    Can you please describe what it is exactly you are looking to have, or expecting to happen?

    I see that there is a form for collecting email addresses embedded on the page you have linked to above:

    http://markuswtracy.com/markuswtracy.com/HOME.html

    While we do see a form on the above page, I'm afraid it is not clear what you meant by "putting text in the submission box". Are you saying you'd like to submit your form with some email addresses?

    Or are you asking for something else?

    Please let us know what it is you are trying to achieve, in a little more detail, and once we know what it is we'll be very happy to help. Thank you

    Boris,
    If you go to: http://www.kenttwitchell.org you will see at bottom of his page (right side) a similar box asking people who view his web site to "sigh up". If you look closely, in the sign up box, you can read the words: email address. That's what I want to do within my box. I hope that helps.
    Thank you, Markus Tracy

    Hello Markus,

    I see now what you mean. You would like to put a place holder in the field while the field is empty.

    To do that,  you will need to edit your form from the form builder, and then select the field. Next, click Hint on the upper tool bar, and enter the value that you want to appear as your place holder

    Once you're done, just save your form and you're good to go.

    If you have questions, please let us know.

    Thanks.

    Hello Liyam,
    Thank you for your help! Yes, a placeholder is what I meant. I just didn't know what that was called. Question though....... I noticed after I created my placeholder, there was no choice of font style? Is that true?
    Thank you, -Markus

    Yes, the placeholder will have a default font style already set. However, you can change this by injecting custom CSS code to your form. To change the font style, simply inject the custom css below.

    input::-webkit-input-placeholder, textarea::-webkit-input-placeholder {

    font-family: 'Times New Roman';

    }

    input:-moz-placeholder, textarea:-moz-placeholder {

    font-family: 'Times New Roman';

    }

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
    Regards.

    Christian,
    It works!!!! But,
    my Subscription box is now further away from the email box. Can you create a CSS code that can align both boxes closer to each other? I want to keep my Times New Roman font please!
    Thank you, -Markus
