I've got a question about the descriptions that are linked to input type options. How do I get rid of it?

I've inherited a site that, for some reason, when I mouse over the options they start twitching as the text adjusts and tries to move to the second line. As a result is a pain to make the PHP selection. I've seen other drupal sites that have the option without the description, but when I went to "Site configuration > Input formats" I didn't see any way to remove those descripts.

any suggestions or links to documentation would be welcome!enter image description here

The Better Formats module is your friend here, you can use it to remove all or part of the format descriptions/options:

Better formats is a module to add more flexibility to Drupal's core input format system.


  • Set the default format per role.
  • Set the default format per content type.
  • Control allowed formats per content type.
  • Hide format tips.
  • Hide more format tips link.
  • Hide format selection for nodes, comments, and blocks seperately, forcing the default to be used.


(emphasis mine)

  • Thanks! this looks promising, I'll give it a try and let you know how it goes. Thanks for your help!
