I've had a few requests from my netizens <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="images/icons/smile.gif" /> .

1. The edit box that one types in while entering a new message is too small.

2. The length of the bio is too short.

I realize that these are probably easy things to hack, but I thought I'd bring it forward since it was feedback from actual users. Thanks

Hatter,

1. look in w3ttheme.pm and edit the following lines to whichever size you want:
<font color=blue>
# Default Textarea columns
$theme{'TextCols'} = 60;

# Default Textarea rows
$theme{'TextRows'} = 5;
</font color=blue>

2. I'm not sure that the message that you see <font color=blue>Bio (up to 250 characters)</font color=blue> is valid anymore... I just looked at the database structure and that field is now a <font color=red>text</font color=red> type, which I thought can hold a lot more that 250 characters... test it... maybe I'm wrong...

(a few minutes later...) I think that it would take a little bit more work than I thought to reset this length... you would have to do an alter table command in the database to change the fieldtype to blob (or whatever length you want....), but you would have to read up on what length that would actually give you... and then you would have to change the length check in changebasic.pl to the new limit...

Hope that helps!

Matt
