I'm working on a development site that will not be launching for a few months. I'm looking to create a rule that will not allow a user to publish an event if the event's start date is prior to launch. I am using the date field in this content type.

How could I accomplish this with rules? Thanks!

I'm not sure that Rules is required to do that.

I would rather use Field Validation module. It is able to configure complex validation rules for any field.

In its submodule called "Field validation extras" there's a validation rule that will help you, it's called "Date range2". You can set a specific minimum date according to your needs, and a far enough maximum date.

  • Thanks ermannob! I was actually able to configure a rule to do this, but you're solution seems a lot more simple. Commented Feb 11, 2013 at 18:36
