Thanks for you reply.
I have added an extra meta field to my NewsItemNew.ascx control and can capture the value I enter which is then displayed in the details section along with "Author", "Summary" etc.
However I cannot seem to access this value from with my LisPageMaster.ascx control.
I named my control "Playlist" in the web.config:
|<add key="News.Playlist" valueType="Integer" visible="True" searchable="True" sortable="True" defaultValue=""></add>
and referenced it within the news list page along with the other meta fields:
|<asp:literal id="Playlist" runat="server"></asp:literal>
|<asp:Literal ID="Author" runat="server"></asp:Literal>
|<asp:Literal ID="Source" runat="server"></asp:Literal>
|<asp:HyperLink ID="Category" runat="server" />
The "Playlist" value is not displayed on the page. What am I missing? Is there a way to access this "Playlist" meta field from with the code behind file without adding it to a display control within the html? I need to append the value to the url of the news story as a query string.
Many thanks for your help.
