A quick question on forms

I want to change parts of this form in order to use default values (with
a
disabled input). The problem is if I change it from text_field to
text_field_tag that part of the form stops functioning. It seems like a
silly question, but its been driving me crazy. Any help would help.

<%= error_messages_for ‘post’ %>

Title
<%= text_field 'post', 'title' %>

Author's Name
<%= text_field 'post', 'author_name' %>

Permalink
<%= text_field 'post', 'permalink' %>

Influence level
<%= text_field 'post', 'influence_level' %>

Disclosure
<%= text_area 'post', 'disclosure' %>

well to give this a set value and make it read only, change it to:
<%= text_field ‘post’, ‘title’, :value => “This is the title that
appears”, :readonly => true %>

or you could make it a hidden field:
<%= hidden_field ‘post’, ‘title’, :value => “You won’t see this but it
will get passed to the destination as params[:post].title” %>

Hope that works!

Thanks so much, that worked!
