Text Tags

  • minlength:integer – sets the minimum number of characters of user input allowed
  • maxlength:integer – sets the maximum character length of user input allowed
  • size:integer – sets the size of the input field created
  • aksimet:author – see Using Akismet for more information
  • placeholder – adds Placeholder Text to the tag

  • default:user_first_name – see Set Default Values
  • default:user_last_name – see Set Default Values

The Text Tag can optionally have a value set. If set, the value will be used as the default value for the field.
