I would like to add a field called "Date Published" to a channel field group. Naturally I selected the "Date" field type but this is useless because:

  • It takes too long to navigate to past years.
  • It confuses the user by placing the time into the field.

Is there a way to improve upon this?

Note: It is important that it will be easy to perform a custom channel query that shows entries that are >= N years old.

I haven't used it, but maybe DropDate is what you need.

  • Awesome, that is much better!
