I have a mandatory field (published date) used for a content type. I want to display this info in the page layout. I have done this using SPD to edit the page. My code looks like this <i>Article Date: </i><SharePointWebControls:DateTimeField FieldName="ea266b0f-51ec-4fd3-bdcf-0c010a4caea7" runat="server" ></SharePointWebControls:DateTimeField>

BUT when you create a new page using the new layout it is wanting the publishing date entered twice. HOw can I just display what is entered in this field in the page layout with out the prompt for the same info again?

  • is the mandatory field was added in edit mode panel ? – Mohamed El-Qassas MVP Jul 25 '16 at 16:46
  • Yes it's there in effect twice I guess. Once for the end user to fill in (date and time) The second instance just needs to be the date(display only). As I couldn't do this (the original field needs to be date and time) I have trimmed display of the field. Would a better option to display a crawled managed property in the page? – Mike Blair Jul 26 '16 at 7:08
