    How to remove captcha hint text or placeholder

    Asked by terrafertile on September 08, 2014 at 07:15 PM

    Hi.

    There is text in the answer field of Captcha which I´m unable to delete. The text displays on two forms: Contatos em geral and Contato comercial.

    On My Forms page of Jotform the text is not being displayed. Only it can be seen on my website.

    How can I delete that text, please? I have tried but I was unsuccessful.

    Thanks a lot.

    Bárbara.

    Hi Barbara,

    Inject the following CSS codes to your form if you want to remove the captcha placeholder (hint text).

    input[name="recaptcha_response_field"]::-webkit-input-placeholder{

    color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);

    font-size: 0;

    }

    input[name="recaptcha_response_field"]::-moz-placeholder{

    color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);

    font-size: 0;

    }

    input[name="recaptcha_response_field"]:-ms-input-placeholder{

    color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);

    font-size: 0;

    }

    Here's a guide for that: http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes-to-your-Form

    Hope this helps!

    @arthurnorman

    It seems like you are trying to do this similarly on your forms.

    You are asking a follow-up question so I have moved your issue over here to a new thread where we will help you separately. :)
