WP Contact Form Textarea (9 posts)

    I've installed the WP Contact Form by Ryan Duff. All went well. The only problem I'm running into is the textarea size. I've been trying to make the area smaller. I have edited both the cols and row fields in two places, but when I went to my site, the rows would be smaller but not the width or cols.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to edit the width of the textarea?

    Yeah, check your CSS. But also bear in mind that setting the cols and rows attributes is important too -- if a user is viewing your site without styles enabled, the size will be set using these attributes and the size of the box gives an important visual cue as to how much text is to be expected.

    This is bit of a follow up. I am trying to make the text input color black. I've tried adding:

    .wpcf_email {
    font color="#000";
    }

    to the wp-contactform.php but that does not seem to work. Any other suggestions?

    well, wpcf_email is an id, not a class.

    You could try #wpcf_email instead. But each of the 3 inputs has a different ID, so maybe better just going after something a bit less specific?

    Maybe

    .contactform input {
    color: rgb(0, 0, 0);
    }

    Ok, that's weird. 'cause I *never* get CSS right on the first try...

    Glad it worked though. Happy blogging!

    Handy, if you are ANYWHERE near Las Vegas, Atlantic City, or a mom n pop powerball shop, this would be the time to have a flyer....
