Forum Description different than Meta Description?

#1
Is it possible to manually set the meta description of each sub forum for seo reasons rather than use the description that shows when you hover over the forum? Many of my forum descriptions are short and to the point, but don't rank well since they aren't relevant, SEO wise, to the content.

Thanks.

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> forum_view

This is the relevant code:

Code:
<xen:if is="{$forum.description} AND @threadListDescriptions">
	<xen:description class="baseHtml">{xen:raw $forum.description}</xen:description>
</xen:if>
If you have a different field setup for the second description then you can change it here. If not then you need an addon to create a secondary description for forum nodes.

I wouldn't bother. This shouldn't affect your SEO.

is this saying, that in XenForo by the default the "Meta Description" is generated by the "Forum Description" ?
