I am trying to customize the Blog post comments in SharePoint 2013 by adding a new custom column using RichText (called RTBody) and hiding the old one called Body in several pages, such as Post.aspx and in views like Allcomments.aspx.

There is no problem for the views of the "Comments" Webpart but I cannot integrate the new column in the main page and post.aspx.

Moreover the textbox for adding new comments disappear when I load a new customized customblog.xsl file as described in the following procedure: Customizing the blog posts in a SharePoint blog template enter image description here

The problem is to show ViewFields section of the Comments Webpart to Post.aspx page. I can also modify C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\BlogSiteTemplate\Comments\schema.xml but I am not sure if it helps.

Do you have an idea of the procedure?

Thank you for your help

  • I found a way to display the Rich Text comments, the column need to be created in the list (List Settings / Columns / Create column) and not in site settings / site columns / create. The newly created column belongs to the list, not to the comment content type.
