There is often more than one way of achieving the same end. If you
read the last sentence in that section of the manual you will see it
says "You can also use the repository browser to create new folders
directly in the repository."

You are not being very explicit here. What was the problem? What did
you expect to happen? What actually happened?

Sounds like you need to find out more about Subversion itself. Read
