Hi folks

Just a quick top tip for any beginners out there:

To remove a label from your form:

Type in the word 'clear' and the label will no longer be shown!!


Using the Article Title field in the Article site form as an example...

It has the word 'Title' in the column called Label. 

Click the pencil icon to enter the field's config settings.

2

The Label has the word 'Title'.

3

The form when viewed from the front end of the site shows the word 'Title'.

4

Return to the field's config,remove the label and leave it blank i.e. delete the word 'Title'. 

Click save.

5

The form when viewed from the front end of the site now shows the words 'Article Title'.

6

The Field's title, as shown in the Field's config settings is now being used as the label. 

Enter the word 'clear' in to the Label in the Field's config settings. 

Click save.

As a shortcut you can override the Label from the config area.

Change the value in the forms 'Label' column to 'clear'.

Hey Bucklash,

Thanks for taking the time to post this. I was very heartened by your assertion on another forum post where you said that the "community needs to step up a bit". This is what an Open Source community is all about. It's about give and take.

Feel free to post content like this on the Tutorials Page - http://www.seblod.com/resources/tutorials

Cheers,

James

Hi James

Thanks for that. I assume from your reply I got it all correct :)

I'm not sure I know enough to create a formal tutorial. Putting these sort of posts on the forum allows others to slap me down if I get it wrong. Not been slapped yet :)
