Is there a way to change the default category from "All Categories" to a specific category in MLF v1.7?

You can change your index.php

Ther are several links to forum.php in your index.php
Try to change forum.php to forum.php?category=1.

Backup your index.php and check it out.

Thanks, that did switch the default category when I logged in as Admin. However, when I created a test account and logged in using, "All Categories" is still being shown as the default category.

when reading index.php there are several links to forum.php

Try to understand under which conditions (logged in / nor logged in and so on) which link is used. Then you have to change the entries for all conditions you want to redirect.

But always remember:

1. backup
2. backup
3. you know what? ;)

Willy,

Again, thanks for your help. I went back and edited "index.php" and changed "location: board.php" to "location: board.php?category=3" and that will now display the default category that I want users to see when they logon.

With this change users will not be seeing board threads at all when they logon. They will only see the 3 posts that I have made in the new default category and can only access other threads by selecting "All Categories" or individual categories. Hopefully, when I start adding my members to the forum this will make it less confusing...

one issue could be the better performance of 1.7 with large DB

At first is it still a Beta.
I do not use a Beta in productive systems.

And yes - my last Test with 2.0 Beta 11 was signifficant slower with 450.000 Postings and 230 User in DB.
