I have created a custom site template and saved it on my desktop. i want to use this template as a standard template when creating Site collection by powershell code. How to save this template the template library on the farm to be able to use it.

i run this powershell to create site collection.

$Template = "BLANKINTERNET#0"

 New-SPSite -Url $url –ContentDatabase $ContentDatabase -Name $WebsiteName 
 Description $WebsiteDesc -Template $Template -OwnerAlias $PrimaryLogin

i want to change the template to my own created template, with other words, i want to be able to save my template on the farm/server and give it a name to be usable in all sitecollection creations.

  • once you add this in the farm( add-spsoution & install) then it will be available under the Custom heading of template selection. – Waqas Sarwar MVP Oct 18 '14 at 8:14
  • Yeah, but isnt it possible to add this custom template under Collabration, Entreprise eller publishing heading ?? – Bahaa Oct 18 '14 at 8:39

You have to deploy the Solution package(wsp) into the farm and activate it and then that template will show under the custom tab of the template section.

you can import a WSP file directly into Visual Studio 2010, edit it, and create a new solution that does work.
