[resolved] Unusual Problem with comments (2 posts)

    1] I am using the blue-zinfandel-3column theme. The comment box on my blog was too large. So, I edited template file comments.php and uploaded it to server. Here is how it looks now:

    <textarea name="comment" id="comment" cols="40" rows="10" tabindex="4">
    </textarea>

    When I view the source code of any post the textarea is shown as
    <textarea name="comment" id="comment" cols="100%" rows="10" tabindex="4"></textarea>

    How come its showing cols="100%" and NOT cols="40"?

    2] Next, I modified CSS properties for textarea and for all comments section. Still the same problem.

    3] Next, I deleted comments.php from server and uploaded it again. The problem persists. The source code still shows

    <textarea name="comment" id="comment" cols="100%" rows="10" tabindex="4"></textarea>

    4] Now, the bad thing. I deleted comments.php from the theme folder and yet the comment section is visible on blog posts and still shows:

    <textarea name="comment" id="comment" cols="100%" rows="10" tabindex="4"></textarea>

    I have tried everthing ... I am not getting frustrated ... why is it still showing cols="100%"?

    Please help!

    It turned out to be that the comment template of the default theme was being used while blue-zinfandel-3column was the theme in use. Fixed it at last.

    I deserve a coffee break!!!
