I've searched all over for an answer to this, and can't find what I'm looking for.

I have contactbuddy installed in a widget, above some other text. The 'message' field that displays is quite tall, and pushes the other content down more than I'd like. How do I go about changing the displayed height of the message field?

Hi Tobin, :)

Thanks for posting this, and welcome to the forums!

In your ContactBuddy folder, edit the contactbuddy.php file, on line 202, change the value

rows="8"


to something like

rows="4"


to bring the message box size down. Please let me know how it goes.

Regards,

Bes

Thanks Bes, but I tried that, and it didn't work. I tried all sorts of values there, and nothing seemed to change. Perhaps I should mention that I'm using this in Widget mode.

I did find a solution, although probably less than ideal. I went to the contactbuddy.php, and in the same section you referenced, added this line

style="width:189px; height: 74px";

right after the class="cbfit"

Hi Tobin, :)

Thanks for the reply. Hmmmm, the widget mode may be doing it, though it should still work. Do you have a url where you have this up and running as a widget?

Maybe I can take a look and see which specific code to change for your case to make the height smaller.

Regards,

Bes

Hi,

this should ideally be done using CSS, without having to modify the plugin files (since these will be overwritten when you update the plugin).

Like Bes said, always add a link to your site so we can look into this, and provide specific targeted support, but theoretically, if you add the following code at the end of your themes stylesheet style.css:

li.contactbuddy-message-input .cbfit { 
height: 30px;
}
it should be ok (modify height to your likings of course),
