I'm using Drupal 7
I'm creating a node through a node add form. The settings are such that it should by default be published. I'm trying to hide some of the options from the user, but when I
for some reason the node does is no longer published by default. I've tried tracing out the value of that portion of the form
drupal_set_message('Options'.'<pre>'. print_r($form['options'], TRUE) .'</pre>');
and I get the same values when the field is visible as when it is hidden. Seems like perhaps something is fishy?
