Default Text in Contact Form

    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.

    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.

    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]
