bootstrap form cannot delete placeholder

Recommended Posts

I created a login system with bootstrap but for some reason I cannot delete the "placeholder" (in which it is written "admin") in both the inputs of the form ("uname" and "psw").

Even if I change the placeholder it's remain "admin". Have you any idea?

This is the code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Login</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.4.0/css/bootstrap.min.css">
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.3.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.4.0/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/styles.css">
</head>
<body>
    <div class="container">
        <div class="jumbotron text-center" id="jumbo_log">
            <h1>Login Page</h1>
            <p>You must login to enter</p>
            <form id="theform" method="get">
                <div class="container2">
                    <label for="uname"><b>Username</b></label>
                    <input type="text" id= "uname" name="uname" required><br>
                    <label for="psw"><b>Password</b></label>
                    <input type="password" id="psw" name="psw" required><br><br>
                    <input type="submit" id="submit" class="btn btn-info" value="Login"><br><br>
                 <a class="btn btn-primary" href="registration.php" role="button">Click here if you are not registered</a>
             </div>
          </form>
      </div>
</body>
</html>

This looks like your browser is set to remember form fields. You don't have a placeholder attribute set on the username field, and password fields don't support placeholder attributes (I think - I'm pretty sure that's true...) so the presence of text in that field is a sign that the culprit isn't what you think it. Delete the form data via your preferences.
