Re: Re: [Jason] Can removeDate be optional?
I've got an existing section that has a lot of records in it. A new requirement on the site is to have some items publish and remove at a certain time.
publishDate as "blank" and everything is published after 0000-00-00 00:00:00
removeDate as "blank" means everything is not published as everything is after 0000-00-00 00:00:00
There are a number of work arounds, but wouldn't it be better to change the CMSB base code to say if "blank" then ignore, or make blank removeDate 9999-99-99 99:99:99 to get the reverse action as the publishDate?
I agree that having a blank remove date be "ignored" is the more intuitive (and potentially useful) behaviour, however, this sort of change needs to be carefully considered as it may not be backwards-compatible. I'll flag this topic for internal discussion.
