Hi, we have a bunch of feature stapling done against some of our site definitions on a solution we are working on.
This feature staple has a bunch of feature dependancies which all work in a variety of ways. One of these dependancies then uses a feature receiver class to do some post provisioning setting up of web part connections and the like. This all works very well
when creating a new site from a site definition etc etc.
The problem arises when a user opts to provision a site in this way, and then uses the 'save as template' function within sharepoint. (BTW this is WSS 3.0 / MOSS). The site template saves correctly, but now the feature receiver never runs. I'm assuming this
is because the associated feature staple doesnt run either?
I've looked around and seen some reference to feature stapling not working against templates. Is this true?
