Label/Description Form Styling

  1. Hi, I have some forms in a sidebar and wanted to just have a description in the form box that can be typed over...

    Say: First Name

    In the field box so dont want to show the label... to make form more compact...

    Im sure this used to be able to be done in form styling but just gives label placement now..top left right, and description above and below...

    So cant see how I just have a description in the box field?

    example of what I have http://aronagh.com/life-coach/

    in side bar, want say on Newsletter form to just have descriptions IN the boxes...

    Many thanks, in advance :)

    What your describing sounds like the HTML5 placeholder attribute that disappears when the user starts typing in the field, it can be accomplished by either using a plugin

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gravity-forms-placeholders/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gravity-forms-auto-placeholders/

    or if you only have a few fields a bit of jQuery would accomplish it as well, the following example would add the placeholder Name to field 1 of form 5

    <script>
    jQuery(document).ready(function($){
         $('#input_5_1').attr('placeholder','Name');
    });
    </script>

    Richard
