Hi,

I am a drupal newbie. In my site I have a content type to manage sites specific data. I have a datefield data in that content type. Is there a way to set its default value as an absolute value (say 20th december 2011). The "Customize Default Value" allows only relative values. Thanks in advance.

As the date field is not part of core, this isn't the best place for your inquiry.

In general, you'd want to start at the project page:

https://drupal.org/project/date

Perhaps search the issue queue to see if your issue has already been brought up:

https://drupal.org/project/issues/date?text=absolute+default+value&statu...

And if it hasn't, then submit your own issue (in this case, a feature request):

https://drupal.org/node/add/project-issue/date

Good luck…
