Okay so, I currently am using a theme called Melos. It has 3 default placeholders. But I don't know how to make a post as placeholder or put a current post in that placeholder. I checked the code too but couldn't find it. Tho, it should have nothing about the code I assume. What I mean is, I can post as a normal entry but I don't know how to set a post to a placeholder. There is no option in any page. Someone please help.

    Have you contacted Melos theme support? I am unfamiliar with the concept of a placeholder post that isn't just a normal post called placeholder, can you be more specific? – Tom J Nowell Oct 26 '16 at 1:41

Use this code in your functions.php

function wpb_change_title_text( $title ){
    $screen = get_current_screen();
    if  ( 'post' == $screen->post_type ) {
      $title = 'Post Title';
return $title;
add_filter( 'enter_title_here', 'wpb_change_title_text' );

The above code will Place "Post Title" as placeholder text in dashboard -> posts -> Add New. Replace that text with your text and also Replace post with your Post-type.
