      Description

      1. Export a post from a forum (or discussion, doesn't matter).
      2. Choose Box.net, authenticate successfully
      3. Next screen forces me to create a folder for some reason (why? and can we print existing folders there in a menu perhaps?)
      4. Enter new folder name
      5. Bombs with this error: "Failed to send your data to the selected portfolio system: original error was Failed to create your target folder on box.net"

        I created a folder manually on Box.net and it worked fine, I could select it from the menu.

        I then tried another new folder (Folder 2) but that failed too.

        Assuming this is going to happen the same for all new Box.net accounts, I think we should either

        1) Tell people what settings need to be changed for Box.net to make this work

        2) Remove the "create folder" facility from the interface and include a message+link to the appropriate place on box.net to set up folders there.

        3. I was under the impression that you must upload within a subfolder, I will fix that.

        I don't know why it's failing to create folders for you - you're the first person to say that unless I introduced a regression here very recently.
