    HTML text areas not displaying properly on website

    Asked by twenty20 on March 02, 2011 at 01:41 PM

    My name is Sarah St. John and my user ID is twenty20. On my form $1 Phone Calls, I have two HTML text areas, but for some reason when those areas display on my webpage, it cuts it off. I've tried everything I can think of to fix it, including smaller text, etc, and nothing is working...can you please assist.

    The content area of the page where you posted the form has only a
    width of 540 while the form created has a width of 650.
    When adding it to the page the text area  is displayed all through out
    the 650 width the remaining text exceeding the 540 width then
    gets cut off. 

    You can resize the form width in JotForm to 500 so that the text are
    wrapped and  shown in full.

    Here's how to change the width of the form:

    1. Open the Form

    2. Click on 'Setup and Share'

    3. Select 'Preferences'

    4. Choose the 'Form Style Tab' and change the Form Width to 500
