How can i add labels in create topic form fields?

I want to add labels in create topic form fields is there any plugin available or any custom solution?

Do you mean a template so when a user creates a new topic, there are pre-filled options just like we have on #marketplace?

Can you share a mockup or screenshot of where you want these fields?

Not exactly sure what you mean, but if you want to change the placeholder text, you can do that in the admin Customization tab, under Text. Type the current placeholder of the field and you should be able to change it.


Do you mean this?: Topic Template Placeholder Text theme component

So you just want to add labels for each of the fields?

Only fields labels and some styling.

There are numerous approaches here, but consider, in order of preference:

  • CSS
  • Use of plugin outlets
  • jQuery/equivalent native javascript edits of the DOM (not sure how easy this will be because this is not a component, so I don’t think it will be that easy to schedule manipulation as there are no event hooks).
  • altering the template discourse/composer.hbs at master · discourse/discourse · GitHub

The last option is risky, because this file will probably get a lot of updates over time (last update was 7 days ago!) and you don’t normally want to be overriding templates, especially those that frequently change, as you will mask stuff from core too much and break things.
