Font sizes in text area

Hi, Does anyone know how to reduce the font size of a textarea please (on a contact form). The default seems to be that the font of the question is far smaller than the font of the textarea that the respondent must type into. So I can adjust the font-size in Themes, but then either the question font is too small to read or the textarea font is too big to type sensibly! Clearly it needs some code, but I run out of expertise at that point. Any help very gratefully received!

Hi @MK_Steve,
I’m sure someone can help but you need to give some more info. Theme and a URL of the page in question so that someone can have a look.

Thanks Scott,
Sorry; the URL wasn’t a good example. Best explained by - If you take the standard contact form in Rapidweaver, it’s the text size when a user types into the textarea box that is the problem; it comes out too big compared to the rest of the font sizes (labels etc). Is there some code I can but in to make that input text smaller?

Each theme will handle styling differently (and some don’t require extra code). It looks like your theme is Kiki from Yuzool. I’m not at my Rapidweaver computer but maybe @kryten can say if there are built-in settings for that theme?

Hi Steve,
I am quite sure it can be adjusted but it depends on the Theme as to whether or not you may need a little CSS. Without a URL, and not knowing thetheme I can’t give you specifics.

LOL @jabostick musta been typing at the same time, I hear he is a rocket fast typer

Thanks @jabostick and @MK_Steve

I’m also not at my Mac just now but from memory I don’t think there are any settings in Kiki that will control the form input font size specifically. If you would like to post a URL or raise a ticket AND provide a URL over on the yuzoolthemes support system:
I’m pretty sure we could find a solution for you :slight_smile:

…such as adding this CSS to the CSS global or page code container:

.form-input-field, .form-input-textarea {
    font-size: 1.1em;

All - many thanks!

I can’t remember the theme, and didn’t know where to find it (see I’m really too inept to be typing on here at all)!

However Stuart’s (krypton) -your code worked beautifully (popped it into CSS on the page)… brilliant, and perfect text size now!

Many thanks Stuart, you’re a star! Really appreciated.
