  1. Use SharePoint designer to modify the view. This will make the changes for the specific instance of that discussion board.

  2. If you need to make the changes to the view for all discussion boards, you can either

    a) edit the schema.xml's CAML for the discussion board list that is located at

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\15\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\DiscussionsList\Discuss\schema.xml

    b) create your own custom discussion board list by copying the exisiting feature and modifying it to your own needs.
