The settings for this seems to be a bit confusing. You have: Show Forum Descriptions on Node List Include descriptions underneath node titles on the main node list. Enable Forum Descriptions Tooltips Show descriptions only when hovering over forum titles on the main node list. If the first option is checked and the 2nd option is not, you get the desired/explained result. If you disable the first option and enable the 2nd, you do not get the desired/explained result. No tooltip or description at all. I understand the thought here but I think it would be confusing for some users.
