Contact Form 7
Watermark / Placeholder in IE9 (2 posts)

    After a quick search on Google, and through these forums I haven't found a thread that would help me resolve the issue I've run in to.

    I intend to use the watermark feature to notify the user what they should enter in the fields of the form. I have a fairly simple form:

    [text* your-name watermark "Full Name"]
    [email* your-email watermark "Email Address"]
    [textarea your-message watermark "Message"]
    [submit "Send ยป"]

    The watermark text works flawlessly in Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE7 and IE8 (at least from the computers I've checked).

    However it doesn't seem to want to display the placeholder in IE9.

    Its strange that the most recent IE release is the one with the bug. Is this a known issue? My page is valid (well, nothing invalid that would effect this form) and doesn't have any jquery/javascript errors. I'm using google's latest version of jQuery, the latest version of WP, and the latest version of the plugin in a live testing area on my server.

    Thanks for any heads up.

    COntact form7 does not placeholders, I guess. It uses input titles as watermark which is some javascript renderings. Im really not sure but what i am sure of is that watermarks in Contact form 7 works fine in IE9. Placeholder works fine for me (in my IE9), too.

    Did a litmus test and its showing fine.
