when a user starts a new (node) group I don't want to show them the group type option and just default to "group type" . Can this field be hidden? Maybe using a "widget type" hidden?

thanks

On second thoughts, it would make sense to be able to do this without resorting to _form_alter()s. Shouldn't be too hard to create a hidden widget. I'll have a look at this as soon as I get time.

What do the og maintainers think of using the extra widgets module for this functionality? (I'm not suggesting a dependency, just a module_exists() call).

If it works for you, go ahead and use it. OG doesn't need to check for it, as it's a widget used bu te field system.

Hrm. I think that SHOULD be the solution, yeah, however #1312788: Fatal error: Unsupported operand types in field_extrawidgets.module on line 119 means this is currently broken. There is a patch that fixes that, but the default value can't be set with a hidden widget. Will look more into it.
