Is there a way to make the default size smaller so it becomes unnecessary to resize?

Its save in Members/username.vars after click Preview/Send Posts.

Code
Select All
'postlayout',"130|425|10|0"

Interesting, didn't know about that feature. That fixes it for my user experience, but I can't expect all forum users to do that. Is there a way to make the default size smaller so it becomes unnecessary to resize?

CJ's answer should solve your problem. Hover your cursor over the right hand side border of the textarea and you should see a small arrow appear - then just drag the textarea back to the left to resize it.

Hi,

Any chance of a screenshot so I can see what you mean?

When I type PMs on my forum, it scrolls side to side when entering text. Where can I find the variable to make the box smaller?

Thanks!
