[resolved] Making widget textarea bigger than 125x40 (6 posts)

    What I want is to make the widget text area bigger than 125x40 pixels, I don't know if it's a css feature (couldn't find it) or if we're talking about a char limit in php.

    Either way, this is what I'm talking about: (ignore my div width 150)


    I know that I can enlarge that field with my mouse, but it would be great to be bigger as a default cuz often I need to make changes via phone and it's really frustrating.

    P.S. I have changed from 40px the input area at countdown-timer.php

    It affects just the hour etc fields :)

    Regarding the textarea fields we're talking about the css class /admin

    .collapseomatic {

    background-image: url(images/arrow-down.png);

    background-repeat: no-repeat;

    padding: 0 0 10px 16px;

    cursor: pointer;


    I just need a few rows here

    did not fix it
    Thank you!

    Wow, ok, try this: Rather than change the .collapseomatic div, you want to change the textarea inside this div so add the following to either WordPress' admin.css or the plugin's admin/collapse-style.css file.

    .collapseomatic_content textarea {
    	height: xxxpx;

    Do let us know if it works for you.

    Ok, so the first one didn't worked out, adding it to admin/collapse-style.css

    Regarding point nr 2....where should this admin.css file be? I've searched inside wp-includes / css and tried adding the class to a bunch of css files but didn't happen

    (editor.css and the folder also contains some other files for the wp bar, i have added the class to every css file there)

    P.s. not using any cache plugins and cleard everything in chrome and firefox

    Thank you for your fast response Baden!

    Just did a test by adding:

    .collapseomatic_content textarea {
    	height: 300px;

    to admin/collapse-style.css and it works. Be sure you are using .collapseomatic_content textarea and not .collapseomatic textarea (my bad, fixed it in the answer above)

    Yes, that's the fix right there. Now I also have a larger perspective.

    Thank you for your time Baden! (and congrats if you're the owner, I've searched for such a plugin a LOT; wouldn't it be great that the premium version also includes a newsletter system that sends a mass email to the ones who subscribed for the event before the event starts or as a launch event? or something like that, i'm sure there are a lot of ways to expand this plugin)

    P.P.s. should I find a =1 and change it to =0 if i want to keep the "Digit Titles" collapsed the whole time? (widget menu - the thing is so long..")

    Update to version 2.2.3a will display all rockstar features as collapsed by default. This version of the plugin is only available on the Plugin Oven: http://plugins.twinpictures.de/plugins/t-minus-countdown/

    Let us know if it works for you!
