Default Text in Contact Form

  1. I was wondering if there was a way to add default text to certain text boxes (i.e. in the Name box the text: 'Please use full name' would automatically appear until the person either fills in the info or deletes the text)? I know that some fields are auto filled in, but I'd like to add some instructional text without extending the title. Thanks in advance.

    The blog I need help with is jackpointdarknet.wordpress.com.

  2. All you can do in the way of customization is stated here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/ If it's not stated there then you cannot include it in the customization of the form.

  3. You can add lines of formatted (color, bold, italic) text between parts of the contact form.

    [contact-form]
    ADD_INSTRUCTIONS_HERE
    [contact-field label="Name" type="name" required="true" /]
    [contact-field label="Email" type="email" required="true" /]
    ADD_OTHER_INSTRUCTIONS_HERE
    [contact-field label="Website" type="url" /]
    [contact-field label="Comment" type="textarea" required="true" /]
    [/contact-form]
