Can't create a folder in a custom list

  • Can't create a folder in a custom list Frank Rosario

    I'm trying to create folders in a set of custom lists I've created. However, when I try to do this, the New Folder button in the Ribbon is disabled. I read up on the matter; and this lead me to look to enable folder creation in List Settings -> Advance Settings. However, there doesn't seem to be an option to enable folder creation on the page. It shouldn't be a permission related issue; as I created the lists; and I'm also an admin on the farm.

    I could use a document library; but we will not be uploading documents to the list; so this is more then I need.

    What are my options, or what am I doing wrong?

    Thanks, Frank

  • I would try to disable it and then re-enable it. Once it is enabled in the advanced settings on my sites I can create the folder.

  • I have created several custom user controls that I added to the Redering templates of some forms in a custom solution for WSS 3. Most of these templates have codebehind and they all are correctly deployed to the CONTROLTEMPLATES folder on the 12 hive. The forms worked fine until the security folks said we had to enable FIPS. Once this was done, Sharepoint went nuts until I changed the machineKey setting in the web.config file to use the 3des algorithm as I had found on many sites. This fixed most of the issues except for my custom forms .ascx pages as everyone of them still give a FIPS error

  • I've created a custom list in SharePoint 2010 from a custom content type (inherit from item) and I would like to give the users the option to order the items in this list - similar to how users can... in 2010. I also added the OrderedView property on the View element. After creating a list from this defintion, when I look at the list settings and attempt to modify a view then I see the options that indicate that the list can be ordered by a user. However, I'm missing the button (Change Item Order) on the ribbon that allows a user to order the list. I can navigate to the /_layouts/reorder.aspx

  • I'm attempting to permission a folder using the Object Model API that is created by an ASP.NET page wrapped into a feature. I am able to create and permission the folder for users that are in the appropriate SharePoint role however, I need to permission the folders that are also in more restrictive roles. The folders are created with no problem but I need to break the inheritance and permission the folder. I attempted to wrap the folder creation/permission code in SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(delegate() { ... }); I also tried using web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true

  • item event receivers. However, if I wanted to create the summary-feature (daily/weekly notifications) - what would be the best way to go about this?

  • I have a custom master page, custom.master, for a publishing site. It was working fine, however I just enabled anonymous access to the publishing site, and now browsing to the home page... attribute in the content page.

Here's what's happening. When I activate ContentTypes, the content type and field are deployed as expected into my site collection.

  • I have two lists (List A and List B) that were created from the same list template. The Dispform for List A was customized (some fields were cut out and others were rearranged). The customized Dispform works perfectly with List A. I’ve copied the customized DispForm to the folder for List B (List A and B were created from the same template) and then connected the customized DispForm through the Supporting Files tab on the List Properties dialogue box for List B. However, when I try to display the data in List B, I get the following error: “Unable to display this Web Part

  • or automatic creation of an accident list item. Now the process will need to have a set of official forms filled in by various people. This is where I find SharePoint limiting me with it's document centric... but I can't find anything ideal, or even just something I'm semi happy with. I'm hoping that people could answer with ways they can think of for using a workflow to drive further document creation...SharePoint workflow by nature is document centric in that you have to have a 'thing'; A object for the workflow to run on. This object can be a document, form or simple list item but this thing has
