    Edit the 'new idea' text prompt


      We would like to be able to edit the prompt "Add some persuasive details" but I cannot find where this would be done in the admin panel.  I have also searched the Jive Community for answers, with no luck.  Anyone know where this is updated?  Thanks.

          I've never seen this behavior before either here or with my last employer where creating an idea leaves it blank. Have a look at the Jive 8 custom fields documentation to see if there is something there to change (which, by the way, is the exact same as the Jive 9/X/Cloud documentation).


          Another idea I am thinking about, coming at this from a different angle, is to use Google development tools to see the HTML/classes as I am wondering if it is built in to the theme in your case. When I just took a look myself, I see the text I enter is in:


          <body id="tinymce" class="jive-widget-formattedtext mceContentBody tiny_mce_content" onload="window.parent.tinyMCE.get('wysiwygtext').onLoad.dispatch();" contenteditable="true" dir="ltr"><p>XXX<br></p></body>


          The "XXX" was the text I entered.


          2 other clues I see that makes me think you might have a customized theme are: your title is centered (it's usually left justified) and the margins/padding for where the text appears seems to be bigger than usual:




          Looking at where "Idea title" is coming from, I found this:


          <label for="subject" class="j-508-label">Idea title</label>


          And this might actually be the best clue as to where to go to get a change made, which I further suspect is the theme.

            I think Rob is on to something about you having a custom theme.  I've never seen "Add some persuasive details" be there by default.  If you are hosted (not available on Cloud ), you can probably change this with a phrase substitution, but I don't know the exact arguments to tell you.  Maybe one of these will help you:

              Thank you, Rob & Matt.


              I'll keep looking.  We are cloud, JiveX.

                Contrary to Rob and Matt, I have the same behavior as you on my cloud Jive-x community (using Content Evolution) :

                I have a custom theme (one live and another that is about to launch) and both have this "Add some persuasive details" text. I don't have any ideas on how to fix it, but I wanted to at least confirm that it is not specific to your site.
