I'm using D7.
If you set a field
<Hidden> on 'Manage display', and, unless you display it by views or something, you cannot see it anywhere on the site, right?
The format column contains the options to show the field value in different formats. Hidden is the global value which is present in all the format option list, if you choose hidden then it will hide the whole field from showing on the content page.
I understand it hides a field from View mode. But, you can also hide it if you don't try to do by using those modules, which are designed to output fields, like Views, right? Or, is there still any possibility that users can see the hidden field even if those modules are not used?
I'm sorry if this is a very basic question. But, I wanted to make sure what 'hidden' field means.
