date_select Year as a text_field

Hey all,

Using date_select in a form, how can I make the Year field a
text_field instead of a select? It looks like it will take more than a
simple modification of the date_select method.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

It is simple, but it's not straight forward.
You just need to discard the year from select and add the proper name to
the text field for year.
You can refer it here for better example with code

Hi,

Seems the color highlighting plugin is broken in Safari.
Please see it in FireFox.

Hi,

Yes, actually I had an exact requirement a while ago and when I saw you
asking for the same thing, I thought it would be better to blog it down
so it can be easily accessible for everyone.
