I know I've come across this before but can't seem to fathom this one again.

When leaving a datefield blank I am getting a default value of 01/01/1970. What can I do to overcome this? I've tried if statements but to no avail.

Where does this happen? If on your website, you could do a check, like:

<% if MyDate %> Date: $MyDate.Nice <% end_if %>
