Lack of Textarea in Survey Module

Hey Joe,

As always, great work - you've gotten my nomination for the best open source CMS.

The survey module is a very intuitive way of building pages/questions, and it's worked perfectly for me for surveys requiring very short answers.  However, now I'm needing to develop a survey that asks for user comments at the end.  I tried using a simple textbox, and then resizing it with CSS, but it falls a bit short, because, even though I can make the textbox look like a textarea, I can't get the text to wrap.  An example of this behavior can be seen here (Question 3 and on).  Anyways, there may have been a good reason not to include memo fields in the survey, but I was wondering if you had any ideas/workarounds/planned inclusions in mojo...

Thanks, Shaun

I will take a look at this when I get a chance and see about adding an option for text area. It shouldn't be too difficult to add one.

Thanks for the nomination! Much appreciated.

Best,

Joe

Re: Lack of Textarea in Survey Module

Just coming across this issue myself - no textarea in Survey, but otherwise a nice simple tool.  Is this coming?

Re: Lack of Textarea in Survey Module

Hi,

I have no plans to improve the Survey feature because that would only canabalize sales of Form Wizard Pro which is how I make my living. If you need  a better survey, you could clone it and modify it yourself or support my work by purchasing Form Wizard Pro.

Best,

Joe

Re: Lack of Textarea in Survey Module

OK thanks Joe. We've been on the edge of purchasing Forms Wizard Pro a few times now, so I'll look at this again.
