"Resizable" Posting Text-Field

Hi Paul,

I'm thinking about whether it is very hard to make the posting text area "resizable"?

Example: At the bottom-right of the text arena, there is a "+" and a "-" sign. Whenever we click on the "+" sign, the textarena will expand for something like 5 more rows?

I find this pretty useful, especially for posting long articles.

I've found this plugin. It seems pretty nice.

Demo:

However, the javascript's size is pretty heavy.

CC Paul: I know that maybe you would not like this feature. However, out of these two, which one would you pick? :D

I personally like the first one better and it could be useful indeed. Even though I'm sure web browsers will have this feature by default soon (it's already by default on chrome)...

There are addons for Firefox as well. However, since there are still many members using IE, it is good if we can make things easier for them.

I've just implemented the 1st one to my forum. It works really great. :)

Thanks for the comment Tom.

The most important thing is that you could already implement the above provided solution(s) into miniBB ;-)

I think I won't say my opinion on it, because we're trying to build-in only very native JavaScript in miniBB. I guess this is not the feature every member would need. If we would count on every feature like this, mini would become maxi very quickly.

That is true. MiniBB should stay on with its root purpose as much as possible. All of these addons are just to satisfy personal needs. :)
