Content Type Hub Gotchas
As we mentioned yesterday, when published Content Types land in the target Site Collections, they are marked Read Only to discourage editing by users.
This is probably a good thing, because if they change this setting and edit them – maybe by adding new Site Columns – their edits will be lost if you re-publish the Content Type.
There are a few other things to watch out for.
SharePoint can’t publish Lookup type Site Columns.
This is because SharePoint has no mechanism to copy the associated Lookup List into the target Site Collections.
Instead, of Lookup columns, use Choice or Managed Metadata columns.
Also, the Content Type Hub won’t publish SharePoint 2010 Workflows associated with your Content Types.
But hopefully, you won’t be using those anyway.
