If your like me you'd hate for your forums to not look half way decent. If you get sick and tired of looking at this, with the text area all hanging out of the editor, then scroll down.

Then follow these steps below.

Open (jscripts/editor.js)

Find:
		// Determine the overall height and width - messy, but works
		w = oldTextarea.getDimensions().width+"px";
		if(!w || parseInt(w) < 400)
		{
			w = "400px";
		}
		if(this.options && this.options.height)
		{
			h = this.options.height;
		}
		else if(oldTextarea.offsetHeight)
		{
			h = oldTextarea.offsetHeight+"px";
		}
		else if(oldTextarea.clientHeight)
		{
			h = oldTextarea.clientHeight+"px";
		}
		else if(oldTextarea.style.height)
		{
			h = oldTextarea.style.height;
		}
		else
		{
			h = "400px";
		}
		this.editor.style.width = w;
		this.editor.style.height = h;
Replace With:
		// Determine the overall height and width - messy, but works
		w = "550px";
		h = "300px";
		this.editor.style.width = w;
		this.editor.style.height = h;

Find:
		textInput.style.height = parseInt(areaContainer.style.height)+"px";
		textInput.style.width = parseInt(areaContainer.style.width)+"px";
Replace With:
		textInput.style.height = "229px";
		textInput.style.width = "544px";

And you should end up with a fixed editor and textarea that looks like this.

You can play around with the height and width to your liking/size. This works and looks the same on IE, Firefox, and Chrome.

Tried editing templates and CSS. Much easier/faster to edit the JavaScript itself.
Thanks!!
