Contact Form Placeholder Stack
adds placeholders to your contact forms
This stack makes is possible to populate form input fields in a built in RapidWeaver contact form with example text that disappears on focus. Optionally, you can hide the labels to create a minimalistic, cleaner form.
Bonus: with this stack, you can also remove that useless reset button.

This stack is based on the jQuery Form Example Plugin 1.6.0.
by Paul Mucur and uses the jQuery Extra Selectors
plugin by Keith Clark to make the CSS for hiding the labels work in older versions of Internet Explorer.Limitations
- At present, this stack supports a maximum of 8 form items. If you want to use it on bigger forms, just let me know. With enough interest, I’ll be happy to increase that number.
- This stack works in recent versions of all major browsers, including Internet Explorer 7 and newer. It is supposed even to work in Internet Explorer 6, but I didn’t bother to test that.
- At present, this stack can not be combined with the Contact Form Populator stack!
