Custom Columns and Content Types missing form Site Columns Gallery RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I Created several custom columns and used them a in series of libraries. At the time i was pretty pleased with the solution. I was able to create a custom column which was used by several libraries and sub sites. However now a few months latter i need to do some changes and i cannot find by custom columns. The libraries and sub sites all have the column fields with data and they are all working but the custom columns in gallery are missing. Were would they have gone???

  • Hi Keliud,


    Just want make it clear, did you create site column by going to site actions>site settings>site columns>create?


    If you create site column in this way, it won’t disappear automatically. And you should make sure this site column have not been deleted by other users, cause these columns which were created based on this site column would still work even if the site column was deleted.
