[resolved] Watermark showing as default value.... :/ (3 posts)

    Can you help me figure out what to do in order to get the watermark function to work?

    On the back end it looks like this:

    <p>Your Name (required): <br />
    [text* first-name watermark "First"] [text* last-name watermark "Last"]</p>

    On the front end you can see it is simply default text:

    Help please! Thank you!

    Apparently the watermark option is ignored. Try deactivating all other plugins and switching to the default theme.

    Can you tell us what is required from the theme's side to support the watermarking feature in CF7? I'm working on a custom theme and I have the same problem.

    EDIT: I figured it out!

    I missed out on putting wp_head() and wp_footer() in the theme's header and footer files (before </head> and </body> respectively. This caused some JS and CSS to not get included, making the validation as well as watermarking fail.

    I hope this helps someone!

    :-)
