Hello, as far as my latest C8 test installation is concerned, the Text field's default value parameter does not work. After creating a new field the input shows a 0 (zero)? However, I can enter my own default value text. But in frontend the default value does not show-up. The field always stays empty. This happens on first submission, and all future edits.

Is it the same for article you create or for those you edit after field added?

I think I have tested every possibility. New records, and editing/re-saving records. Or did you mean something different?

I cannot confirm it. I can see this text in the field.

Thanks for checking. Maybe an issue on that specific J! installation... I am going to try another one.

Display and Save works now! I have tested another Joomla installation ;)


However, I still have that 0 (zero) in the backend?
It appears in new fields, or if I remove my default value and save it.

BTW, I would recommend to add a translatable placeholder parameter, too.
Nowadays I consider it as a standard for all text inputs.

Done.

Most probably it is still old record.
