    Check box 'other' option - how can I make the text box wider and deeper?

    Asked by shineinternet on August 28, 2014 at 08:28 AM

    I have a series of checkboxes and have selected the 'other' option so a user can input some further opinions but can't see where I can edit the text box so that it is 5 rows deep and 60 wide? Any help most welcome.

    You can set your other option textboxes' width by writing some Inject CSS.

    For example:


    .form-checkbox-other-input {

    width: 750px !important;


    Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Have a good day.

    Thanks, I managed to work that out from another thread after posting. Would be better if it also gave an option to use either a text box as it is now but also a text area box as I would have liked it to have been 5 rows deep also as some users think that they only have enough room in the box available.
