I tried this link but in step 5, I am not able to edit the newform.aspx.I am not able to add the spservices code there, it seems like the codes there can not be edited.

  • Check if you have opened page in Advanced Mode or not. Advanced Mode button can be found in ribbon.

Click "Advanced Mode" button under "Editing" category in the ribbon


Create a new newform and try there. The default one works a little differently. After changing you can make the changed forms The default new/edit form.

Alternatively when in the browser go to the list menu and find the form edit buttons. Click the form you want to edit and add a content editor webpart to the bottom. Either link to the JavaScript in a file or enter it there manually.
