MOSS Site Template (.stp) files are no longer supported in SharePoint 2010. So how do you import .stp files?
Isha Kapoor's blog post describes these steps:
- First you need to create a site in SharePoint 2007 using your .stp template.
- Then, backup the database for that site and restore it on SharePoint 2010 environment.
- After you do that just open up the site and fix any issues (like 12 hive referencing files etc).
- Now, you can Save this Site (from Settings page -> Save as Template) and it will give you a .wsp solution for the site.
Anyone has any better solution?
