Using default value instead of form field for field title

  1. webseeker

    My form is looking neater with the limited space available using the default value to populate the actual field box with the field title instructions. So for example "Enter your name" is in the field rather than positioned above or to the left.

    The only thing with using the default value is that the user will need to select the text to enter their own details. Is there a way for the field to empty when the user clicks in the field to enter their details?

    Thanks for any help.

  3. That's one way to do it. There is also a 3rd party plugin available now which may help achieve the same result: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gravity-forms-placeholders/
