Form blocks: Change standard text?

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

is it possible to edit/change the default text of the consent checkbox?

The whole picture: I want to set up a form on a page for a customer in which users register for an event. The form is simple and only requires your name, company and email address. I would like to record the data as a mailing list and create an automation that immediately sends a confirmation of registration to the user after sending the form.

For this to work, the user must give their consent and click the checkbox.

I would like to change this text ("Sign up for news and updates*), which is included by default.
How could that work?

Hi @Janho, when you click on Edit (pencil icon) on the form, do you get this pop up? If not, please share a link to your website.

I cannot change text.

Ah gotcha! The German threw me off 😁 I've tested this should work. Try add the below to Website Tools -> Custom CSS (Not Linked), and let me know how it goes

.form-item.field.email {
  .option font {
    display: none!important;
  }
  .option span:after {
    content: "Change to what you want";
  }
}

it works - half.
The standard text remains and the new text from the script comes afterwards.

Hi, I updated my original answer with !important. Try the new code, should work.

If it does, please give it a thumbsup and mark as solution. thank you 🙂

Is it possible to edit/change the default text of the consent checkbox? I would like to change this text ("Sign up for news and updates*), which is included by default.

This Email Signup option is new (July 2023) and, as you mentioned, the caption for this checkbox is currently fixed. I made a feature request for this to be editable (Circle members can vote it up here), but right now you'll need some code (JavaScript or CSS) to change it. 

Try this CSS:

#collection-655db204d1c0f4729bc67032 .form-item.field.email.required .option label span {
    margin-top: 4px;
    font-size: 0;
    visibility: hidden;
}
#collection-655db204d1c0f4729bc67032 .form-item.field.email.required .option label span:before {
    content: "Anklicken um Anmeldebestätigung erhalten.";
    font-size: 14px;
    visibility:visible;
}

It is a bit "hacky" but should work. I've included the Collection ID for that page so that it doesn't affect other forms on the site, so this will need to be removed or updated if you want to use it on other forms/pages:

no, i'd done that ...

The "before" and "after" commands don't change the text defined in the code, right? we want to replace the standard text.

No, display none hides it. After writes the new content.

Ah, looks like the html has changed between me testing that code and you checking it! (the font element no longer exists). An untimely SquareSpace update. Try this

.form-item.field.email {
  .option span {
    display: none!important;
  }
  .option:after {
    content: "Change to what you want";
  }
}

Like @paul2009 said, if you want just to target this particular form, try this

#collection-655db204d1c0f4729bc67032 .form-item.field.email {
  .option span {
    display: none!important;
  }
  .option:after {
    content: "Change to what you want";
  }
}

 

But try both code from paul and myself, see which looks better on screen. (they might look the same!)

Hej! 

you are great!!! @melody495 + @paul2009 !!

I combined both suggestions and this works:

#collection-655db204d1c0f4729bc67032 .form-item.field.email.required .option label span {
    margin-top: 4px;
    font-size: 0;
    visibility: hidden;
}
#collection-655db204d1c0f4729bc67032 .form-item.field.email.required .option label span:before {
    font-size: 14px;
    visibility:visible;
  content: "Anklicken um Anmeldebestätigung erhalten.";
}

 

i added to @paul2009's code the line from @melody495 "content: "xxxx" and voila! 

 

THANK YOU GUYS!!

love,

jan
