I have a list on a Team Site-based (customised site definition) site collection. I want display its contents on the front page of the site in a web part with the list title and one field only in the detail display (in a boxed view) but remove the column header. There doesn't seem to be an option to do this in the edit web part dialogue. Is there some way to get rid of the column headers other than making a custom list?
If this is a custom site definition do you have access to the schema.xml file for the list? It is easy to create a different view that does exactly what you want and then you can use the view on your page.
