Placement of custom content type items

Jan 26, 2011 at 5:56 AM

I've created a custom type and am trying to create a file to place at the root of the theme, but I'm not sure how to refer to the custom fields.  The tutorial link ( conveniently (!) only shows placement of fields associated with the parts.

In my content type I have several text fields.  How do I refer to them?  I can refer to my hyperlink field by type since there's only one, but I want finer control over my text fields.

Look at

You can add a double underscore and the name of the field after the usual text field qualifier.

Exactly it!  I used Fields_Common_Text_Published to get to my custom field "Published" in my content type.

I guess I must be missing something regarding referencing a custom field for a custom type in

It looks like you are saying that for me to hide the EventDate for an Event in in a listing that the syntax is


<Match ContentType="Event">

<Match DisplayType="Summary">

<Place Fields_Common_DateTimeField_EventDate="Nowhere"/>





This does not work. Is this still broken?
