In Admin setup > Forums > Categories > Mode of assigning categories
I encounter a behaviour not exactly as documented.
There is 3 possibilities:
1. Deny the users to assign categories themselves
2. Allow selection of categories. Current selected by default.
3. Forced to select a category. No default category.
1 is working perfectly: when a user enter a new topic, the category list is not displayed at all: he can't select a category, that's OK.
2 seems to be partially working. When creating a new topic, the category selector is displayed and allow to select a category.
But, even when you create a new topic after entering a particular catagory of forum, the current category is not selected by default: I always get "Uncategorized" selected by default.
3 seems not to work at all. The category selector now displays "Please select category", but you are not forced to select a category and you can leave this selector without any action.
I guess in "Forced" mode, a warning (or a greyed "Post" button) would prevent from posting a topic without selecting a category?
Please, could cases 2 and 3 work as documented in the admin setup?
