I'd like to display field descriptions in user profile2 page. Not below the form items but right after field labels. I tried to use hook_form_alter() in template.php of the theme but I could'nt figure out how to do that.


The module called Better field descriptions might be the one you are looking for. It describes as following:

Better field descriptions makes it possible to add themeable descriptions to fields in forms.

  • Would your customers like to write their own descriptions, but can't or won't, since they then need permission to manage the fields in the content type?
  • Would you like to show the description above the field or even between the title and the field?

The module Label help might also be helpful.

  • Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, Better field descriptions works on node entity only and I have here user profile. However I found Label Help module which produce the desired functionality. – StG Mar 28 '18 at 11:46
