I need to set up a complicated display template that's essentially attached to a single field; this field appears on 40+ sites in the same site collection, and I want it to do the same thing on all sites (it's basically a geo-locator field).
I can see two possible ways of doing this (or maybe more if I think harder):
- Associate the display template with a Site Column
- Associate the display template with a Content Type that contains the site column.
In each case, the relevant list will use the Site Column. So far, just the one column is involved. But let's say for a moment that the requirement grows to three columns, or even more. Then what?
At the moment, I can't even find a way to associate a display template with a Content Type. Is there something I'm missing?
I'm looking for a design principle or two ...
Thanks in advance
