Server Error in Save Site as Template

When I try to save a site as a template, it fails with the following message if I check "include content":     Server Error in '/' Application. ...Any ideas how best to start diagnosing this? The error message recommends that I edit the application's web.config to show custom errors, but, there are 32 web.configs in the sharepoint 14 hive - not sure which one to edit.  The site in question contains one custom list with one custom plain-text column, and one nearly empty page with some text.

Unable to save site as a template


When creating a site template from site actions --> site settings --> save site as template i get the below error


I narrowed the problem down to a list attribute The 'NoCrawl' attribute is not allowed. The wsp is created in the solution store but cannot be used to deploy a site, when it is used i get the same error The 'NoCrawl' attribute is not allowed.


The site that i am saving as a template is a freshly created team site with no custom features, lists, libraries, addons of any sort. Therefore it cannot be a list or library that i have created so I thought it might be a custom webpart that is enabled on the site collection, i went and uninstalled and removed all custom webparts from the site collection but still get the same error.

When I create a fresh web application, the save site as a template operation completes successfully.

Can anyone advise where i might start to narrow this problem down?

Thanks in advance.

How to Save a site template to farm and deploy it to new site


Hi all,

When I create a new site and plan to save it as template to create multiple new sites.

Different from MOSS 2007, I cannot find the Save Site as Template option under System Settings. What I did is to type savetmpl.aspx website and save the template.

After that, I tried to use stsadm.exe -o addtemplate command to add the template to farm, but I got another error again!

Cannot find or parse web template file c:\Templates\template.wsp.

I googled a lot websites but only found one related solution to to use stsadm.exe -o addsolution command. But after trying that, I still cannot  see the template when I create new site collection via Sharepoint Central Administration.

Can anyone please help me and let me know how to fix the issue?




can template save custom pages?


I created a template off a site I made last year (without content). That site had some custom pages with webparts on them.  These pages were linked to from the Quick Launch menu.  I just made a new site using that template and it appears the custom pages weren't part of the template as when I click on the links to them in the QL menu, I get a 404 page not found error. I tried again saving the template with content this time and my custom pages show up - but then I have all the lists/libraries filled with old content.  Any remedy?

I am on MOSS 2007 and can use Designer.

Problem with list controls and update progress template



I have an update panel that surrounds a wizard control which I use in conjunction with a update progress control. Now my update progress control works perfectly, with my animated gif and div tag that lays over my wizard control when the user goes from step to step. However, there is a problem that I am struggling to solve. A number of my steps use controls like list boxes, and when the update progress control fires, the list control is not laying underneath my div an animated gif no matter how high a make my css z-index on the div.

Does anyone have a way of solving this?


Creating a Site Column that Looks up an External List causes error when saving site as a template.


I'm not sure what the best practice is here, but I'm having a major issue trying to save sites as templates and I think I narrowed it down as to what the issue is.

When I try to save a site as a template, it creates the solution package, but it doesn't activate it.  When I try to activate it manually, I get the following error:

Feature definition with Id e9431ed5-27b1-4c33-9eeb-81b4ace9d372 failed validation, file 'test1ListInstances\ElementsFields.xml', line 481, character 231: The 'SystemInstance' attribute is not allowed.

I opened up the solution package and looked at the ElementsFields.xml file.  I traced the line to this:

<Field Type="BusinessData" DisplayName="Acme People Name" Required="FALSE" EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE" Group="Custom Columns" ID="{55b3bbba-a7e3-4698-9946-648a6b726e9e}" SourceID="{026904fd-f2d0-4e57-a239-c6da838458fa}" StaticName="Acme_x0020_People_x0020_Name" Name="Acme_x0020_People_x0020_Name" SystemInstance="ACME" EntityNamespace="http://????????:28241" EntityName="People" BdcField="FullName" Profile="" HasActions="True" SecondaryFieldBdcNames="0" RelatedF

Remove Deleted Template from "New Site" template list


A site template was deleted from the solutions gallery and deleted out of the recycling bin before it was deactivated.

List Web Part Issues in Site Template

I have about 10 list web parts each list with a custom content type and custom columns and a default view set. I am displaying these web parts on the site's default page. Everything looks great. WHEN I save the site as a template and create a NEW site from the template, the list web parts do not automatically grab the default views from the libraries, instead they just pull in the default Title column and thats it. I have to manually modify each web part to grab the default view. Is there a way around this? I don't understand why it cannot grab the default view automatically.



Provision Shared Documents List View Web Part in Site Template


I'm trying to add the Shared Documents "web part" that is part of the default Team Site template to a custom site template.  However, from what I've found this is not really a web part for Shared Documents, but a generic List View web part with Shared as the data source.  Also, I don't see where this is listed in the onet.xml file of the Team Site template (which I believe is the "sts" template, correct?).  Also, you cannot export/download the xml for this webpart from the page and when it is viewed via SP Designer, the way it is defined is not supported in an onet.xml file. 

So how do you add this webpart to a site template?

Move a wiki library? (Save wiki as template/download wiki page)


Hi all,

I'm using SharePoint Foundation and there is no option to save a wiki library as a template, and the Download a copy control is disabled for the wiki pages. Is this normal? Is there anyway to save a wiki as a template?

Or, is there a different way to move an entire wiki library to a new site collection? The old, easy way was save it as a template and use that template in another site. Am I missing something?

Thanks for your time.

Save as template button is disabled



I want to save a site as template so I can create a new site based on this template.
In SP2007 this was easy by opening site settings > site actions > save as template
In SP2010 this link is missing, and in SharePoint Designer the button in the ribbon is greyed out.

All of the sites in SharePoint show this behavior, I cannot save any of my sites as template (the link is not there in SharePoint, and in SPD the button is disabled).
Do I need to enable some feature in SP2010 first in order to use this functionality ?

Customizing blog. "Save as template" produces broken template



I have a problem in such simple scenario:

1. Create new site with BLOG template

2. Save this site as template, eg BLOG_V2

3. Create new site from new template

4. Try to make new template from new site - I get "Error exporting the list named "Posts" at the URL: Lists/Posts"

And I also see that list "Posts" is broken in strange way.

$web.Lists |Select Title, DefaultViewUrl

PS C:\Users\AYuryshev> $web.Lists |Select Title, DefaultViewUrl

Save as template kill the web part connection



I have a Sharepoint web site and I would like to save it as a template in order to create several site with the same structure and the same web pages.

On some of my web part pages I have some webpart connected to each other (mostly BDC List web part and BDC related list web part). When I save the site as a template and create a new site based on this template most of the connection are not present in the new site. Does anyone know what is the problem and how to solve it? I really need this to work as the site template will contains tens of pages with those connection and we will have to create tens of site with that template so manually recreating the connection is not possible.


Thank you for your help.
