Sweet. Thanks for the work
This plugin is able to change the size of the textarea where you can write/edit a post. To use the plugin install it first and go to your profile page in Dashboard -> Users -> CLICK YOUR USERNAME. There you will find a setting like this:

Sweet. Thanks for the work
Cool. I hacked this in quite a while ago so it will be swell to see how you did it with a plugin. Perhaps it will inspire and enable a plugin that makes extra hooks to alllow moving toolbars to different places than above the post area, which is what motivated bumping into what I was doing when I discovered where to hack the post textarea size.
I just installed this. It is GREAT! B) I love this plug-in.
Thanks for making it available.
Is there a reason why it should be at least 16 ?
No there is no reason at all, but 16 happens to be default without the plugin. Max is now set at 40. I want a max there. Adding ridiclous numbers should be avoided.
But do you have a particular reason to go lower than 16 lines?
The only reason I have is :
In a particular bloginstallation, I use the blogs for just type in 1 line of txt
If I lower it to lets say 5, then the complete admin area is on my window and I don't have to scroll..
So if there is no reason why it should be 16, I would let it open to the user to pick a nice number.
And offcourse you should limit it, but 16 was not the number I had in mind ;) (40 is though)
It's all fine with me. There are only limits to prevent errors, not to annoy admins ;)
Grab a fresh copy from the [url=https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=160495]evocms-plugins repository[/url]
A new version is ready for testing. It works fine but is prone to some additional development. In stead of a setting, I made a draggable bar under the textarea. Very AJAX. Very jquery. In fact the first AJAX and jquery I did, so with a little pride I can say: download this one, it's cute.
See a later post for current download link.
Much nicer.... well done.
And then a personal question :
would it be possible to start with a small field (like the equivalent of 6 lines) and then make it bigger as you wish depending on the post you are writing... would that be possible ?
I was about to forget you ;)
The latest version has it all. Download [url=http://downloads.sourceforge.net/evocms-plugins/resize_admin_textarea_plugin-0.5.zip]resize_admin_textarea-0.5.zip[/url] and have fun.
I have disabled the previous "Ajax" version and installed your latest version however the jquery drag function is not appearing or working.
I have Unticked the "rows" box and Ticked the Jquery box however nothing shows up at the posting screen.
Wat does view source say in the admin write/edit section?
Make sure the files jquery.textarea.minimal.js and gruppy.png or summat are in the plugin folder. I had some troubles zipping the correct files.
Ok, the zipped file only has the single _resize_admin_textarea.plugin.php and ReadMe file in it
I'll fiddle with it and see what comes up :)
Just to confirm
Move the grippie.png and the jquery.textarea.minimal.js into the new install and it works like a charm :)
As soon as all international servers are aware of the new upload, try version 0.5 at https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=160495 . Same files new package.

It's a perfect plugin !
Just a typo in the description :
Change default size: Ables a change of the default textarea size on a per user basis (see User settings.)
I guess it's Enables
