Hi there, im using siteifnity 4.0 and im creating a page with standard news control. I wish to create Template for List of posts which would be displaying such fields as author, date of creation and category. First two are easy to put into, its enough to paste  

<%# Eval("Author")%></a> on <sf:FieldListView ID="PostDate" runat="server" Format=" PublicationDate.ToLocal():MMM dd, yyyy" />



 something like that. I have no idea how to put category field in that or similar way, any suggestions?

Thanks.

Hello Maciej,

You should add the following control in the template

<sitefinity:HierarchicalTaxonField ID="HierarchicalFieldControl" runat="server" TaxonomyId="E5CD6D69-1543-427b-AD62-688A99F5E7D4" DisplayMode="Read" WebServiceUrl="~/Sitefinity/Services/Taxonomies/HierarchicalTaxon.svc" Expanded="false" TaxonomyMetafieldName="Category" ExpandText="ClickToAddCategories" BindOnServer="true" />

Mhm, thanks for fast answer, buti already knew this way.
I need to put all of this in one line. Look at that:

<div class="post-info" !important>
              <p class="post-meta" !important> Posted by <a href="#"> <%# Eval("Author")%></a> on <sf:FieldListView ID="PostDate" runat="server" Format=" PublicationDate.ToLocal():MMM dd, yyyy" /> <sitefinity:HierarchicalTaxonField ID="HierarchicalFieldControl" runat="server" TaxonomyId="E5CD6D69-1543-427b-AD62-688A99F5E7D4" DisplayMode="Read" WebServiceUrl="~/Sitefinity/Services/Taxonomies/HierarchicalTaxon.svc" Expanded="false" TaxonomyMetafieldName="Category" ExpandText="ClickToAddCategories" BindOnServer="true" />
            </p>
          </div>

Author and Date are in the same line, but category seems like it would be outside the <p> and <div> and its displaying under them.

Hi Maciej,

You can use css to change the appearance of the result.
