Enter Title Here Changer


Using this plugin helps you to change the default placeholder in the title field when creating a new post. This is helpful, especially when using a Custom Post Type. For example, for a movie Custom Post Type, instead of default Add title placeholder, it can be changed to Enter Movie Title or to anything that make more sense.

Why you need to replace the title placeholder text?

By replacing the placeholder text when creating a new post, help to instruct users to what the title should be.

This plugin is inspired by an article at WPBeginner.
