Looking to put placeholder text in your inputs? ….
So, i’m no technical genius so i don’t have a solution that adds a nice new “placeholder” text entry field in the field manager, but below is what i did to get it working on fields using the title attribute as the placeholder text, which is what i wanted.
As usual, this is probably an update to the core which will be overwritten on updates so be careful . . .
In plugins/user-meta/views/generateField.php around line 343 you have the start of the field value builder:
Above i have added “placeholder” => $fieldTitle, where i stole the $fieldtitle from the “label” in the first instance.
So thats how to do it, just took a while to find that this is where the attributes were being built, and i should have paid attention to Dreamweaver not allowing me to modify the plugin files while i was testing . . . make the change using WP editor if possible.
I could probably develop an entry box into the admin, but i can’t be bothered and it is an update to a core file, so will leave it for the feature requests, but this will work for me atleast for now.
