Greetings,

I have several users that typically write very long posts. Does anybody know what code I need to change to establish a new default height for the Quick Reply and Reply message blocks?

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

If you use K 4.0 + Blue Eagle (most people use this template), you can use the enlarge/shrink settings to adjust the size of the Message area. If you want to make the default size large, you can adjust it with a bit of CSS (something like):
#Kunena table#kpostmessage .ktxtarea {
    height: 400px;
}

No problems, mate. Glad to have been of some service. The CSS I gave you works with the "standard" Reply form. The Quick Reply form needs to be tweaked differently. One of the problems in applying a tweak to the Quick Reply form is to restrict the scope.

Personally, because I'm one of those "weird" guys who likes to to have the BBcode toolbar available to do all the fancy formatting, etc., I rarely use the Quick Reply form. I guess it's just a personal preference. Most people (possibly as high as 90% of people) who use web-based discussion forums just type words and never use emoticons, or bolding, italicising, underlining, and so forth. Although those features are accessible if you use the Quick Reply version, it requires some understanding of BBcode .

Perhaps—because people often rarely do anything more than type plain text—that's another reason why the new Crypsis template makes the Quick Reply form accessible with a single mouse-click but the standard Reply form requires two mouse-clicks? It puzzles me why it's done like that. For me, anyway, it's a bit of a nuisance and, perhaps, that's a further reason why people seem to be reluctant to use Crypsis on their sites, opting to use Blue Eagle instead? :unsure:
