I have created a web template using visual studio 2010, it has two features.
Feature1 - Contains WebTemplate element (scoped site) Feature2 - Contains List Definitions (scoped web)
I package, upload and activate the wsp file to the solution gallery.
I the click 'Site Action' > 'Create New Site'. I choose my custom site (as defined in the web template) and click Create. This causes an error (I get a generic error with some GUID).
Workaround - If i go into the Site Features and activate Feature2 and the do the above step everything works fine (i dont want to do this because all lists are created in the root).
Why is this?
