Extending web application but using different site template is it possible?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

I would like to extend a web application so the extension uses a different site template. At the moment the application uses the Team Site template and I would like the extension to use one of the publishing templates.

The reason I want to do this is to be able to share the content between the two sites so that my users do not have to upload content to two places and also give the two sites a distinct look.

What I've tried already was do the obvious - Click Create/Extend application and did extend.

But you know, as I think of it I probably could change the master page for the team site and the users wouldn't know the difference. It would just mean that they would have to figure out where their stuff ended up at. Hmm.

Anyway, how would I go about extending the application and using a different template?

 

Thanks!

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 1 of 2

  
In this first part of the two part series, Steven covers the differences between Site and Application pages in SharePoint 2007, why each may be used in various circumstances, and prepares for the construction of a menu located application page.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 2 of 2

  
As the second article in a two part series, Steven examines the attributes and details of a SharePoint 2007 application page, including the construction and feature deployment of the same page based project. Since this is a WSS level objective, as opposed to MOSS, you will not need MOSS to work with the code included in this project. Windows Server 2003, WSS, and Visual Studio 2005 are all that is needed, with no additional add-ons. He provides a detailed analysis of each step involved in the creation and deployment of the project.

More Windows 2000 UI Goodies: Extending Explorer Views by Customizing Hypertext Template Files

  

The Web-style interface is the default Explorer folder view for the Desktop Update in Windows 2000. The Desktop Update uses HTML-based hypertext templates to create the Web view, and you can customize these templates to include your own views and commands. This article shows you how the Explorer Web view works and how to build your own custom templates for it. You'll see how to add a command prompt and task buttons to a new folder view using HTML, script, and ActiveX controls. The shell object model and thumbnail shell extensions are also examined, then used to build a simple icon viewer for Explorer.

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? 

Is there a way to update the template of a site?

  

I am looking for a best practice for managing and applying site design changes.

For instance, in another platform, I could release a site for testing or production use, so content would be added.  At some later date, a change* to the design would be needed and I would take a copy of the design only, make the change and then apply the updated design to the existing site. Content would be maintained but the new design changes would be applied. 

      *A change might mean creating new functionality on an existing element, adding new elements or changing an existing element.

How best should this be done in WSS?

Thank you in advance!

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?
