Default category when creating new items

    When I create a new item in Showcase its always the last category that is default in the create item list. Can this be changed?

    hmm, there is nothing set to "default" as "checked", so if that is happening, it could be a browser issue. Which browser (and version of that browser) is this happening on?

    Here is how the source code look like in the browser


    In IE11 "Category 2" is chosen as default
    In Chrome39 "Category 3" is chosen as default

    That looked better, the first empty option was default and no "selected" in the code for the option list.
    Maybe some add-on that is doing this. I have many so will take me some time to check.

    btw, there is ONE rule exception to this with the new "Create Item" button that is located in FORUMS (next to the create thread button) that are associated to Showcase Categories. It will "pre select" the showcase category that is associated with that Forum... if there are multiples, it will select the last (because its within a loop). There is no way to "pick" which one is pre selected. You'd be better off just removing that check from the template.

    template name: nflj_showcase_choose_category
                <select name="category_id" class="textCtrl" id="ctrl_category_id" autofocus="true">
                    <option value="0">&nbsp;</option>
                    <xen:foreach loop="$categories" key="$categoryId" value="$_category">
                        <option value="{$categoryId}"
                            {xen:if '!{$_category.allow_items} or !{$_category.canCreateItem}', 'disabled="disabled"'}
                            {xen:if '{$_category.thread_node_id} == {$nodeId}', 'selected="selected"'}  
                            >{xen:string repeat, '&nbsp; ', $_category.depth}{$_category.category_name}</option>
    remove this:
    {xen:if '{$_category.thread_node_id} == {$nodeId}', 'selected="selected"'}
