Adding a column to the results for a content query web part RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using a content query web part to pull blog posts from a subsite and display them on my main site home page. I've got the title and date/time displaying, but I created a new column in the blog called "Summary" that I would also like to display under the title on the home page. The content query web part doesn't seem to recognize that Summary column; every time I try to list it in the web part display fields, I get a message saying that the web part doesn't recognize the field. Is there some setting or indexing on that column that I need to turn on for the web part to pick it up?

    Also, can I restrict the date/time display to day only? And reformat to "Monday, September 3, 2018."

    While I'm at it, People of MicrosoftLand: I wish the content query web part results were easier to format. I wish I could say "Give me two columns, and put the date in the first column, and the title (in a bigger font) above the summary in the second column." And if wishes were horses ....

  • Hi Steve, 

    Make sure the summary column has managed property and the managed property of the summary column is Refinable:
