MPForm Documentation: Help for users

Level of difficulty: A

Help texts which shall guide the user when filling in the form can be added to each of the fields. In order to make them appear in the frontend you must put the place holder {HELP} in the backend somewhere in the code field for the Field Loop. Next to the fields for which some help text has been defined a button with a question mark will be displayed. If the user has enabled JavaScript and presses the button, the help text will become visible.

In addition there is the possibility to display the help text instantly, without the need for clicking on the question mark. For doing so, put the place holder {HELPTXT} somewhere in the backend into the code field Field Loop and enter some help text for some fields, then all those fields will display the help text instantly.
