Textbox more constricting than tighty-whiteys January 8, 2003 9:31 PM   Subscribe

Could we make the Post a Link page's description field be a bit bigger? On my most recent FPP post, I found that I was using a lot of markup (really the first time I had done markup this extensive for a FPP) and having trouble making code changes/editing content because the textbox just seems a bit constricting. Also, this could be helpful for Metatalk as well.

I worry that people might write longer posts in a larger description box, out of an unconscious desire to fill all that empty space. Why not just compose in an external editor?

On my most recent FPP post

your front page post post? I think the external editor is really the way to go, otherwise folks with low rez will have to do a lot of scrolling. Nice chunky post though.

LCD Display, PC Computer, PIN Number, SSN Number; these (and many more that I have forgotten) courtesy of #MeFi.

rushmc: Think "redundant." (M = machine, for instance.) Not that there's anything wrong with these phrases—except for "FPP post," since Matt doesn't like "FPP."

Matt doesn't like FPP as an acronym?

No. Nor do many of the rest of us.

Ah, thanks for the clarification. I've had the flu this week and my head's still fuzzy.
