Is this possible or do I have to change the backend/source code to achieve it? Has anyone pulled this off? If so, how'd you do it?

Can you give more details on what you are trying to achieve?

Cheers,

When the user checks the box for "other" in a multiple choice question I would like to show them a textarea instead of a text box so that they can enter more than 1 line and they can see more than 1 line. By default LimeSurvey provides a single line text box.

The easiest solution would be to not use the built-in "Other" feature but add your own "Other" option. You could then add a following long-text question shown conditionally on "Other" being checked.

That's what I'm doing now, but I don't like having the separate questions. I really don't care about the difficulty it takes to achieve this, I just want to achieve it. You wouldn't happen to know what part the source code I would need to modify to place a textarea on the screen instead of a textbox, would you?

Sorry, I can't help with hacking the source code to that degree.
