I found it kinda annoying how a blank line is still displayed for the forum description even if there isn't one in the forum display. This is a really quick hack with just one file edit and a couple of easy template modifications. It will just remove the line break if there is no forum description when viewing a forum.

In forumdisplay.php find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

After it, add:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Under the "Forum Display Templates" set of templates, edit forumdisplay_forumbit_level1_nopost, forumdisplay_forumbit_level1_post, forumdisplay_forumbit_level2_nopost and forumdisplay_forumbit_level2_post to remove the "<br>" before "<smallfont color="#000000">$forum[description]</smallfont>" in each.

To also enable this in the forum homepage, just do the exact same file edit in index.php and the same template modifications in forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost, forumhome_forumbit_level1_post, forumhome_forumbit_level2_nopost and forumhome_forumbit_level2_post, all under the "Forum Home Page Templates" category.

Or remove the <br> from the template and then add the <br> to the end of each of your forum descriptions.

Well, that works too, but it's more work in the long run (and intially) than running my quick change. Besides, it's harder to remember to do every new forum .
