Create a Site template with subsites in Sharepoint Server 2010

  
Hi, I'm with my first SharePoint project, and we are using server 2010 as a Document Management system. The thing is our company has about 300 customers, and we have to create 300 site collections, 1 per customer.  For each site collection, I use the blank site template, and it's very simple page, as I just need a document library in the home page, and then I need to create a subsite called "cases" and the inside profiles, the users create a document library for each case. For subsite I mean, I create a new site and I choose the option to share the top menu, so basically the site has 2 tabs. So basically what I need is a template that has 2 tabs, Home and Cases. Home with a document library in home and Cases empty. Is there a simple way to achieve this? I guess maybe I have to edit some XML files to create a Site Template. If this is the case, can someone point me to the right documentation. Second, I need to create a Visual Basic project so that the final user has a form, and he just inputs the Customer Name and the code must automatically create a new site with the template I metioned before. I guess that once I have the template this won't be very hard to achieve, as I have seen this SPSite class. The question is, can I have the template with the 2 tabs, o maybe I have to use 2 templates, and write code to create the home site and the Cases Subsite.. Ple

Create site template and adding subsite using site template is broken in sharepoint 2010

  
I am trying to create a site template base on an existing site and try to use the new site template to generate other sub-sites.  It sounds simple and the code is not that difficult to follow; however, Microsoft has made it impossible to accomplish by having a bug in their template creation process.   //Generate web template from existing website using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://localhost")) { SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb("/barrington/accounting"); web.SaveAsTemplate("NewDepartmentTemplate", "NewDepartmentTemplate", "NewDepartmentTemplate", true); }   //Generate sub site using the new template using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://localhost")) { SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb("/barrington/accounting"); SPWebTemplate tp = null; foreach (SPWebTemplate wt in web.GetAvailableWebTemplates((uint)1033)) { if (wt.Title == "NewDepartmentTemplate") { tp = wt; break; } } if (tp != null) { SPWeb newWeb = web.Webs.Add("NewDepartment", "NewDepartment", "NewDepartment", (uint)1033, tp, false, false); } } Error: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException was unhandled   Message=The content type name '$Resources:_FeatureId367b94a9-4a15-42ba-b4a2-32420363e018,DataSourceContentTypeName;' cannot contain: \  / : * ?

Reg: Does Custom site definition created in SharePoint 2007 works in Sharepoint 2010

  

All,

If one has created a custom site definition in sharepoint 2007, Once the whole site is migrated to sharePoint 2010 will that "custom site definition" created in 2007 will work without breaking in SharePoint 2010?

If No, what has to be done to make it work on 2010.

Thanks,

Srini

SharePoint Desinger is throwing error when trying to create a workflow in a site

  

Hi,

Lately may be from only couple of days we are experiencing this issue. When we are trying to create a workflow on any SharePoint Site, or when I try to open an previously created workflow in SP designer, it is throwing me this error:

'The Server could not complete your request. Contact your Internet Service Provider or Web Server Administrator to make sure that the server has FrontPage Server Extensions or SharePoint Services installed'.

I was able to open or create workflows without any issue before and also there were no major changes done on that server lately.Please help me in fixing this.

Thanks


SharePoint 2010 Migration - Site Definition (default.aspx ignored)

  
We have attached a 2007 content db to a 2010 instance of SharePoint and now...the site is not using the default.aspx that is in the file system.

In fact, I am not sure which default.aspx page it is using.  I had expected that after the migration it would be using the site definition default.aspx and the customMasterpage which is located in the site definition.

I have confirmed via the database that it is using the appropriate site definition (web template and configuration id) however it seems to be using some other default.aspx and it is ignoring the custom master page designation in the onet.xml file.

Any ideas on what is going on here?
