"Duplicate content type name" error when trying to create a site from a custom site template

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
 

I am getting "A duplication content type name 'Approval' was found" error, when I try to create a new site based on a custom template.  These are the steps that result in the error:

  1. Create a new blank site.
  2. Without making any changes, save the blank site as a site template called "test".
  3. Try to create a new site based on the "test" template.
  4. Get the above error.

I did notice that when I tried creating site from the template in a different area of my site collection, the error name changed from "Approval" to "Requestor". 

As it stands I cannot use custom templates in my site collection.  Any advice on how to overcome this error?

404 Page Not Found Error When Trying to Create a Site From a Custom Site Template

  

I just moved a site collection from a one server to another, and now I can't make copies of my sites using custom site templates.

The details of my site structure are in the next paragraph, in case they are relevant.
On the original server, I created custom templates for my sites, and checked the Include Content checkbox
when creating the templates. Everything works perfectly on that server. When I moved the whole site collection to another
server using stsadm backup/restore everything was there, including my customized web parts. But now I can't create new sites
from templates - and I'm I'm not trying to use templates created on the original server. I'm creating new templates on the new
server. It successfully creates the templates, but when I try to create a new site from one of those templates, I get a
"HTTP 404 Page Not Found" page. It succeeds in creating the new site, and the new site shows up in my navigation bar,
but when I click on the new site, I get a "404 Page Not Found" page.

*********Details*************
On the original server, I created one top level site for my whole department. Under that, I have one subsite for each of our
external clients. Under each of those, I have one subsite for each project for that client. I used a Team site as my starting
point at each of the 3 leve

Duplicate field name error, creating new site from custom template

  
I've made a site that maps the site (with a table of contents) and i export it to another site collection. I'm able to install and activate the solution in the other site collection, however when i'm going to create a new site using the site i've installed as a template it pops an error saying "A duplicate field name Wiki_x0020_Page_x0020_CategoriesTaxHTField" was found." I have no clue what this means. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance

Create Custom Site Template & Deploy as Farm Solution

  

So I've seen a few posts and blogs about this, but nothing with the specific error I'm getting.  All I'm trying to do is create a custom site template from an existing site (now WSP), and make that custom template available in CA so I can create host-named site collections from that template in PowerShell.  Apparenly this was a lot easier in 2007, as you could just save your template as STP, and run some stsadm addsolution to get it in the farm.  With 2010, I've read there are 2 options:

  1. Install-SPWebTemplate
  2. Deploy via Visual Studio 2010

I've tried running Install-SPWebTemplate (which only takes CAB files), and NOTHING I do works.  I've created a cab from the WSP with makecab, I've renamed the WSP to CAB, and all I get is "cannot find or parse web template file".  So on to VS2010.

Using this article as a guide (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff408263.aspx), I created a new 2010 Import existing solution project, left all items selected, and the import was successful.  I made a change or two to the ONET.xml to fix some things, and then I just try to deploy it to the farm.  Whether I set the URL to the root intranet site, or the CA URL, I get deployment conflict errors:

What's the "right" way to create a site template and inherit a custom master page?

  

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in 2007 whatever masterpage you had selected was saved in the site template and was re-created when a new site was created from said template.

It occurs to me that it's different in 2010.

Custom master pages from a site template aren't inherited and they don't keep the specified value when you ask it to before creating the template itself.

So, what's the "correct" way?  What's the difference in making a site template using a blank site or publishing site?

Here I thought I'd be able to make a site template and move on to my next project.

Thanks in advance!

Error when creating a custom site template

  

Hi

In VS 2010, I created a new SP project to create a custom site template.

W/O modifying the content, except setting the output path of the webtemp file to another language, I have the following error when I try to create a site based on this template :

 

failed to instantiate file "default.master" from module "defaultmasterpage": source path "default.master" not found

 

I've taken a look at OOB site templates, and I don't see what is missing.

I'd appreciate any help.

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

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: \  / : * ?

Projects Web Database Site Template immediate error

  
I decided to explore the Projects Web Database site template - clicked to create the site, and immediately, received an "an error has occurred." message on almost every tab of the site. What am I missing?  Am I supposed to configure something before I create this type of site?   I get this error in the event viewer: Log Name:      Application Source:        Microsoft-SharePoint Products-Access Services Date:          9/8/2010 10:03:43 PM Event ID:      3 Task Category: Data Layer     Access Services: An unexpected error occurred. Exception message: There is a compatibility range mismatch between the Web server and database "WSS_Content_PT", and connections to the data have been blocked to due to this incompatibility. This can happen when a content database has not been upgraded to be within the compatibility range of the Web server, or if the database has been upgraded to a higher level than the web server. The Web server and the database must be upgraded to the same version and build level to return to compatibility range.   Any help is appreciated!  Thanks!
