I've applied a custom web template in a site.

How to retrieve the template title based on site url in c#?

FYI: My Custom Web Template name is "{guid}#MyNewTemplate" and title is "MyNewTemplate", basically it is a team site.

Note: I've also checked related questions in StackExchange but none worked for me to get the desired result, mostly it returns 'team site' title rather than my custom web template title

I would like to find the custom web template title. Please Help me out here



You can use either;


to get the Web Template name, or;


to get the Web Template ID

See the properties exposed by the SPWeb object on MSDN

  • Thanks for your reply. According to your suggestion, I will be getting only "STS#0" which is my basetemplate details. But I'm looking for custom template name and title. – SPUser Feb 18 '16 at 15:28
  • This will give you the custom template name and title? "STS#0" is the template for a team site – George Grainger Feb 18 '16 at 15:37
