Edit 'Select an option' on drop-down

  1. Is it possible to edit the text on a drop-down that says 'Select an option'?

    I'd like to change it so that it says 'Select a Date'

    Thanks.

    Hi Joe,

    If you are talking about a dropdown with the enhanced user interface enabled then you should be able to accomplish that by using some jQuery added to your page like so, changing the input id to match your actual input, 17 is the form number and 1 the field number

    <script>
    jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
    $("#input_17_1").attr("data-placeholder", "select date");
    });
    </script>

    Regards,
    Richard

  3. Sorry, I messed the reply on this one.

    Where do I add that? I just added it to the theme functions file and it gave me the error I get when something is wrong in there.

    Thanks

  4. Don't worry, that was me being a plonker. I looked into it and see that it goes in the header :)

    Thanks for the help.
