 add/fast reply class?
forgive me if this has been posted, i looked but i couldn't find anything!

i know you can change the quick edit text area so it's separate from the textinput/forminput class (using .quick-edit textarea), i was wondering if you could do the same for the add reply and fast reply?

my forminput currently reads like


.textinput, .forminput, .codebuttons, .radiobutton, .checkbox {
    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4);
   border: 1px solid #447174;
   color: #fff;
   font-family: lato, sans-serif;
   font-size: 8px;
   padding: 2px;
   vertical-align: middle;
   text-transform: uppercase;
   letter-spacing: 0.15em;


.quick-edit textarea {font-family: verdana; font-size: 11px; text-transform: none; letter-spacing: 0px }

i'd ideally like the add/fast reply to resemble the quick edit text area more than the textinput/forminput (which is a little more stylized/less legible). is there a way to do it? let me know if you need more information/code to answer this!

All posting textareas have a name attribute of 'Post', which you could use to indiscriminately target them. Alternatively, the quick reply textarea has a distant parent of #qr_open, and the main replier has a distant parent of #posting-form. You can find these in a snap using your browser's development tools.
thank you so much for the prompt reply! i'll definitely mess around with qr_open and posting_form, but is there any chance you could elaborate on the name attributes of post? i'm not the best at parsing out code verbally, i'm afraid!!

edit: posting_form and qr_open worked wonderfully!! no need to reply unless you like educating newbie coders on page attributes haha thank you so much!

'Attributes' are just additional information keywords for page elements. Technically, class and id are attributes.

<textarea cols="70" rows="8" name="Post" class="textinput" tabindex="1"></textarea>

In this fast-reply textarea element, there are five total attributes. With CSS selectors, you can select it through a number of different means (not counting siblings/descendant selectors). First would be the class selector, which you use as .textinput as normal. You could select it via its element name, textarea, but this will select all textareas on the page. You could narrow that down by using any of the four attributes as a parameter - for example, textarea[name="Post"], or [tabindex="1"], etcetera, will select only the textarea elements that have that matching attribute value.

Is this issue solved or should we leave it open for further discussion?
