we are currently using a custom ContentType for deploying a custom list with custom forms for the new, edit and display page.

  <ContentType ID="... >
      <XmlDocument NamespaceURI="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/v3/contenttype/forms/url">
        <FormUrls xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/v3/contenttype/forms/url">

But now through customers new requirements, the Name of _layouts Folder should Change from




My question: how can i can Change this URL in the contenttype and deploy it to the production Environment? Is this possible to Change this after a contenttype is already deployed and in use?

Can you use SharePoint Designer? If yes, open the list, click in your Content Type and you will see an area to modify this.

  • I would do it programmatically or better deployable! – BOG Jul 28 '15 at 19:07
