[resolved] My comment box has shrunk and I can't unshrink! (3 posts)

    I'm not the most technical wordpress guy around so this may be a simple fix, but I just can't figure it out.

    If you have a minute to go to balancemybrain.net and click on a comment link, you'll see the comment box is way too narrow and definitely not user-friendly.

    I've played around with plugins and setting to no avail. Your help would be greatly appreciated!

    I saw it. Open up your theme's comments.php and change the cols="5"to cols="100%" (or whatever) like so:
    from
    <textarea name="comment" id="comment" cols="5" rows="10" tabindex="4"></textarea>
    to
    <textarea name="comment" id="comment" cols="100%" rows="10" tabindex="4"></textarea>
    Good luck.
