sure via CSS and e.g. with a background image, that would be the most elegant way.

or include the star in the form label…there are many ways to do this.

under the form builder you have a "text for required fields" or something. Change that.

If you need it to be in front of the labels insert it manually in the field name. It won't be saved in the DB and won't be part of the field ID, in case you're trying to access it with CSS.

I spent a long time myself trying to figure this one outfrom a backend code perspective, but it's much easier than that. Within each of the forms on form builder there is an area for you to change this manually.


Messages, Text and Button Label>"required" label


then go into your CSS and add "color:#F00;" to "span.reqtxt,

span.emailreqtxt "
