How is it possible to size formfield widths for Joomlas Protostar Template?

<field name="titel"
required="false" />

I've tried different possibilities, but none of them are working. class="inputbox span3", size="10", "input.span3", "inputbox.span3", size="span3"

thx, Perino

  • Protostar is for the front-end. What are you trying to do?

  • Yes, I know that Protostar is for the front-end. Im creating a formular with different input fields. These input fields should have different widths. One of these fields should be a textarea field. But this is displayed with the standard editor. How can I display the textarea box normal without editor?

  • What's the CSS for your formfield? Do you have a live demo we can look at?

The following classes can be added to your input field in order to control the size:

class="inputbox input-mini"
class="inputbox input-small" 
class="inputbox input-medium"
class="inputbox input-large"
class="inputbox input-xlarge"
class="inputbox input-xxlarge"

The size="45" parameter seems to be overridden by the CSS class .inputbox, forcing the width to 206px. Adding any of the classes above will solve this.
