In this post we would be discussing on how we can disallow users to select the Published (Date-Time) field while creating a blog post in SharePoint. Like below:
Our aim is to set the Published automatically as per the current system's date-time.If you are thinking to follow the usual way of hiding fields from the list form then you are not thinking about the impact it would have. I am talking about the below steps:
Go to the Advanced Settings of this list, set Allow Management of Content Types equal to Yes. Click on the Post content type, click on the Published column, and select Hidden.
