Most people who are starting to learn Drupal get confused between the two options 'Excluding fields' and "Changing the display method to hidden" in the Drupal CCK Fields options page. If you have the same doubt regarding these two fields in your Drupal site then read onto find out their exact meanings.

So here is a description of their functions.

  • The Exclude (checkbox) completely hides the whole variable and the display.
  • The Hidden option (in the dropdown) simply hides the display but keeps the variable available in the node (It is merely a formatter as the others in the drop down)

Hope that helps.
