Textarea fields Not Showing
- Current version - 1.8.8
- Release date - 16/05/2022
For contest entries textarea fields display the labels but not the entry boxes. Attached is a screen shot of the from end showing the missing textarea boxes as awell as a screenshot of the backend field setup.
I have tried to set up new fields, convert fields, but the resutls are the same. No entry boxes for the text area fields.
Unfortunately, Kunena forum decreased the resolution of the screenshot, and it is hard to see anything (we will change forum settings). but according to the screenshot, I see there is a problem with styles in general.
I suppose there is an incompatibility of Joomla template and component template. (different frameworks)
Try doing these steps:
1. Select another template in component options. E.g. default. It is a universal one.
2. Try to assign another Joomla template.
Also, maybe some 3rd party extension affects the styles (e.g. JCH optimizer).
Like our extensions and support?

I tried multiple templates. Nothing changed. However, I started looking at the source code and realized that there is no input field associated with the text area.
For comparison, I copied the source code of the "Name of Entry" field and "Long Description" field's below:
Name of Entry Field HTML
<label id="jform_custom_field_6-lbl" for="jform_custom_field_6">
Name of Entry</label>
<input type="text" name="jform[custom_field_6]" id="jform_custom_field_6" value="" size="100" maxlength="100">
'Long Description Field HTML
<label id="jform_custom_field_7-lbl" for="jform_custom_field_7">
Notice that there is an input control following/associated with the Name of Entry field, however there is no input control field code associated with the Long Description field (between the <div class="controls"> </div> code)
I think this may be the problem
