We have a custom field in a custom page type to denote the published date. A cqwp is used to retrieve a list of pages from a pages list and we need to display this published date.

Normally this would not be a problem, but this published date pulls through as $Resources:ContentTypeNews, which does not work in common view fields, assuming the fact that this is an embedded resource? I don't have the code for this, so I'm working purely on assumptions.

Thanks for the help.

What do you mean by 'pulls through'...? – Ernst Wolthaus Sep 15 '11 at 13:22
Assuming you want a publishing date to be displayed, why would this be embedded? Each column(field) can be displayed through the CQWP, even the default columns like Created, Author(Created By), etc. – Ernst Wolthaus Sep 15 '11 at 13:29

This article describes how to display custom properties in the CQWP?
