How to get IntelliJ IDEA to display directories?

I've been trying out IntelliJ IDEA for JavaScript editing and I'm liking it so far, but I'm having a small problem with a new project.

I can't seem to be able to get IDEA to display the directories in the project dir in the Project view. Even if I manually add a directory, it refuses to display it.

I think this probably has something to do with the fact that it tries to apply Java conventions, but when I imported an old Eclipse project, it showed all directories just fine.

Do I have to use Eclipse to create projects and import in IDEA to get the directories visible, or is there some other trick?

IDEA version 8.1.3, the code is just a plain bunch of HTML and JS files not in any kind of a Java environment.

Answer

It appears I need to manually create a Java module (File->New Module) inside the project to actually see the "proper" directory view. I do wonder why it didn't show up when I created it with the project.
