How can we hide 'Issue Type' help text?


We can hide priority help text on field configuration via 

<style>#priority + a{ visibility:hidden; }</style>


But can someone tell me how we can hide the local help text next to issue types?

You were almost done! Try this one from the description of Priority itself.

&lt;style&gt;#priority + a{ visibility:hidden; }&lt;/style&gt;
&lt;style&gt;#issuetype + a{ visibility:hidden; }&lt;/style&gt;

The javascript in the browser loads all the code in a single shot. Hence this works.


Is the issue type help text you are referring to, that "?" icon that appears next to the field? 

Can you please provide the name of the jsp that needs to be updated with this 'fix'




I've tried the suggestion but it didn't work for issue types. Did you manage to get it work?
