After updating to orchard vs. 1.7 I keep getting a validation error on the date time field every time i try to submit the form. I would like to know two things 1) what changed.... and 2 is there a way for me to override the validation? I checked and made sure the field is not required in my content part etc.. and yet it still is validating. Please help.
