    I typed my domain name in Google and saw that it's showing the latest announcement on my Xenporta recentnews block, which doesn't really describe what the site is about. How can I customize this?

    XenPorta most likely sets the meta description. You should ask for support in the add-on thread.

    I'd like it to completely ignore XenPorta. Is there anything else I could do?

    XenPorta most likely has code that sets the meta description. You can modify XenPorta to change that functionality, but you should ask in the appropriate thread.

    Are you sure you've set your forum's Board Meta Description set in ACP > Options > Basic Board Information?

    I'm using XenPorta and Google shows the above meta description correctly for me. Also XenPorta doesn't have any meta description options as far as I'm aware.

    Yes I have that set.

    Just to try again, I changed the meta description in options but it didn't work. In Google, it just updated to my newest recentnews thread.
