Here's the delimma....I am missing columns when trying to filter my CQWP. Both columns that I want to tap happen to be custom lookups and in the site column gallery for the site collection. I need to filter on these two columns for display and will be utilizing this CQWP on various sites in this site collection.
I latched on to the customization of CQWP! Sweet - this would save me some headaches. I did some research and found good info (as usual) at Heather Solomon's site (http://www.heathersolomon.com/blog/arti ... Style.aspx
) which I followed within my limited abilities. I didn't use the site content type path, but went straight to the site column gallery since I was working with a custom list and had custom columns developed.
I added to the CQWP I was customizing and put on the page for testing and no joy! :-(
Here's a sample of my code: <property name="CommonViewFields" type="string">Platforms, Lookup</property>
What am I doing wrong? I don't need anything else - just to be able to ensure my custom columns appear when I want to filter on the columns. Oh - and some of the other custom columns in the site column gallery DO appear! Just not the ones I need for this particular CQWP.
