Unable to resize commentform textarea to keep it from spilling into next column.

    1st off let me say I have only been experimenting with Graphene for about a week but I am really liking all the opportunities this theme allows for one to be creative.

    OK so here is the rundown. I installed the Graphene theme and through this very good site for information I was able to successfully install the Graphene child theme and I have been able to learn how to resize the header with the custom css and I believe I’ve been able to successfully implement an action hook in the header. None of which I could of never done if not for all the great help this site provides.

    Here is where I am stuck.

    In a post my nested comments bleed into the column to it’s right. I used firebug and I believe the css code to resize the comment form text area is as follows,

    .three-columns #commentform textarea {
    width: 512px;
    }

    Yet when I change the width to say 390px nothing happens. Do I need to also add some php code to the child functions.php?

    I appreciate any help on this Thanks in advance.

    Here is the site as is since it’s still under construction.

    Update:

    So after some digging I’ve been able to resize the comment form and the text area with the following css code in the child stylesheet.

    #commentform {
    width: 400px !important;
    }
    .three-columns #commentform textarea {
    height:200px !important;
    width:390px !important;
    }

    I still would appreciate some advice on if this was the best method.

    Try adding !important to the width property, like so:

    .three-columns #commentform textarea {
    width: 390px !important;
    }
