    please take a look at http://www.brightonhoney.com/about/contact/

    any thoughts why the labels are not displaying? I upgraded to 3.5.2 about a week ago but just noticed this today. I'v tried to deactivate a couple of suspect plugins and will continue to troubleshoot. TY!

    Hi Edward,

    I would guess that there are CSS rules that are interfering somehow. If you're using Firefox or Chrome, you can use the built-in code editor to examine the label elements and see which CSS rules are being applied. Look for any CSS that would hide the labels; for example, "display:none", "visibility:hidden", or other properties.

    Just realized the reason for this: in the previous version of the plugin, options were added for customization of labels. Visit "Field Captions & Placeholders" in the plugin settings and enter the values you prefer. Note: if the new placeholder options are blank, you can click the "Save Settings" button to set the new default settings for those options.

    Hi Jeff,
    I got back around to this as some folks complained about the google captcha. I disabled a bunch of suspect plugins but essentially nothing has changed, same and no mods perhaps minor update to the footer. I will leave it up if you want to take a look. TY!

    Hi Edward,

    It looks like the labels are there but just empty. You can define them in the plugin options under "Field Captions & Placeholders". After saving your changes and refreshing the page with the contact form the labels you define should be displayed.

    Ah! got it.. Thank you! That was easy and now a bit perplexed on what I may have done to lose the fields. Sorry to bother you.
