Asterisk replacement

  1. http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/any-way-to-change-the-required-field-asterisk-to-something-else#post-10911

    Not sure where to put the script.

    and as is?

    in

    page.php or functions php

    I'm thinking this is a lame question....

  9. Gotta be a theme issue, what happens if you turn off the "enhanced user interface" for the drop down?

  10. The first time I loaded your site today, there was no form and there were jQuery errors. I refreshed though and see the form. Screenshot http://minus.com/mxCuJi0jt/

    I have no idea how you did that honestly. Can you go back to where you were a day ago. Or, duplicate the form, embed that in a new page, without the jQuery to change the asterisk? Then we can start over and check at each step of the way.

  15. @Joseph, where are you with this right now? Is the enhanced interface for the drop down fixed (looks like it is)? And we are back to the original question?

    If we're talking about replacing the asterisk, please let us know exactly what you did, what code you used, and where you placed it. Thank you.

    This is where I pasted it

    I dont want to put it on live as it will affect the forms

  17. Looks like you found that code in this post (I am posting the link here for reference):
    http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/any-way-to-change-the-required-field-asterisk-to-something-else#post-10911

    If that's the case, can you make this small modification to it: add the $ inside the function():

    [js]
    <script type="text/javascript">
    	jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
    		$(".gform_wrapper .gfield_required").html("* required field");
    	});
    </script>

    There is only one character changed between what you used and what I suggest. I put this in effect on this page using a similar approach: http://gravity.chrishajer.com/simple-image-upload/

    I don't think that was what messed up your page layout, but I do know that change made this code work on my site. Without seeing your page in a broken state, it's going to be hard for us to see what caused the problem.

    You can always make it live for a minute then check the W3C validator to see if there are any syntax errors which would cause a layout problem like that.

  19. It seems to have worked, on all pages but one. However that might be due to browser cache
