[vbhacker] Mozilla Text Area Fix
Mod Version: 1.00, by sidhighwind (Member) sidhighwind is offline

vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 28
Released: 04 Jun 2002 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Not Supported  

This hack fixes the problem with Mozilla and the text area on the forum. Mozilla reads the width attribute different than netscape and causes the text area's to be narrow and very fustrating to use when you are typing in a lot of code or just a long message.

Description of what was changed:

I changed the function gettextareawidth to have mozilla use the width specified for IE instead of the width specified for Netscape.

I hope you all like my first hack.

Installed it and am no worse for the wear. I don't get many Netscape users on my site but this will at least make it "friendlier" for them. Thanks.

Excuse please! Can't this be done by going to admin cp, styles, modify, text width areas? I changed mine to 70 for NS 6.0 to 70 and the text area looks the same as IE now. I'm using Mozilla ver 1 RC3 and the text area looks the same on both IE and Moz.

Yes it can be done that way but if you get people that come to your forum with netscape 4.x it will look very wierd. That is why I did this hack.

What would you recommend for the setting for Netscape 6 and 7 and Netscape 4? Set them all to 70 like IE is?
