    Can you disable forum descriptions? Or do i have to remove them all manually? Seems like it would be a good idea for SEO to be able to make them invisible to members/guests but readable by Spiders.

    Admin CP -> Appearance -> Style Properties -> Forum List -> Show Forum Descriptions on Node List

    Normally spiders are considered to be guests.

    There is another option on the same page to hide descriptions in tooltips. That might work for you:

    That requires a template edit:

    Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> node_category_level_1

    Find and remove this piece of code:

    <xen:if is="{$category.description}"><blockquote class="nodeDescription baseHtml">{xen:raw $category.description}</blockquote></xen:if>

    How would we go about just hiding the category description with CSS?
    I've like the description to still be viewable to search engines.
