How can I place multiple page content fields so I can edit them from Web Interface...? I tried copy pasting snippet from gallery but content in both fields are same (from second field)

For testing purposes, I have created two columns (in a table row) in Page Layout. Now I want to put different text in both fields. Both texts should be editable through the browser. I'd place page content field twice but as I said the content is same. Please help me I m new in SharePoint.


After Editing


This is pretty simple, use below steps.

  1. Add site column "MyColumn". You can do this step through SPD2013 or portal.
  2. Add this column to Pages library. Use Portal to do this.
  3. Add the internal name of this column "MyColumn" to field reference of copied snippet.

For #3 There will be FieldName attribute in copied snippet (Just find FieldName="{guid value}"). You only need to change it to FieldName="MyColumn"

The easiest way is to change the Field Namevalue under the Misc heading in the Customization - Page Field section in the snippets gallery. Hit Update and copy the new snippet.
