Discussion Board taking the wrong content type. RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I add items to Discussion board using Datasheet view, it takes the Message content type (non-default). And then I can't edit this content type, nor can I reply to it.(I get error message)

    Although when I add a new discussion using the New button, it takes the default content type. Works fine

    Any idea why this strange behaviour?

    Also, is it possible to edit the content type for any item in Discussion Board?

  • The two native discussions are Discussion & Message, with Discussion being the default.  What one is being defaulted to when using datasheet?

    You could try adding the Content type column to your datasheet view and seeing if that allows you to select the CT type?
