How to use “Save Site as Template” features in Publishing Site SharePoint 2013

By krishna on 8/12/2015

In this blog I will show how to use already saved site templates. “Save Site as a Template” link will not appear in site settings page if you created your site as a publishing web site.

What is understand by this is Microsoft has disabled this feature from publish site because all publishing pages uses some content types and these content types not exists in the other sites collection so due to this point this feature is not available if you created your site as a publishing web site.

Now here I explain that how we can use this features in publishing site on SharePoint 2013.

There are following steps to perform it.

1-      Open the site collection an enter the Url like as (<your site collection url>/_layouts/15/savetmpl.aspx)

2-      When I enter this Url, a page open’s with  following error as shown below in screen shot.

3-      Now open the publishing site in SharePoint designer 2013.

4-      Go to the File Tab Control and Click the Site Options Ribbon Button

5-      Open the site options dialog box and select SaveSiteAsTemplatesEnable.

6-      Click modify button, open the dialog box and enter the value true.

7-      Click OK Button.

 

8-      After that open the same Url which was earlier giving error (<your site collection url>/_layouts/15/savetmpl.aspx)

9-      Open’s a following page on screen

10-  Enter the file name, enter the template name and fill template description. Check include content option and click the ok button. A new page opens as shown below in screen shot

11-  Click Ok Button.

 

After that I create a new sub site in existing site collection. A new page opens as shown below in screen shot.

 

 

1-      Select the custom tab. Here all custom templates listed below.

2-      Select publishsitetemplate custom site template.

3-      Click Ok Button.

 

So like this you can see that my new site inherits all features of existing site template.
