Is this plugin compatible with the latest version of TxP? I need a way to make the excerpt text area bigger.

I’m not sure the plugin is needed at all any more now that backend has auto-expanding textareas. You might be able to achieve what you want by placing a custom.css file in your /textpattern/admin-themes/hive/assets/css/ folder (if you’re using “hive” as your admin theme) with the following:

#excerpt {
    min-height: 200px;

Or whatever height you want. I’m not sure if that will be overridden by the auto-expanding script. Maybe try that with !important if so.

You can see an example of how to use custom.css in the GitHub repo. Make a note with your installation to copy that file before updating or you may unintentionally delete it when updating.

Re: rah_expanding // Dynamically growing textareas

Thanks. Works as advertised. I have copied the custom.css to all my sites and have a copy (with a comment of were it should reside) outside of /texpattern/ so i can never overwrite the file without having a backup.
