Change the "name" fields

Recommended Posts

Good morning; I'm brand new to Squarespace. Our operation is stealth, I'm just trying to throw-up a logo and a 'join the mailing list" form. All I want is to collect people's names and email. I'm using the website and form builder to add a "name" field, but it forces me to have a "first name" and "last name" field. We have an international audience, and this creates three problems:


1. Calling one's given name "first name" is highly regional;

2. Many folks don't strictly divide their names in this way;

3. It does not provide a field for honourific, so we appear rude to anyone not from California

Is there some way to make the name field simply a one box text field, and we can tell people to put their full name (including honourific) into that field?

@djw92 Hi! Try adding this code snippet under Website Tools > Code Injection > Header. This snippet will remove the last name field, leaving only one input field for the name and changing the input placeholder for the first name to 'Name'. You'll require a business plan to add this code.

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.7.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
 const lastNameField = document.querySelectorAll('.last-name')
 const lastName = document.querySelectorAll('.last-name input')
     lastName.forEach(lname => {
     lname.value = "-"
     lastNameField.forEach(lnameField => {
     lnameField.style.display = "none"
.newsletter-form-field-wrapper.last-name {
    display: none;

Let me know how it goes. Thanks!
