Adding text underneath form fields
July 23, 2007

First, thanks for the fantastic plugin.

My question, and a fairly simple one so please forgive me if it is addressed elsewhere:

What is the easiest way to add my own new text label underneath a given input field, similar to the "email required" label that appears underneath an email address input? 

For example, if I wanted to add a text label that reads "optional" underneath the Web site field in the default form, what's the easiest way to go about that?

Depending on the CSS theme selected and the length of the 'required' labels, this field may be shown on the right side of the input field or below.

For some theme, the idea was to just use an asterics * for the required labels and have an explanation at the bottom of the form, e.g.: *) required

If you like to add any sort of text in between  your fields, you can choose to use a text-only field, check the HELP page and look for Text only elements.
