Extend length of external theme input box

BMC Quickies

Quickie: Make the site manager a little more user friendly with this quick little code snippet.

The input box for external themes in the site manager has always annoyed me; it's hardly big enough to fit even the smallest of URLs (excluding relative URLs). You may or may not be equally annoyed by this. Either way, here's how to fix it:

#sm-appearance-external-url {
    width: 450px;

Add that in a CSS module on your admin:manage page, or in your site's custom CSS, and enjoy the freedom that a larger input box brings.
