Contact Form 7
textarea not working for me (8 posts)

    i have the latest version of contact form 7 and it is wonderful.

    i am however running into an issue with the length of the textarea field.

    i put in 10x50 and nothing works, i thought maybe i had to write 10/50 like the other ones but it does not affect the lenght of the box.

    Any suggestion?
    thanks. i also was not able to find a topic online to solve my problem.

    Where is the contact page? I guess you set styles in your theme's CSS stylesheets.

    line 962
    textarea {width:98%;height:120px;font-size:12px;}

    line 964
    #content textarea { width:400px;}

    Those styles are affecting to the textarea field.

    If you just want to specify styles only for Contact Form 7's form fields, add a line like this into the theme's stylesheet.

    .wpcf7 textarea { width: 1000px; height: 2000px }

    well this seems like a clumsy fix sorry to say. How come they are not working. You mentioned those lines in the css. How can i fix it so that when i customize a form in your interface it actually works?

    it works fine for the single line length.

    what is the proper way to fix this? Thanks.
