[resolved] Only CAPS show's up when typing comments. (10 posts)

    All users, including myself, only see our comments being entered in CAPS while we type a comment in the comment box. But it shows up as no CAPS after the comment is posted.

    The problem is that users think it is all in CAPS and so they press the CAPS lock key to switch back to no CAPS, which doesn't work while viewing the screen. But after it is posted their CAPS shows up in the comments.

    How can I fix this 'bug'?

    Unless you provide a link to a page demonstrating the problem, no one will be able to offer much in the way of specific help.

    there is probably a style for the comments form textarea (in style.css) such as 'text-transform: uppercase;' which does that.

    you could look for 'textarea' in style.css of your theme;

    - or -

    post a link to your site, which would help to check this and to make a suggestion how to remedy it.

    alchymyth,

    I looked for 'text-transform: uppercase;', but couldn't find it in the comments area. There is that section, but in the buttons and menu area only.

    You think that might be the issue? In the buttons and menu areas?

    Edit style.css and remove text-transform: uppercase; from:

    input, select, textarea, select {
        font-family: "Lucida Grande","Lucida Sans Znicode",Arial,Helvetica,Sans-Serif;
        font-size: 11px;
        text-transform: uppercase;
        vertical-align: middle;
    }

    input, select, textarea, select
    {
      vertical-align: middle;
      font-family: "Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans Unicode", Arial, Helvetica, Sans-Serif;
      font-size: 11px;
      text-transform: uppercase;
    }

    a bit more than a third down in style.css of your theme (line 662, if your editor has line numbers)

    esmi & alchymyth,

    Thank you both!

    I wasn't thinking about looking for 'textarea'. I was so focused on looking for only text-transform that I missed the forest searching for the woods.

    esmi,

    You're detailed comment helped me find that line of code!

    I will pray for both of you two that God may give you graces!

    Again, thanks to both of you!

    In Jesus, Mary, & Joseph,

    Tito

    alchymyth,

    I will pray for you too!

    Thanks!

    You two have been the most efficient in supplying answers to perceptively difficult problems.

    Everyone here at the forums have been helpful, though you both have been the most efficient!

    Issue resolved!
