Since the launch of this plugin, several people have reported that autogrow wasn’t working properly in IE. After trying to fix the JS, I’ve came across a better jQuery plugin: Growfield.
I’ve also included the init script in wp-footer to avoid an extra HTTP request.
What does this mean for you? No more errors in IE and a slightly faster page load.
I was using the autogrow script for my Front-End Editor plugin and thought it would be also useful for the comment textarea.
So I wrote this small plugin. To test it, start typing in the comment section below. Don’t press submit because that’s not the point.
