  • Looks like the custom form for the list content you have for this list is messing with new folder form.

  • Is there an alternative method to create a folder? within SharePoint designer, or something else?

  • Maybe workspace or designer, but more important is why is does not work. So there might be a problem with your form.

  • There's no problem with my form that I'm aware of. It's just a custom form I created in designer for new items. It functions as intended. I tried making a new form in Designer without any customization, and set it as the default for new items. Still had the same issue.

  • new folder is a new item as well, that is why you have this issue

  • Hi,

     

    There is a similar thread may help you: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010general/thread/678b7904-a8ca-4009-919d-ec55a2b9a17d

    In order to avoid this issue, you should set your form as default form for the content type rather than the default for the list.
