Publishing Portal Missing Team Site Template

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


I created a new site collection and set the root site as a publishing portal.  I then went into "manage site features" under "Site Actions" and activated the "Team Collaboration Lists" feature.  However I cannot find the "Team Site" template when I try to create a new site.  Is there a feature I'm missing?

Activating Publishing Feature for Team Site Template in SharePoint 2010


A new site collection has been created and uses SharePoint 2010 team site template. How can you activate the publishing feature on it?


I have activated the publishing feature at site collection and site level but I still can edit pages etc without requiring check out and approval/publishing. There are probably settings I need to activate on other doc libraries but I wanted to know the best practice for this scenario and how to configure it.



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? 

Adding a custom control to the SharePoint 2010 Team Site Wiki Page Template ( wkpstd.aspx ) programm

Topic This is maybe my last post about the Team Site Wiki Page customization with the aim of exceeding its limitations. This time we are going to customize the unique template ( wkpstd.aspx) by replacing the control that renders the editable content by a custom one. In this post example, we will take advantage of the use of this custom control to render not editable additional contents, for instance, a header and a footer that could be the same for a specific Wiki Page Library. Of course, we are not going to really customize the template, but we are going to use a delegate control to replace the control at runtime. Here are the screen shots of the result: We can see a non editable Header and Footer on the Team Site Wiki Page In edit mode these additional contents are not rendered, but we can add new content as usual And of course, after having saved the page, the new content is rendered wtih the non editable Header and Footer. Steps required   If you look at the Team Site Wiki Page template, wkpstd.aspx, you can see the control that is rendering the editable content/ <SharePoint:EmbeddedFormField ID="WikiField" FieldName="WikiField" ControlMode="Display" runat="server" /> We are first going to create a custom EmbeddedFormField control Then, we are going to use a delegate control to replace the native EmbeddedFor

Unfortunately at this point of time I can’t change the site template from publishing portal to some other template, I am helpless.

Thanks in advance.

Missing excel and visio webparts in publishing site



Created a publishing site - but I'm missing the Excel Web access and Visio web access  webparts - and all features are running...

If I create a new team site in a new site collection they are there ...

What's going on ? - whats missing in the publishing site ?

No longer have the ability to move webparts to different zones on the default "team site" template

I noticed today that one of the default site templates that i most widely use in sharepoint 2007 -the "Team Site" template when used in sharepoint 2010 i can no longer move webparts on the main home page from one zone to another from the browser in sharepoint 2010, or specify where they should be when creating them.   I am able to do this if i create a blank site, but that would also involve creating all the neccesary document libraries and  other team site lists.  I suppose as a last resort i could make my own template off of the blank site template that is similar to the team site template. but i am curious as to why this has been setup this way, or if anyone else has noticed this behavior

Publishing Portal template versus Collaboration Portal template


I am looking to create a SharePoint intranet and am trying to determine which type of site collection template will serve us the best.  I understand that the Publishing Portal template only allows for the creation of publishing sites in its collection.

Does the Collaboration Portal allow for publishing sites to be built in its collection, or only collaboration sites?

I'm really find that we will need a variety of different types of sites in the collection which will define our intranet.

Any advice from those who have been there (and learned the hard way!) appreciated.

There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what your are trying to accomplish.

Portal Site Connection Missing After Upgrade


I have just upgraded to 2010 from 2007 and noticed that the portal site connection is not showing up on the different site collections it was setup on. If I go into site actions->portal site connections, the setting is still enabled and the URL is still correct. How can I get this back? This was a very useful feature..

Error creating site template for publishing site



I am trying to create site template for publishing site in SharePoint 2010.

I have a publishing site and have created site template for the same using _layouts/savetmpl.aspx.

But when I tried to create site from that template in the same site collection it throws error, actually it creates the site but not able to set the home page as /pages/default.aspx. If I edit the url as http://<new site created>/pages/default.aspx the site is working fine.

The onet.aml for the site template is: 


<Project Title="AsTestPckSiteTemplate" Revision="0" UIVersion="4" SiteLogoUrl="" SiteLogoDescription="" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">


<!--<NavBar Name="SharePoint Top Navbar" Url="/poc/infonet/Depts/AsTestNewSite" ID="1002" />-->

Status List WebPart or KPIListWebPart missing when create sites based in a site template that has it


Hi Everyone,

I have a site collection in SharePoint server 2010, and within this site collection I have a site. This site has KPIListWebPart or Status List WebPart. I have added this WebPart through SPD 2010, because through SharePoint you cannot add this particular WebPart.

The problem is the following:

The site (with the Status List WebPart) has to be a Site Template, in order to allow the users to create sites as needed. In the site, the Status List WebPart works perfectly, but when I create a new site based in the site template, the Status List WebPart is missing. 

Any idea why is it happening?


Thanks in advance and best regards,


Publishing subsite inside Team site


Hi All,

I have a publishing site as root site and I have 4 subsites under it with Team site template.

I would like to create a new subsite in one of the team site template subsites.

When I create a publishing site, the site was created with the publishing feature on but looks like it still retained the team site layout (with the left side quick launch navigation). Is it possible to create a actual publishing site under team site in this scenario?

Thanks in advance!

Search Usage Reports Missing for Site


We have Usage Analysis enabled on our employee portal farm.  The SSP in this farm crawls all local SharePoint sites and one child farm.  When we view search and query reports, one of the site collections (in a dedicated web app) is missing.  All other web apps/site collections appear in the search/query reports.  The missing site collection is using the standard search pages and web parts - no customization with the object model that might break usage logging.

Has anyone else ran into this or know the solution?

workflows when saving site as template with content

I have have a MOSS 2007 site on a production server with custom workflows.  I saved the site as a template with content and used the template to create a sibling site.  I am testing it and the workflows aren't working.  Is this to be expected? I have read that workflow don't work when saving between development and production, but I can't find anything that addresses both sites being on production. Will I need to recreate the custom workflows by hand?
