Plain Text Fields

Plain Text fields give you either a normal text input or a multi-line textarea, where plain text can be entered.

# Settings

Plain Text fields have the following settings:

  • Placeholder Text – The field’s placeholder text, to be displayed if the field has no value yet.
  • Max Length – The maximum number of characters the field can contain.
  • Allow line breaks – Whether or not to allow line breaks in this field.

# The Field

Plain Text fields will either show a normal text input or a multi-line textarea, depending on whether Allow line breaks was checked.

# Development

Calling a Plain Text field in your templates will return the value that was entered in the field.
