Changing text in form - "required" label

Recommended Posts

Hi, everybody!

I am searching for some help with my current issue. I am trying to change the "required" text (label) in forms to either Czech or at least an asterisk. Besides that, I would also need to change the validation message (the one that appears when a required field has not been filled in). Pictures attached.

I understood, that the text appears automatically based on the preselected language of the site. My language - Czech - is unfortunately not an option to be selected. So I need to solve this via custom code. 

I tried several options (Java Code Injection and CSS), but none of them had any effect at all. 

One of the snippets I tried:

/* Hide the default "(required)" text */
.sqs-block-form .form-field .required {
    display: none;
}

/* Add custom text or an asterisk to the label of required fields */
.sqs-block-form .form-field .field-label::after {
    content: ' * požadováno'; /* Customize this text to your desired language */
    color: red; /* Customize the color if needed */
    font-size: 1em; /* Customize the size if needed */
    margin-left: 5px; /* Adjust spacing if needed */
}
 

Any ideas about what the solution could be? Thank you soo much in advance!

Please see my earlier answer about this here: WHY does my form now say "required" and not the asterisk?

Thank you so much! It definitely helped to solve the "asterisk" problem. I was working on this for the whole day! I am soo thankful! 

There is still the problem with the validation messages, though. I'll try to keep searching for solutions 😊
