We want the date field to default to today's date when creating a new article. In the node edit form it defaults to the date set in the content type field settings. In the field settings form, it says "leave blank to use the time of form submission". If we leave it blank, it saves the form submission time which is then the new default for the node edit form.
How do we make the date field in the node edit form always show today's date for new content?
