Hello! First forum post here, so I apologize if I break form or anything here!
I'm currently managing a medium sized Drupal (7.39) site with a few hundred users and lots of moving content (news story type content mostly) and recently we decided to pilot enabling comments on a few posts. This turned out to be a total mistake and we ended up with tens of thousands of spam comments (mostly our fault for not having a great spam module setup!). We promptly disabled the comment module, deleted the spam and thought we were done with it (and dropped the idea of having comments open).
Currently I am using DATE module in webform. It has 3 different fields YEAR, MONTH, DAY plus calendar. I simply like to have a text field with the current date as default value and the calendar with current and future dates. I don't want to have separate 3 drop down fields YEAR, MONTH, DAY. Can I update the DATE module or is there another module I should use?
