Dear Jason, the data type in the date column is date. rthe default date is set to 1901-01-01.
When a user chooses not to enter their birthdate, I would like it to default to to the default date 1901-01-01. Currently if they enter nothing in the date field (Date of birth) (not a required field - they might be to modest/shy) - it produces a 01-01-1970 in the browser page - it's as if an entry is made into mysql and the default date overrided. How do I avoid this?
