FrontPage 2002 is packed full of improvements and new features, and includes tighter integration with Microsoft Office. The result is that documents created in Word and Microsoft Excel drop right into your Web site. Tools such as the clipboard, context sensitive search, and advanced copy and paste features have been introduced. Improved views and editing features make content creation faster and easier.

Publishing site template saved using /_layouts/savetmpl.aspx

A trick we used in MOSS 2007 doesn't seem to work in SharePoint 2010 although it seemed to work for someone who asked the same question in this forum.  We know publishing site do not have the "Save as site template" as an option in the site settings so we used <site>/_layouts/savetmpl.aspx to save the site template.  Unfortunately, new site created using the saved template is throwing a 404 error.  And the site was actually created (can see in View All Site Content).  We need to be able to easily create sub-sites with the same look and feel and set of document libraries/lists.  Any advice?

Deploying features to a specific sub-site

Hi all, I have a Root Site collection, and it has various sub sites, I have a couple of lists and content types that are specific to some sub sites, and the client doesn't want these lists and content types viewable across the company so it makes sense that these are deployed to their respective sub sites only so that they are not available at the root level. I know if you go through the Site Settings for the sub sites, you can create content types and lists that are only available in that site, but I am battling to deploy these content type & lists to their specific sub-sites though Visual Studio 2010, does anyone know how to do this?
