Problem sizing fields in form

Okay gang I am stumped.

I am trying to finish up my Portfolio Page and I am running into issues when trying to size the input fields in my contact form.

My biggest issue is with the TEXTAREA field in particular. Here is what it looks like now (09-05-2016). Please scroll to the bottom and look at the last field “What shall we talk about?” I want this to be a textarea field so they can type a longer answer than the other standard fields.

I have tried changing the CSS code, altering the textarea rows variable, but nothing seems to affect it. Any ideas or suggestions?


A multiline text area has its own tag: <textarea>. But for some reason I can only adjust the number of rows, but its max-width is stuck.
