Topic Title Field Is Not Tall Enough (Lavender Theme)

  • I have upgraded my test/dev environment from v1.0.2 to v1.4.0 and now I notice that the topic title field height is too short! This is with the Lavender theme. It does not matter if I change the the editor window size.

    Thoughts on what may be wrong?


    Even the "empty template" does not fit:


  • Correction. I upgraded from v1.0.2 to v1.4.0

    That's an odd bug. Check your custom css and stuff. Are you on persona? What version of composer? Have you tried running ./nodebb build before starting NodeBB?

  • I am running Lavender.

    I do have custom CSS in the Appearance > Custom CSS / Custom Header section but removed it all and restarted the forum. Same problem.

    This is my composer version information:

    Default composer for NodeBB
    Installed 4.3.0 | Latest 4.3.0

  • Running ./nodebb build has not resolved the issue.

    Let me see if using my browser's developer tools can help identify what is setting that size.

    @rod is your forum public? I'd like to see this bug first hand.

  • I will PM you. My dev is sitting behind a basic auth page. One moment while I create an account both on the auth page and on the forum for you.

    @rod looks like you can fix it temporarily by using this css:

    @media (min-width: 992px) {
      .composer .title-container .title.form-control {
        padding: 3px 16px;
        height: auto;

    I'll see what I can do about fixing theme-vanilla and composer-default for the future.
