Is it possible to change default text on address labels

    Is there any way to change the default label text below the text entry field when using the address Quick Tool option directly within Jotform. I edited the source html, thinking this would update the labels but it didn't:

     <td><span class="form-sub-label-container"><input class="form-textbox validate[required] form-address-state" type="text" name="q29_organisationAddress[state]" id="input_29_state" size="22" />
                      <label class="form-sub-label" for="input_29_state" id="sublabel_state"> County </label></span>
                  <td width="50%"><span class="form-sub-label-container"><input class="form-textbox validate[required] form-address-postal" type="text" name="q29_organisationAddress[postal]" id="input_29_postal" size="10" />
                      <label class="form-sub-label" for="input_29_postal" id="sublabel_postal"> Postcode </label></span>

    I have a form that is UK focussed only and therefore would prefer the address label to say 'County' rather than 'State/Province' and 'Postcode' rather than 'Postal / Zip Code'.

    Many thanks

    I tried this. The html text disappears when I click on 'Complete' and I am left with a blank box.

    I don't want a full address, just City and Country.  Would appreciate any advice to make this happen.

    Do you want to just change the labels of the address sub-fields, remove all the other sub-fields and leave only city and country, or do you want to do both?

    In any case, your issue looks like it needs a new separated thread. Kindly open one so we can better assist you.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi, is this method still working? I tried on my form and it does not seem to make a difference. Thanks!
