Support » Plugin: bbp profile information » Extend input text

  • Resolved alanjs90



    This is exactly the plugin I’ve been looking for so thanks for that.

    I was just wondering if there is a way to extend the amount of text a user can put in one field? Such as having a description box for the text instead of one small rectangular box? A user might have a city with a long title or a job title that’s long and at the moment when you input it, you have to scroll along to see it all. and if it’s possible to fit it all on the same line when it appears on the forum reply display? or have separate boxes for the same field so you can input on different lines? Sorry if I’ve made that sounds a bit complicated.

    Then user can put as much info in as they like, as you say if you type beyond that shown it saves it.

    If you want to change the width of the box the user can see, then in user profile the classes are



    so in your custom css you can put for instance

    #rpi_label2 {
    width : 350px ;

    and play with the number

    In the forum reply display, this gets mire complicated, as to make that section bigger, you haver to make the reply content smaller, but for instance

    #bbpress-forums div.bbp-forum-author, #bbpress-forums div.bbp-topic-author, #bbpress-forums div.bbp-reply-author {
    	width: 200px !important;

    and adjust this one down to get it all to fit eg

    #bbpress-forums div.bbp-forum-content, #bbpress-forums div.bbp-topic-content, #bbpress-forums div.bbp-reply-content {
    	margin-left: 150px !important;
