I have an exposed taxonomy term filter with values of "true" and "false". I would like to simply rename the options to "yes" and "no".

I can't simply change the taxonomy tern name since I am importing the values from a XML file.

How would you suggest I do this? Is there a simple CSS rewrite - changing true to yes, and false to no? Is there a field theme function I should use?

Thanks for any help.

  • Can you go in the .module file pertaining "true"/"false" and find the values t(true) and t(false)? That can be a dirty fix, but it works.

The easiest way is to use hook_form_alter to alter the names displayed in the options.

An alternative and a bit more tricky way, is to create your own views_filter_handler for them term used in the view, and customize how the exposed filter form should look like. This is a good solution if you are creating many views and want a single place to do the alterations. See How do I add dropdowns in Filter Criteria in Views module? for more info.
