I am using SharePoint 2013. I started using the Links List. Why does the Links List have two sections top post a link when I am only posting one link at a time? On the top there is a URL field and on the bottom there is a HyperLink field. It almost looks like ti will allow me to post two links when in fact, (if I am correct), only one link will be posted.

    That isn't a standard links list, it looks like you have added additional columns of metadata Oct 4, 2016 at 19:07
  • You're correct about that. I did add a Date and Time column. Oct 4, 2016 at 19:08
  • I did remove the Date and Time from the Link List column. However, the same duplicate link field is still there. Oct 4, 2016 at 19:13

I have simulated your steps

enter image description here

and I am pretty sure that you have added new column with HyperLink and Picture type that called HyperLink, and your requirement will be achieved if you delete HyperLink column instead of date time column as the following

  • Open your list > List Setting > Below columns > find HyperLink column name > click on it.

enter image description here

  • Click delete if you don't need it, it should not be now shown at your new field.

  • I checked. I did not have the HyperLink selected. Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions with the screenshots. Oct 6, 2016 at 14:11

    Open your list > List Setting > Below columns > check if you have additional columns or not , it's not related to date time column , as you mentioned at your comments above , it's as Eric mention, Oct 6, 2016 at 14:15
