Using a saved Site Template on a new site - 2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#
 

I created a new site, customized the template to include the web parts and layout that I wanted.  At that point, I saved the template and exported it to my desktop.  I then went into my Administration Center and created a new sharepoint site.  It was created with a default blank layout and I now want to apply my saved template to utilize the layout and webparts I finalized for my first site.  When I go to "Site Template Gallery" I can upload the template from my desktop, which I did so now it is showing in the list; however, I don't see any way to apply it to the site.

I have full admin rights and am using Sharepoint online 2010

I'm going to be rolling out dozens of the same sites, using the same template and just tweaking the titles and content so this is a major need...anyone have any input on how to do this?

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? 

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: \  / : * ?

SharePoint 2010 Site Template forces personal storage? (Using SimplePublishing GhostableInLibrary)

  

I have a major issue with a project I am working on.

First off, I need to have shared storage for the site, so once an administrator adds a web part and configures it properly, it'll show to the end users as well.

Seconly, I need to have a navigation that displays the pages the site contains.

I've tried to search help using Google, but I can't seem to be able to figure out the magic words to find anything useful.

Here's the onet.xml if someone is able to tell what I am doing wrong:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Project Title="test3" Revision="2" ListDir="" xmlns:ows="Microsoft SharePoint" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">

Activating Publishing Feature for Team Site Template in SharePoint 2010

  

A new site collection has been created and uses SharePoint 2010 team site template. How can you activate the publishing feature on it?

 

I have activated the publishing feature at site collection and site level but I still can edit pages etc without requiring check out and approval/publishing. There are probably settings I need to activate on other doc libraries but I wanted to know the best practice for this scenario and how to configure it.

 

Thanks.

Using List templates - saved template has no site definition id or feature id - does not appear in S

  
I have a Record Centre site in SharePoint Server 2010 and have created a number of record libraries. Due to a reorganisation, I need to split my main record library up into about 20 separate libraries, so decided to use the list template as a means to create the new libraries with the same content types, views and workflows.

Used one of my libraries with no content and did Library Settings - Save document library as template and gave a name. Seemed to save OK to the List template gallery.

When I go to Site Actions - More Options the new template does not appear

Have done a fair bit of searching and I think the problem is that the .stp does not seem to have any site definition id and no means to add one.

Have enabled the SharePoint Server Publishing feature at the site level, as suggested by another post, but still has not resolved the problem.

Would value any ideas or insight. Thanks

Saving Site as a Template Results in an Error in Migrated SharePoint 2010

  

Hello,

We've migrated our corporate SharePoint 2007 farm to 2010. We're having an issue with Saving Sites as Templates. I've created a blank site and attempted to Save the Site as a template and receive an error. The logs have the following below about the error:

System.InvalidOperationException: Error generating solution files in temporary directory.

The strange thing is, we have 3 web applications and only one exhibits this behavior.

Any ideas where I can look further?

Thanks in advance.

Visual Web Developer 2010 Express "Copy Web Site" using different login

  

I created a site and am trying to grant another pesron access to upload changes to it without giving them my super-user login.


I made a login for her but I can't test whether it works or not because no matter how much I "disconnect" in the Copy Web Site page of VWD 2010, reconnecting to the same site always logs in as my superuser account without prompting me for a login again.

How do I test is the account it set up correctly before having her try to upload to it?    I want to force the login to remote site dialog to pop up again to test her account.

Any ideas?
