Replace the default list edit form

  Date: Oct 08    Category: MOSS    Views: 1572

I created a new (custom) edit form aspx page for a list (MOSS 2007). And I was
trying to replace the default edit aspx page by this custom one by using
sharepoint designer 2007.

Here is what I did:
1) Right click the list
2) In the List Properties dialog box, click the Supporting Files tab.
3) Browse to the new edit form page I created
4) Click Apply and Ok.

However it always changes back to the default setting.

Make sure that select the content type on the Supporting Files tab. The
dropdown is alphabetical so for a lot of lists it defaults to the content
type Folder. You need to select the content type because forms don't apply
to folders.

On the Supporting Files tab, make sure the dropdown labeled "Content
type specific forms" is set to "Item" (or the name of your content type)
rather than "Folder" (which is the default). Change that selection, make
your changes, and click OK.

I never have figured this one out...anyone else see this behavior?

In the Supporting Files tab, there is a drop down to choose. And choose "Item",
not "Folder".
