    You can hide it with CSS. Try adding the following code to your theme’s style.css file.

    `.bbp-template-notice.info {
    visibility: hidden;
    height: 0px;
    }`

    Thank you so much for responding, Shane. I couldn’t get this to work but as I was searching for further explanation, I found another fix. I added this code to the functions.php

    add_filter( ‘bbp_get_single_forum_description’, ‘ja_return_blank’ );

    add_filter( ‘bbp_get_single_topic_description’, ‘ja_return_blank’ );

    function ja_return_blank() {

    return ”;

    }

    for anyone else who may have this problem. Thank you for setting me in the right direction!

    Just for info, I’ve just tried the CSS fix and it worked fine. I’m using the suffusion theme and added it via the custom includes. Many thanks!

    I’m using 2.3.2 and this is my solution.

    There’s a function in the theme files calling this, simply noting it out or deleting it prevents the call.

    // bbp_single_topic_description();
    content-single-topic.php

    and

    // bbp_single_topic_description( array( 'topic_id' => bbp_get_topic_id() ) );
    form-topic.php

    This makes more sense to me because why generate the HTML just to bloat your CSS file to hide it? Or why add more to your functions.php file when all you need to do is some basic theme work? (Although that was some clever hacking of the wordpress/bbpress hooks there mindyjoy :))

    *Make sure to move all your theme files into your wordpress theme (wp-includes/themes/your_theme/buddypress/) so you don’t lose your work with an upgrade.

    I completely agree with you, @nerdenpose. While the two above solutions essentially work, I’d much rather remove it completely from my theme. bbPress seems to be about clean and elegant, so I try to keep it that way by removing features that aren’t needed rather than hiding them.

    Also, don’t forget to remove this line if you don’t want it shown in specific forums as well (to go along with the above post).

    From content-single-forum.php:
    <?php bbp_single_forum_description(); ?>

    Also the “visibility: hidden” solution in the first reply irks me a bit. It works, but instead use “display: none” if you’re looking to remove these bars using CSS.

    Being new to all of this, could someone help with how to do this from @nerdenpose:

    *Make sure to move all your theme files into your wordpress theme (wp-includes/themes/your_theme/buddypress/) so you don’t lose your work with an upgrade.
