    Rename EditableTextFields Link to this post

    Hello all!

    I just installed the user defined forms and have a small contact form up and running already. Only thing I´d like to know is: can I rename those EditableTextFields?? In the edit-tab it only lets me change the label name but when I receive the emails it like:

    EditableTextField1:
    blablabla
    EditableTextField2:
    blablabla
    EditableTextField3:
    blablabla
    EditableTextField4:
    blablabla

    and so on... not quite so sexy :-/

    Are you sure you entered the title of the field in the cms? The email should pull the title from the form field into the email. If you could post a screenshot of your cms setup that would be good to check.

    Hi Willr!

    Yes, I filled out all relevant fields (see attached screenshot...sorry it´s in German but you´ll get the idea). My first thought was that maybe there´s the "save changes" button missing? All I can do is show and hide options....
    I just sent myself another testmail with the same results:

    Anfrage von rs-reisen.at

    EditableTextField11
    test
    EditableTextField12
    marina
    EditableTextField13
    bla
    and so on.....

    except for that the contact form works fine! but it´d be nice to solve that tiny issue

    It is because you haven't filled in any information in the label fields. The right title is used for extra information but the main label is the one where it is blank in your case, i.e https://skitch.com/willrossi/fnd6p/screen-capture5.png-781x650

    You're not the first to have that issue. I need to include some default text in the label like '(label)' so it explains it a little better. Guess it's not very clear!
