I have a new Fastlink Content type, which consists of all the parts that List Content Type has. I added several Page elements to the new Fastlink and added it to footer as a widget.

Now I see a list of pages with a title, date, annotation and "more" link. How can I hide the date, annotation and "more" link only for the Fastlink Content type?

I tried to set it in the file

 <Match ContentType="Fastlink">
    <Match DisplayType="Summary">
      <Place Parts_Common_Body_Summary="Nowhere"
                 Parts_Common_Metadata_Summary="Nowhere" />

but it doesn't work like this with ContentType="Fastlink", it works only when I change it to Page -  <Match ContentType="Page">

What should I do, if I have another lists where annotation needs to be shown?

Well, if it's Page items that you add to your custom list, those items are of course of type Page. You should either also use a custom type for what you put into that list, or if you can't, use a custom display type.
