Display a custom content type's field in 'Manage fields' page

Recently I had a requirement to create a custom content type. I was no new to this as I had previous such encounters. Post creation of this content type I noticed that the fields were misplaced while creating a node from the same. At first glance it looked a cakewalk shot as we are aware about the default configuration.
 
Considering the same, I traced to Structure->Content Type->Manage Fields(for my custom content type) to change the order of the fields. Strange to witness, my fields was not present in content type's Manage field page!

Add Placeholders

Add Placeholders to Captcha input field

HTML 5 has been encompassed with many novel attributes, one of which is the Placeholders. The Placeholder attribute displays text in the input field till it is focused and then hides the text on click. These Placeholders plays an momentous role in offering a visual information about the field. A general place where I prefer to add Placeholders is template.php in your theme.
