I had an issue that was answered in this question. However the answer doesn't explain how to perform the fix. How do you change the Type attribute of a list?

  • Is it a list in site content you are talking about or a list you have first added in VS?

You can just add Type="109" there in the Elements.xml if you are adding it using visual studio.

Otherwise check this link to add the type in there.
