Remove Forum Dashes: —

    @tecca

    Hey,

    I’m trying to figure out how I can remove those dashes that separate the ‘Forum Name’ and its ‘Description.’

    Here’s an image to show what I’m trying to say: http://teccahigh.com/images/uploads/forum22.png

    Where it says “News, Updates, and Announcements —” I’d like to get rid of that dash in there. I have tried going into front-page.php and changing this:

    <?php forum_description();

    To this:

    <?php forum_description(' ');

    Which actually did work, but it removed a different dash (there used to be two dashes which looked like: — -

    It removed the small one, but now I can’t figure out how to remove the other one.

    Can we see your front-page.php code as its possibly part of the html as mine uses a different template and it only has one dash.

    It’s in here bb-includes/functions.bb-template.php (line 680):

    function forum_description( $args = null ) {
    if ( is_numeric($args) )
    $args = array( 'id' => $args );
    elseif ( $args && is_string($args) && false === strpos($args, '=') )
    $args = array( 'before' => $args );
    $defaults = array( 'id' => 0, 'before' => ' – ', 'after' => '' );
    $args = wp_parse_args( $args, $defaults );

    if ( $desc = apply_filters( 'forum_description', get_forum_description( $args['id'] ), $args['id'], $args ) )
    echo $args['before'] . $desc . $args['after'];
    }

    So you could probably whip up some function to override it.

    You both have one dash, most likely, but different fonts :)

    Oh, how dumb of me. I just needed to remove &amp;#8212 ; from the line. =)

    EDIT: Apparently the code above keeps changing even between backticks.

    Use this:

    <?php forum_description( array( 'before' => false, 'after' => false ) ); ?>
