Gravity Forms v.1.9 introduced HTML5 Placeholders and field label visiblity features. As of v.1.9.1 field label visibility feature is hidden by default and can be enabled using:
**add_filter( ‘gform_enable_field_label_visibility_settings’, ‘__return_true’ ); **
This plugin is NOT compatible and will not be supported with Gravity Forms 1.9 and above.
The plugin extends the default Gravity Forms form editor to support native HTML5 placeholders and label management.
It allows you to define placeholders for a wide variety of build-in fields and to customize field labels & sublabels by either overriding the default with your own and/or allowing you to hide them individually.
It is fully compatible with WPML for placeholder and label translation using the Gravity Forms Multilingual plugin.
