    Change "Select Search Type > Categories" Default Menu Item in MetaSearch Module

    How can I change the "Select Search Type > Categories" default dropdown box / menu item in the MetaSearch page?

    Use the meta_identify_default setting in www_server.conf
    >> cd $metalib_conf
    >> cp -p www_server.conf www_server.conf.20090216
    >> vi www_server.conf
    available options are: QuickSets, MySets, Locate, Category, New

    This is a global change affecting all portals in an institution.

    Do not change the HTML in meta-1-body. For example, the standard HTML "selected" attribute does not work as expected here because the user's last choice persists until their session ends or the user logs out. The system remembers the last selected setting for this dropdown box and continues to display it.
