Blogroll Option to turn off Descriptions below Links (3 posts)

    Hello, our website is http://SmArgus.com and we are using WP 2.7.1. Could someone please explain to me how to turn off the option to display the description below the link?

    When editing a link under its "Description" it says as follows:

    This will be shown when someone hovers over the link in the blogroll, or optionally below the link.

    However there is no visible option to turn on or off the description below the link and as such it is currently showing the description below the link and when hovering over it.

    We would like to see the description only when you mouse over, not below the link.???????????

    Thank you for any help anyone might be able to provide.

    I'd like to know the same thing, actually.
    I usually simply don't put a description in, because I never found where you can turn this off.

    I answered a similar in another post here:

    Hiding Link Description

    Quick summary... You are using an outdated template tag. Rather than "get_links" use the "wp_list_bookmarks" tag.

    The template tag to display links in a list without description text would be:

    <?php wp_list_bookmarks('before=<li>&after=</li>&show_description=0'); ?>

    Hope this helps. -josh
