Change the word "other" in"Enable "other" choice" in Radio button opti

  1. I want to use custom level (especially to match foreign language) for the the word "other" in "Enable "other" choice" in Radio button option. Is there any way to do that?

    My 2nd problem is I am using "gf_list_5col" CSS style for the 3rd radio buttons in this site .But the "other" choice text box is showing below the radio button instead of the same row. Please help me to correct the issue.

  2. Hi, I would also like to edit the "other" text. I don't want to do it globally, but per form. Looking forward to your response.

  3. You can use the gform_other_choice_value filter to change the "Other" placeholder text:

    However, I believe that is only possible globally, not per form. It might be possible to add some logic to the function to change it conditionally, based on what form is being displayed, but I haven't seen anyone do that yet.

  4. If you know which page the form will be embedded in always, you can test for the page ID and then conditionally change the text. This worked for me:

    add_filter('gform_other_choice_value', 'set_placeholder');
    function set_placeholder($placeholder){
        global $post;
        // my form is embedded in post 1006
        if (1006 == $post->ID) {
            return 'Enter your own value';
        else {
            return 'Other';

  5. Is it also possible to set user-editable text instead of the disappearing placeholder?

  6. Nick, I am going to close this topic because your question is unrelated to the question which is being discussed here.
