I'm trying to create a view of stuff from my reusable content list. Basically I am storing global links within the reusable content list.

I'm struggling with the content query webpart, because it always shows me the LINK to the item in the reusable content list - what I want it to show is the ReusableHTML Column of the specific item in the list.

I tried doing so with

<property name="DataColumnRenames" type="string">ReusableHtml,Reuse</property> <property name="CommonViewFields" type="string">ReusableHtml,Text</property>

But somehow the CQWP doesn't display anything when using these two properties.

My reusable content list basically looks like so:

Title     ReusableHTML
Static 1  <a href="#">Link 1</a>
Static 2  <a href="#">Link 2</a>

And basically I want to display these global links via the masterpage of my site - easily editable for the end user in the reusable content list.

Anyone up for a .webpart file or could show me another tutorial, because the MS tutorial here did not help me.
