Design issue  Forum descriptions show up briefly underneath forum names


Well-known member

As of lately it seems that the forums descriptions show up briefly underneath the forum names when this page is loaded: (At least on my system here at work). After a split second they disappear and can be found inside the popup on mouseover.

Not a big issue ofcourse, but it looks a bit weird this behaviour.

make sense?
the descriptions are a blockquote that are hidden (using css) and revealed using javascript (jquery)

<blockquote class="nodeDescription baseHtml" id="nodeDescription-3">This forum will contain a feature spotlight and general hints and tips to help you discover all that XenForo holds.</blockquote>

Our JS executes after the HTML is loaded, so this can create a short window where the page is rendered but the JS hasn't run. This behavior varies from browser to browser, so it's hard to prevent (in a generic way).
