I have a list which editform and newform fields order is different, the question is why? somebody told me the edit form might be unghosted, if so, how can I confirm this and revert it so that it uses the same order of the new form?

You could see different field ordering because some of the Fields have ShowOnDisplayForm=TRUE but ShowOnEditForm=FALSE.

Finally, you can check to see if the page is unghosted/customised using PowerShell.

Say the Url of the Page is http://sharepoint/lists/mylist/editform.aspx

Then in PowerShell do the following:-

$web = Get-SPWeb "http://sharepoint";

$editFormPage = $web.GetFile("/lists/mylist/editform.aspx");


If its ghosted/uncustomized then it will say:- CustomizedPageStatus : Uncustomized

If its unghosted/customized then it will say:- CustomizedPageStatus : Customized
