http://gardenrails.myfreeforum.org/

When you search in Google for 'Garden Railway Forum' the text below the link to the forum displays:

This forum is locked: you cannot post, reply to, or edit topics. ... Anything related to the garden railway world that is not catered for in another board. Moderators ...

Can I edit this text and if so where?

Thanks for your help.

Would this not work in overall_header.tpl?

<!-- IF SCRIPT_NAME eq 'index' -->
<meta name="description" content="site description here" />
<!-- ENDIF -->

There is no SCRIPT_NAME macro, but what I would say is that open graph meta data has been added in the last few days along with changes to what goes into the description data.
More changes are likely and so trying to second guess this would probably be counter productive.
