I am having a site with publishing feature enabled. So "Save site as a template" feature is not available for me. Since I don't have control over the SP server farm, I am not sure about how I can create a WSP package for my SharePoint 2010 site. Is it possible to do with SP Designer 2010?

Thank you for your help. Exporting site as a template and importing it to visual studio will generate complete site deployment package.Here I wanted to go for selective pages and lists only. Is there any way we can do? Thanks, – user17091 May 21 '13 at 10:37
