I have a fairly simple SharePoint subsite that has two elements:
- the home page
- a document library
The document library has two content types associated with it. What I would like to do is add a link (or button, whatever) to the home page that creates a new document based on the content type.
Essentially, I want to replicate the behavior of:
- Navigating to the library
- Clicking the Documents tab
- Selecting one of the content types from the New Document icon
All from the subsite's home page. Is this possible?
EDIT: I finally got a chance to look at this. Sorry for the huge delay.
So, I created the new form (test.aspx) and inserted the following script and link(s) in the page:
Instead, the first link launches a dialog entitled "New General Information Bulletin" that has edit and page tabs, and a save, cancel, paste, cut, and copy buttons in the ribbon. It also has two Save and Cancel buttons. Neither appears to do anything.
What am I missing?
