Genres and Countries show this option, they should not, looks pretty naff / confusing.

  • Priority changed from major to critical

Only Genres showing this - if we can remove this quickly that would be great - it looks pretty amateurish.

This is the default plone's way which actually makes sense. Since Genres is an optional field, removing the "no value" option would result in a user always having to select one of the other options. The only workaround that I can think about, is adding an "Uncategorized" option, make it the default and then remove the "no value". This would result in an extra "Uncategorized" Genre that would show up on the listings as well.

I suppose that's the best solution, though it would be much nicer if Plone considered it to have a value of "no value/Uncategorized", but this was transparent to the user. i.e.

  1. the selector on the publish form showed a blank space instead of the text "no value/Uncategorized"
  2. any template that showed the "no value/Uncategorized" genre also showed a " " representation of that genre - no text at all.

does that make sense? does Plone store a name/number for that field, that can be displayed as empty text?
