add repeating field - edit form.png
add repeating field - create form.png

I need to change the add and delete button texts on one of my sites. I've added the hooks to do this and it seems to work fine on the edit forms, but not on create forms.
I've included a couple of screenshots one edit form, where you can see the correct texts displaying. On the create form I have hit the add button once and you can see that the delete button text is being set for the second repeat.

Looks as though the hooks are not being run on create forms.

add_filter('toolset_button_delete_repetition_text', 'toolset_button_delete_repetition_text', 10, 2);
function toolset_button_delete_repetition_text($text, $config)
    return 'Löschen';
add_filter('toolset_button_add_repetition_text', 'toolset_button_add_repetition_text', 10, 2);
function toolset_button_add_repetition_text($text, $config)
    return '+ Neues hinzufügen';

Dear Simon,

I assume we are talking about the button text of CRED form, but I can not duplicate same problem in a fresh wordpress installation with the latest version CRED + Types, see screenshot 1121.JPG.

I suggest you check these in your website:
1) You are using the latest version of Toolset plugins
2) deactivate other plugins and switch to wordpress default theme, and test again


Hey Luo,
My apologies - I was running some JS on the page to clear fields and it was removing the button texts.
