How to find and test templates of a web site?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I am new to web site templates, and I know that templates are the base for the creation of web pages.

I have the task of testing hundreds of web pages from a web site.

If a web site (For example, www.microsoft.com) has 1000 web pages, how can I know what are the different templates used to design these 1000 web pages?

The idea is, the test cycle time can be reduced and the reliability on coverage can be more by testing these templates.

Once I know the templates, how should they be tested?

Can anyone please help me know answer to my question?

I googled to check solution to my question and found that, there are many articles on the net which explains how to create web pages from a template.But, my problem is, how do I know what templates are used to create hundreds of web pages in an existing web site (say, www.microsoft.com)

Also, can you please let me know if there are any links relevant to this so that, i can read through it to understand this better?

regards, Krishna

Search does not find text in Word document stored in document library on a Report Center site within



We have a document library on a site created off of the Report Center site template. We uploaded a Word 2007 document with the word zebra in the text. Using the search bar at the top of the page we selected This list: Our document library and searched for zebra. We received no results.

We tested the same thing on another site (site template Team site) within the same site collection and search worked fine.

Does the Report Center search function differently then the search functionality on the Team site?

ASP.NET Web Site Templates

I need to redo a web site, and I'd like to start with a fancy template that's asp.net based.  There are tons of web site templates out there, but I'm not finding any that are focused on asp.net developers.  I've purchased an html/.css template, but it's a pain to integrate it into a web site in VS 2010.  I'd gladly pay $100 for a pre-built project.  Does any one know of a site offering such templates? 

SharePoint 2010 - noticed a possible bug with regard to custom site templates.

Hi All, I'm wondering has anyone else noticed this behaviour in relation to custom site templates. I wanted to move an site A ( content included ) from site collection A to site collection B. I saved site A as a site template ( content included ) I uploaded the site template to site collection B's solution gallery. I created Site B on site collection B using this site template. unfortunately the top links to site A have been preserved causing major confusion to the users. i.e. the shared documents document library link and the tasks link both link to Site A! the links to documents within the document library on the other hand are to site B!? Is this a known issue ? Is this something that I should have expected to happen? look forward to hearing other folks experience with this functionality. thanks and regards, Counie  

Best Way to Convert MOSS 2007 Site Templates to SharePoint 2010 Templates

Ok, I just treid to do something that I didn't really think would work, but now that I've seen it fail, I get to ask the question. Is there a best practice on converting site templates built for MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010. We have several projects that used the Visual Studio Extensions (v1.3) and the SharePoint Solution Generator to build custom site templates and the .wsp packages. I can add and deploy the solution packages using the STSADM tool, but when I try to create a sub-site based on that template, I get an Object Not Set to an Oject Reference Error. In case anyone is wondering, it works fine in MOSS 2007. I have not tried Visual Studio 2010 yet (it's downloading in the background). I'm just wondering if anyone has run into this and what they did to fix it. TIA, John.

Site templates and Library Labels

I have been having an issue with labels and a document library... I have a created a document library...docs, with a new site content type ...doc1 If I then save site as a template....works fine. However, the template I have for the content type doc1, has a Quick Part (label) added to it to show the document version number on the document. In order for this to pass from the library to the document, I need to activate labels on the list through the Information Management policy settings on the library. I have done this  and got the template working correctly, updating the version number within the document. But, now if I save site as a template I get the error...   Error Error exporting the list named "Docs" at the URL: Docs Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. Correlation ID: ea226ba4-0a68-4cfb-9b6f-c557f4ec8ab6 I have tried saving the template at every stage and it is fine up until I turn on the Label option. Any ideas?

Types of site templates

There are a number of articles around that list the different types of site template available in Sharepoint 2010. Some of the templates that appear in these lists do not appear as options when you go to create a new site. SPSNEWS#0 for example. Are these templates that should no longer be used?

Applying site templates fails

Hi, I MOSS 2007 we have created several site templates - all based on 'team site template' and ONLY customized using the browser. All ‘source sites’ are kept in one web app. We have 1)      Migrated this web app to SP 2010 2)      Saved the sites as ‘site templates’ resulting in .wsp-files 3)      Created a site collection WITHOUT reference to a site template 4)      Connected to the  site coll – ‘choose template dialog’ shows up 5)      Added/activated solution (.wsp-file) to the site coll 6)      Tried to apply the custom site template – results in the following error message: ”Filen blev ikke fundet.

How to find out how many users logged onto a sharepoint hosted site?


We have a sharepoint hosted site that is accessible to users externally. 

Sometimes whenever we need to  release some updates, we would like to do it when there is no user browsing the site.

Are there are any tools available? If not, can we write any scripts or code?

Please suggest.
