I am not sure what the proper term is, but by post header, I mean the area at the top of a topic, under the title, but above the first post, which normally gives the first few lines of the first post.

However, in a recent topic, this was much larger than I have ever seen it, so I wanted to report it. Here is a screen shot of what I see:

May be this is because,i have used '$$' instead of '\(\displaystyle [/MATH' tag.\)

It seems sort of superfluous to have an outline of the post and then post. Also, it would be pain to replay to a post if has a bunch of replies since the reply button is all the way at the top now.

I see a reply button both at the top and the bottom. I do agree that the header or summary might not be needed, however if it is intrinsic to vBulletin and would require custom coding to remove, then I truly don't think it would be worth that. :D

\(\displaystyle

No, I don't think so. I changed all the '$$' to '\[' and '\]'. But the problem persists. :)\)

The header needs to be there for SEO reasons and like Mark said normally isn't this big. The header is the meta-description for the page in the HTML code and it seems it takes the first X characters from the post to generate it (I haven't counted what X is). Anyway, I added two sentences to the beginning of the post and it has successfully reduced the size of the header.
