1. I have created a blog using sharepoint 2010
  2. I added a few new column using sharepoint designer
  3. List-post-add new column.
  4. Of couse each post I edit and added the content to the extra field.

However I can't view the output or any content from the newly added column on my main homepage.. Which is summary view I guess.

Can anyone guide me on how I can add these to my summary view? And I can't seem to see anywhere I can edit the summary view even when I am using sharepoint designer...

Edit in response to @sbc111's answer: The problem is there is no such thing as modify for Summary View. so what i did yesterday is hard code the script like that..

<xsl:for-each select="$Fields">            
            <xsl:if test="@Name ='Permalink' or @Name ='Banner'">
                    <xsl:when test="$thisNode/@*[name()=current()/@Name]!=''">
                        <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="PrintFieldWithDisplayFormLink">
                            <xsl:with-param name="thisNode" select="$thisNode"/>

"Banner" is the column I created. Can anyone guide me what that means?

  • I think you need to customize column that included in default view of the list, look for button on the ribbon

You need to modify views (or create new ones) to include your new column(s) - it is straightforward and this post shows how it can be done: Create, modify, or delete a view.
