    can i change the field description's name?

    Asked by kpl_39 on July 08, 2013 at 10:56 AM

    for example: when i drag out the field "mobile phone," under the two text boxes there is "area code" and "phone number."

    if i want the two boxes to read "area code" and "cell number" how would i do this?


    the main reason i am asking is my website's "theme" is to have all text in lower-case and it is really bugging me to have all of the field descriptions with a capital letter starting each word.


    i tried running a form wide css code to acheive this but it didn't seem to work. 

    strong {
    text-transform: lowercase; /* force text to lowercase */


    does anyone have any suggestions on how to make the whole form lower-case and change the actual names of the field descriptions (not as important).

    The Custom CSS you should add is 

    .form-sub-label{ text-transform:lowercase; }

    This will make sub label all lowercase turning "Area Code" to "area code".

    If you need further assistance, please contact us again.

    that's exactly what i needed.

    i also figured out how to change the page break and submit icons by finding the div class with firebug and using the same css.


    thank you!
