I have a sharepoint 2010 portal and I would like to create a new web template. The site template is a publishing template. When I click on new site I see the home page. I would like to add the calendar webpart or list, but I cannot find it in the webparts or lists. Is this because I have used the publising site template? Do I need to use explicit another site template where the calendar webpart or list is available?
Activate following features in site settings will let you create a calender list which will be displayed as webpart you might need to change view but I didn't needed to,
