Moved to MOD/Styles support.

What for style are you using? on a default prosilver the text area is already on a max width, so why do you want to enlarge it ?

I use Divine Black based on subsilver2 using ver 304

I am more wanting to make it higher rather than wider

Thanx

That would be what I want

I’ll try it once phpbb.co is back online unless you know a better link?

open

posting_body.html

and look for the 'textarea' tags

change the value of the rows and cols as you wish

Save, upload, and purge the cache.

I dont know the style (so its totally untested) but it should do what you want. Remember to back up first

This won’t work

It does:

After installing this simple mod, you can easily resize textarea editor by drag and drop it.

The template already allows this but thanx anyway
