Last week, I needed to write a WordPress plugin which adds cross-browser support for the placeholder attribute for input fields.
<input type=”text” name=”first_name” value=”" placeholder=”First Name” />
The field above will display the words First Name within the input field without changing the value attribute. The placeholder attribute is already supported in new versions of Firefox and Chrome but my plugin adds support for Internet Explorer (of course).
This can be useful for contact forms, optin forms, ..heck..any form.
Only download my plugin if you understand what it does and you actually need it.
