I am able to save a list as a template and it shows up in the list template gallery with an empty title, Product Version, and Feature ID. the language column shows up as 1033 instead of English.

I can edit the template and enter a title.

When I go to create a new list out of the saved list template I cannot find my list template.

enter image description here

Any ideas?

I find it strange that that the feature id is missing on the new list template.

Did you ever find a solution to this? I'm having the exact same problem on all of my list templates, and can't figure out what's wrong. – Josh Rogan Nov 8 '12 at 15:26
Is the target site the same language and the same template of the site where you created the list template? – banana Jun 30 '13 at 8:56

I would suggest when you create a list template , provide a title same as the title of the list. Once it shows up in the list template gallery , try to create a new list now and check if the name comes up this time.

I did what you suggested and I still cannot see the list template when I go to create a new list – i.jk Feb 29 '12 at 21:16

Best Bet is to first get rid of any previous version of this template, the resave list as template and see if it shows up.

i had the same issue and this one worked for me:

Use PowerShell to enable the 'ParserEnabled' property for the web site

$web = Get-SPWeb <url of web>
$web.ParserEnabled = $true
