As title says, I can only see the 'Title' field when adding a new item to my custom list.

Any ideas?

I've double checked the field definitions and checked the field references are in both default views. No problems there.

I can create the list using the definitions, and I can add new list items, and the custom fields are disblayed in the list table and in list settings - but not in the 'Add New Item' dialog.

EDIT: I think this may be because my custom list definitions are inheriting from the 'Item' content type if this is of any use to anyone about to suggest an answer!?

  • How are you creating the custom fields? Xml Feature Definitions? Code? Through the UI?

The solution being:

"Remove the content type reference from the markup..."
