I want to create a new folder but nothing happens

Hi all,

For some reason I can't create new folders in the "Shared files" location. When I click on "+ Create... > Folder" nothing happens. I can make new content like HTML and XML files, but no folders. Not even based on a template. First I thought this was maybe a problem with the rights (although I was logged in as administrator). So I gave a user "coördinator" rights and logged in as that user. Same problem. I also tried to drag 'n drop a folder but it gives me an error like "can't upload object because they are folders or have a size of zero bytes". Does anyone have any experience with this issue? We are using Alfresco Community 5.1...

Already big thanks for every possible solution.

Re: I want to create a new folder but nothing happens

Any information on the alfresco.log file?

When you click create folder, what is happening in the browser network tab?

After entering the folder name + other information--> Press OK button. What is happening in the browser network tab?

Any failure response ?

Thanks for the very quick reply!

Pretty much only LDAP messages

By "browser network tab", do you mean the tab that shows all GET and POST request, like FF's console in the developer tools? If so, there's a GET request:

http://.../share/service/components/form?itemKind=type&itemId=cm:folder&destination=workspace://Spac...' -H 'Host: ...' -H 'User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0' -H 'Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8' -H 'Accept-Language: nl,en-US;q=0.7,en;q=0.3' -H 'Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate' -H 'X-Requested-With: XMLHttpRequest' -H 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' -H 'Alfresco-CSRFToken: 2ySyF0XuhNdBUgDN1CiHqtuCqEKcOtYb7dMbSmgllfI=' -H 'Referer: http://.../share/page/context/shared/sharedfiles' -H 'Cookie: JSESSIONID=E5652D771483CF47185BF3F0CB81918C; alfLogin=1491398651; Alfresco-CSRFToken=2ySyF0XuhNdBUgDN1CiHqtuCqEKcOtYb7dMbSmgllfI%3d; alfUsername3=administrator

Now that GET request doesn't do much at first sight, but when I right click on it and open it in a new tab in the browser it shows some kind of "search page". I see al kinds of textfields like creator, naam, created and buttons send and cancel.

I hope this all makes sense to you :-s...
