Description

9 years ago
The area where the article source is edited in the page editor should be a lot bigger (wider and taller).

Comment 1

Can you mockup how you want it to look like and attach it here?

Comment 2

There is a button on the left under "Edit" to make the edit field taller...is this not sufficient?

I don't think it can be wider, or it would conflict with the format of the page. But I made the default 10 rows taller in textareasize.php. That should help, unless a default is set somewhere else for $defaultRows
20 rows would have been taller than my 800px screen, which I think most people still have.
Comments?

Hrm; I see 21 rows by default on both http://support.mozilla.com/tiki-editpage.php?locale=en-US&page=*Clearing+Location+bar+history and http://support-stage.mozilla.org/tiki-editpage.php?locale=en-US&page=*Clearing+Location+bar+history; what am I missing?

They look the same to me as well.
Reopening until we know what's going on.  I see the patch, clearly, I'm just scratching my head as to why this isn't evident on support-stage; Smarty cache, perhaps?

So, since the line is:
$rows = isset($_REQUEST['rows'])? $_REQUEST['rows']: (isset($defaultRows)?$defaultRows: 30);

... maybe $defaultRows is set. If that is so, then it could have been set by an admin. I haven't used tiki wiki to know, but it seems that $defaultRows can be a variable stored in the db.

Ding! Got it! I set up a local copy of SUMO and logged in as admin.

Nelson: My SUMO db dump shows you were the admin user. Could you log in and change the textarea default size?

The link should be 
/tiki-admin.php?page=textarea

I see these as textfields:
-------
Default number of rows (wiki):  	
Default number of rows (comments): 	
Default number of rows (forum): 	
Default number of rows (forum replies):
-------

If anyone in this bug wants specific sizes or increase in comments or replies, say so please. So far the (wiki) and (forum) should be increased to ~30.

Done. No code committed, used admin rights to change prefs.

Re-opening.
This shouldn't be part of 0.7.2. Sorry for not making this clearer earlier. This is about making the content area wider as well as taller, and is part of the editor redesign.

So now it is both taller and wider, right? Why is it reopened?

Comment 12

AFAICT, it is not wider. If this were to be applied to the current editor, that would constitute getting rid of the "Edit" button to the left of the content area. Again, I'm sorry for not clarifying this earlier. My fault. :-(
Chris, can you submit a screenshot of how it looks like today and how you want it to look like?

Sounds good, when would we like to have this?
Suggest Future since this hasn't been requested by other article editors (that I'm aware of, at least). If there are no lower priority bugs in your todo list, Paul, feel free to submit a patch. :)

We can get this done when we get to an editor-redesign milestone.

There is a full screen mode in recent versions of Tiki:
http://doc.tikiwiki.org/Fullscreen

You can swap from normal to fullscreen when in edit mode.
