  • Increase the default size of the post and thread text entry boxes?

    Hello:
    Users on my forum tend to write very long, wordy posts and threads. Exactly how do I change the default size of the post AND thread text entry boxes? Ideally I would like to double their size. I simply don't know where to change this, though, in VB5. Thanks!

    Try adding the following to the css_additional.css template:

    Code:
    .content-entry-box .ckeditor-bare-box, .content-entry-box .ckeditor-bare-box.entry-field {
       height: 250px;
    }
    Change the value to whatever height you want to display the box at.

      I think there is a drag and drop icon in the lower right corner of the message boxes. Once the member drags and drops the box to their desired size, it is saved.

      Another option is to encourage members to use the GO ADVANCE button to have more tools, plus the ability to see the full size preview before submitting.

          This actually does not work. It displays correctly, but once you click in the box to write something, the box jumps back to the original size that is defined by default. Ideas?

            Any ideas? I made the suggested change and it is not affecting the size of the text entry boxes. They start larger and immediately resize to the default size.
