Editing the new folder form

Question asked by vamirr on Feb 8, 2012

We're finding that some of our users are having issues with the creation of folders and content.  From the user prospective, they are unable to create folders (the Save button is greyed out).   I found the issue to be the naming convention users were trying to use.  In the case of folders, many users were using <Title>:<category> or something similar.  Alfresco takes issue with the colon, but does not present the user with any sort of feedback as it it.   In our previous ECM system, folders and documents had no character limitations and as a result users became accustom to certain naming conventions.

It would not take much effort to put a small tag into the new folder dialog to include a short blurb about what characters are not accepted in folder names. 

My issue is where is the template that defines the New Folder dialog?     I initially thought that \webapps\share\WEB-INF\classes\alfresco\site-webscripts\org\alfresco\modules\documentlibrary\create-folder.get.html.ftl contained this template, however I've found that even after removing absolutely everything in that folder, the template as displayed through Share is unchanged.

Any suggestions?
