    Comment boxes

    In Mozilla Nightly, Comment boxes have a new feature that allows you to re-size them freely. Ubuntu forums doesn't use standard comment boxes that enable this feature, which seems like an incredibly useful feature to me for typing replies and especially for use with the code boxes. Is there a particular reason for this or could they be given this feature without breaking other features?

    Edit: I just checked and Aurora has the same feature.

    I believe this is to do with the vBulletin styling. I can't remember whether that has changed in the vBulletin 4.x series.

    Do you mean the boxes used to write your post? If so I can resize mine while I'm typing

    Five years I've been a forum member, and I've never noticed this feature before. Time to get my eyes tested. :sigh:


    Please do not PM me about your forum account unless you have been asked to. The correct place to contact an admin about your account is here.

    I've never noticed this either. I guess you really do learn something new everyday. But changing the size of the comment box doesn't help me in any way.

    Re: Comment boxes

    Clicking that button in firefox will show what your post looks like with and without formatting. In your post it shows it with formatting. See the attached two images of this post for an example.
