Field Label INSIDE of field


#1

How can I make the field names show up inside of the fields themselves, rather than above or to the side as usual?

I’m talking about the kind where there is text pre-populated, (i.e. “Name”), then when the user clicks inside the field the text disappears so they can enter their info. Thanks for your time!

Hi Scott - you can do that pretty easily by embedding some custom Javascript on your page.

We’ve got a tutorial showing you how to do that here: http://support.unbounce.com/entries/4…

That said, there is some research/testing that suggests even though placeholder text can look nicer from a design perspective, it can create extra friction for some users, which can actually hurt your conversion rates (here’s one article on that), so I’d recommend testing a variant with placeholder text vs. a variant with regular labels.

Has anyone already tested themselves and found that the placeholder text helped?

Hi there - we just migrated our documentation over to a slightly different platform. Redirects were supposed to be created automatically, but in some cases they weren’t generated properly. Here’s the new link http://documentation.unbounce.com/hc/en-us/articles/203799174-Adding-and-Editing-Form-Fields#content…

Are you checking out the page via preview? Or published page? 

If it still isn’t working on the published page, shoot us an email at support@unbounce.com and we’ll see what we can do to help out.

Now I see the label inside the field but the Label outside the field is still showing how do I remove this.

Hi Lenny, 

There is a checkbox in your form builder that would hide the labels.
