Contact Form 7 How to Shorten TextArea? (5 posts)

    Form Currently displays:

    [textarea your-message 35/]</p>

    I don't have any problems lengthening the area by adding any positive # after 35/

    How can this are be shortened though? I've tried negative numbers, but only positive and zero seem to be accepted. Thanks!!

    Have you checked the doc? <http://contactform7.com/text-fields/>

    Thanks for the reply Dave.

    Yes, I came to the support forum due to that page not answering the question.

    All it says is: These fields can have a zero or one value, and the value will be used as the default value of the input field.
    which only addresses keeping the field the same size (ex: 35/0) or lengthening the box (ex: 35/any number greater than 0)

    I do see the '...zero or one value...' you mention, but I don't think it means a 0 or 1. It means a number or no number. Look at the table directly above the line you are referencing and then the line directly below your reference line.

    Any number that is added after 35/ makes the text area longer vertically. Adding a Zero or leaving it blank keep it the same size.

    Trying to figure out how to shorten the length of the text area.

    What first came to mind was to add a negative number after the 35/ which didn't work and is why I'm here. Thanks
