  • The text area in the comments form starts off a good size, but as soon as I type a character in it it widens so it is off the screen on the right. You have to type blind for a few words before it wraps back in to view.

    From a previous post, I think this is the problem: “This doesn’t happen in firefox, but in IE. One possibility is that it is cuased because of the setting width=100% for the textarea.”

    The solution was: <textarea name=”comment” id=”comment” cols=”70″ rows=”4″ tabindex=”4″>

    Change the cols=”70″ to something very low so you see the result. If it then changes accordingly you know what the problem is. Then I’d still recommend leaving the 100% out and just search a cols=”x” that’s ok.

    However my style.css page does not have a textarea

    My style.css is here:

    Any suggestions?
