Excellent plugin, very well made.

Would be great to add drop down menu support as William Wilkerson tried to do in his rip-off version. If you append the extra option with js rather than prepending it as he did, it will even work on most browsers. ;)

Thanks for a great plugin.

I love this plugin and use it on nearly project, this should honestly be part of the Gravity forms plugin itself.

Works perfect for my user scenario, which is simply to move the field label into the input.

Good Workaround, needs more features
By ,

This Add On works by taking whatever you have as the Field Label and hiding it, then using that for the placeholder text….you simply have to add a Class to the input on the Advanced tab.

SO it works, but isn't ideal in the event that you want your placeholder text to be different from your label, and/or you don't want the label hidden. It's a workaround at best for a feature that Gravity Forms SHOULD have built-in and that GF users have been requesting for a long, long time.

Until GF adds in a option to easily add placeholder text to all input fields, I hope the developers of this Add On will consider adding the ability to specify different placeholder text from the label, and the option to not hide the label.

But if all you need is to have the label appear inside of the input field as placeholder text then this works very well.
