  • Editing User Titles

    Hopefully this question will make sense.

    How can I make the text input boxes bigger for entering and editing User Titles in the Admin Control Panel?

    I have html code inserted in my user titles so that a small image will display with each user title, but I would like to be able to see more of the text so that it is easier to edit.

    I am not sure if I need to modify a template for this, or a php file, so I am looking for a little advice.

    You'd need to edit the usertitle.php file, I believe.

      OK, but what am I looking for and what do I need to replace to make that text field bigger?

      I have already looked at that file, and didn't see anything that would obviously change the size of that text field.

      I am not a pro at this stuff by any stretch of the imagination, so most of the time I need a guided tour for this kind of stuff.

        The easiest way is to change the $size value in
        PHP Code:
        function makeinputcode ($title,$name,$value="",$htmlise=1,$size=35) { 
        in adminfunctions.php. But then all input fields in the CP will be longer.

        You can also change the makeinputcode calls on line 20 and 47 in usertitle.php.

        Look in adminfunctions.php how the function is defined.

          OK, I will have to take a look at that and see if I can make any sense of it.

          Better get out my good luck charms.
