I am trying to create a blog feed on our SharePoint 2013 intranet homepage to show the three most recent company blog posts. I have tried with both the Content Query Web Part and the Content Search Web Part but I have gotten stuck on both of these as follows:
CQWP- I changed the Source of the query to "Show items from the following list:" and browsed to this list /Blog/Lists/Posts. For List Type I left it as Posts and basically left the default settings for everything else. Under Presentation>Fields to display I put Body in the Description field and then clicked Ok. The problem with this is that it displays the body of the post as plain text instead of the rendered html. It looks like this:
CSWP- I created a query that shows new blog posts and sorts by creation date in descending order. Under Display Templates>Item I selected Two lines. Then under Property Mappings I selected Change the mapping of managed properties and for Line 2 I selected BodyOWSMTXT and got a very similar result to the CQWP:
Can someone please help me figure out how to display the html instead of the plain text either by changing the managed property of the blog body, changing the display template or some other method? I have been stuck trying to figure this out all week.
Thanks so much!
