One of the great strengths of Perch is the flexibility to construct content forms that match the nature of your content. Often you know when a field like a
textarea should expect a little or a lot of content.
A perfect example of this a news article – you might have a big
textarea for the main body of the article, and a much smaller one for an introductory paragraph used for a listing elsewhere on the site.
You can set the size of a
textarea in your template:
<perch:content type="textarea" size="xl" ... />
The size options are based on t-shirt sizes:
xxl. You can read about the other options for
textareas on the textarea documentation page.
