purge them instead?
Because I need to preserve the CaiegoryID which is used by the WriteAPI-plugIn
@assamese how are you moving all the topics to the "fake category"
delete/purging topics from the client side does not remove the category
