I have inserted a CQWP on a site and set it to print a description, but it prints out HTML code.

disable-output-escaping is set to yes. That doesn't help.

Also when I try to edit it to make it print a date it says that the webpart cannot be shown.

have you tried to disable output escaping?

disable-output-escaping = "No"

how are you doing the date?

  • Yes.. That didn't work either. I am trying with this: <xsl:variable name="Created"> <xsl:value-of select="ddwrt:FormatDateTime(string(@Created) ,1033 ,'dd.MM.yyyy')" /></xsl:variable> from uccorner.com/231/sharepoint/… Commented Jan 18, 2013 at 9:34
  • I had to put disable-output-escaping = "yes" in the description section! Commented Jan 18, 2013 at 15:10
