I have a content type that has a number of fields that are for internal admin use only.. Mostly dates and a "computed_field"..
When a node is created these values need to have default values set..
If the content is created by staff users (with full permissions to the field) the defaults work perfectly.. If the content is created by a customer the values are empty which breaks other functionality..
I believe it should always accept defaults is specified regardless of field permissions because if the intention was for fields to be black the site builder wouldn't have specified a default value..
Is there a work around for this situation?
