Question:

Ability to create Site templates from Subsites

Adam: 5 days ago

Is there a way to create Site templates from a subsite?I do know that we cannot "Save Site as template" when Publishing feature is enabled. Also, getting directly to "/_layouts/savetmpl.aspx is not a supported methodology. Can anyone let me know how we can create templates from a subsite? We would be using a lot of content types which we would use for many sites that are going to be created. So we wanted to save site as template and create sites as and when we need and not redo all them.

Help is appreciated.

can you try to enable the property 'SaveSiteAsTemplateEnabled' with powershell:

$web = Get-SPWeb http://contoso/site/subsite1/subsite2/
$web.AllProperties['SaveSiteAsTemplateEnabled'] = 'true'
$web.Update()

and then access to /_layouts/savetmpl.aspx
