In SP 2010, The default Publishing Portal template comes with publishing workflow activated. How can I create a new site collection which is equivalent to "Publishing Site" (without workflow)?

I know that there is option to create a site with/without workflow. I am looking for Site Collection.

In case you are not SharePoint Developer for Custome Site collection template usage, you can disable Publishing Approval Workflow feature of Publishing template.

You can do the following steps:

  1. Open your new Publishing site.
  2. Click Site Actions > Site Settings > Site collection features (under Site Collection Administrator)
  3. Deactivate Publishing Approval Workflow feature.



I know only one way - create site collection by code, where you can set site code. How to get code of all templates: http://toreinarsolli.wordpress.com/2010/10/21/sharepoint-2010-using-custom-site-template-in-code/
