Hi, In my model I have cm:folder as my base type for most of my custom type entities.

I did this because my application will manage 'collection' of content items, so i need to be able to add content item to customized types.

However, when I did modify the web-client I get the following errors when i try to create a new content:

User:admin WARN  [bean.content.BaseContentWizard] Failed to add 'mycorp:LocalVODContent' to the list of content types as the type is not a subtype of cm:content.

Now i have no way of creating my specialized folder type unless i create a 'space' first then use specialize type action to make it a LocalVODContent.

So I have 2 question:

1- I it a good idea to extend cm:folder or i am going into a mine field ?
2- Is it possible to modify the web client so it have a 'create LocalVODContent' in the user interface ?

I am using version 3.0 lab.

Thanks.
