Textarea field in Feedback for Twenty Ten has wrong layout

  • Author

    I am setting up a feedback page for a wordpress.com site using the Theme Twenty Ten and the ‘textarea’ field doesn’t format correctly. All the other field types do.


    How do I get this fixed? – I can’t adjust my own CSS/html.

    The blog I need help with is dmsexpeds.org.uk.



    Please could a member of staff delete this post as when I google my site the only page that comes up is this one!!

    You cannot edit CSS unless you have purchased a custom design upgrade. Have you purchased one?

    Does the Custom Design upgrade let me edit HTML?
    No. The Custom Design upgrade allows you to edit fonts and CSS only. You can change the appearance of a theme, but not its HTML markup, PHP code, or content. You can choose to apply your custom fonts or custom stylesheet to any of the themes available on WordPress.com. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/#frequently-asked-questions


    We can’t see preview pages in your dashboard. You would have to publish the page before we volunteers can see it.


    If you are talking about the width of the text area, that is set by default at 80% and that is for all themes. It isn’t theme specific.


    Only on very rare occasions do staff delete forum threads.



    Thanks for replying:

    Have published it:


    In Internet Explorer and Firefox the Comment box title appears at the bottom of the text box displacing it to the right. I used the standard code for a custom form and it looks no different to the code for any of the other boxes.



    Interestingly it displays OK in Opera on my Android phone.


    Oh, that’s weird. I can fix it with CSS, but this is a bug that staff need to look into.

    Adding a width declaration to .contact-form label of 80% to match the text area fixes the problem.


    I’ll tag this for staff attention and hopefully one of them will see it, respond and fix the issue shortly.



    Thank you – glad to know it is not just me!


    You are welcome, and nope, not just you.



    That’s definitely a problem. We’re looking into it and we’ll let you know when it’s fixed.



    Hi dmsexpeds—thanks again for reporting this. The issue is fixed now.
