How to Fix the Folder Autocomplete

The autocomplete function uses the core folder functionality to search through and return the folder paths for you to use in your module like show below.

The reason that this might happen is that the folder you are looking for was created through a means outside of the DNN core functionality. For example, you might have created the folder through FTP or Windows Explorer. Fixing this is easy.

1. Go to the File Manager in the Admin menu.

Admin Menu > File Manager

2. Check the Recursive checkbox, then click the Synchronize Files link.

3. Your autocomplete should be restored.
