I had created custom content types in site settings that I was referencing with a list on a site. When I did a save as template from the site, would that have also saved the content types?
I passed this code to QA and they were unable to create a new site using the template. They received a general error, which was untraceable in the logs using the guid.
I then did a remove-spsite, followed by a new-spsite (without specifying the template) and then imported the template into the soultion explorer and attempted to assign to the site using the gui. I also recevied the same generic error. In the ULS Logs I keep seeing the following error message: The element of type 'ListInstance' for feature 'template_projectlistListInstances' (id: 1a54f690-78aa-47f1-beee-b517a80bc18b) threw an exception during activation: The formula contains a syntax error or is not supported.
If the template would not have included the content types (and they are now lost), is there any way to pull them from my content database manually?
Anyone have any insight into my pain?
