Hello. I am attempting to set the placeholder text via the shortcode attributes, but it is being ignored. Please take a look at the efforts below and let me know if anything is wrong.

Since I need to store and display “affiliation” in addition to name, I am trying to use the placeholder text to convey that the full name should go in the first name field, and the affiliation should go in the last name field.

The shortcode settings were ignored – the page displayed with the default values of placeholder texts.
