I wanted to remove the default text inside the Username and Password textbox in my login form. (i.e. there's a "User Name" text inside the Username textbox.) I have looked at the back end of the system if there's a settings for it and also did looked at the mod_login.php but seem to can't find the options to remove the text. Need help. Thanks.

Already found it. Removed the placeholder variant in default.php inside ..modules/mod_login/tmpl
Thanks anyway

if its built using html you could just add this to the form tag: <input type="text" name="example" value="">
(The value part in particular)
