    It’s a regular full screen comments to me ….. and looks fine.
    What do others say is wrong ?

    they say the “text doesn’t wrap” and it’s hard to type… that’s about the long and short of it.

    Sorry, extra post: since I’m blogging in China, it might *might* be an issue with GB and Big5, the fonts used for displaying Chinese characters. But I’ve had that on for myself, and it didn’t interfere with comments. Just FYI here.

    I think I know what it is: In the default CSS file (from 1.0ish, not sure if it’s still there) there’s the following chunk:

    #commentform textarea {
    width: 100%;
    }

    And that causes the comment box to get super-wide as some browsers (it goes underneath your sidebar, and then you can’t see text when you’re browsing ). Take that chunk out, and you’ll be good to go.

    I’ll give it a go. Thanks antifuse.

    You can also adjust the columns in the comments-post.php code. 🙂 I use 40.
