Adjustable height/number of rows on textarea

  • A edit page gets really long with a couple of layout rows which has a textarea or two.

    Sometimes you might need less lines than the default so it would be nice if this could be set somewhere.

  • Hi @vaktmester,

    Thanks for taking the time to request a feature. I have added it to our report for Elliots attention. 🙂

  • Hi @vaktmester

    Thanks again for the feature request. A new setting for Rows has been added to the textarea field. Currently, this has been pushed to github and will be released soon.


  • Thanks for including the feature in the latest update!

    However it does not work properly for textareas with few lines.

    I guess because of this CSS rule in input.css (line 174):

    .acf_postbox .field textarea {
    min-height: 150px;
  • I’ll second what vaktmester is saying – the CSS he notes prevents this great feature from working with only a few lines.

  • Thirded. As a temporary fix, you can use the following in functions.php:

    function textarea_temp_fix() {
    	echo '<style type="text/css">.acf_postbox .field textarea {min-height:0 !important;}</style>';
  • Agreed. Thanks for the fix though.

  • That temp fix isn’t working for me. Elliot, how can we fix this??
