Default Chapter 11 - Unable to find Watermark plugin at address on p.397

Hi Imar,

I'm reviewing the Jquery chapter and was trying to find the watermark plugin at the address mentioned on p.397, http://plugins.jquery.com/project/updnWatermark).

I'm unable to see this plugin here...I'm just redirected to jquery.com.

I'm able to get the plugin from the resources that comes with the book, but I was wondering why I'm unable to see it at the site? Does this mean it's no longer supported?

Thank you.
Tulsi

Hi Tulsi,

Yeah, it looks like that. jQuery rebuilt their plugins web site some time ago, and then may have cleaned up some older plugins.

HTML5 now has built-in support for watermarks using the placeholder attribute, minimizing the need for plugins like this one. In my recent 4.5.1 update of this book, I dropped the plugin and just used this placeholder. If you want to support browsers that don't support the placeholder, you can take a look at this alternative plugin: http://plugins.jquery.com/watermark/ Note: I don't have experience with this specific plugin.

Cheers,

Imar
