In your web template's Elements.xml file set DisplayCategory:

<WebTemplate  Name="CustomProjectTemplate"
                Title="Custom Project Site"
                DisplayCategory="Custom Templates"
  • after adding this ,under Custom Templates how we can add our custom templates like template1,template2. Then when i have to create a new site under Custom templates template1,template2. it should display.

  • How are you creating your site templates? Visual Studio? Commented Apr 26, 2016 at 10:50
  • I typically create new site templates by customizing an existing site and saving it as a template. You can then further customize the donloaded content of the .wsp (that is in fact a .cab), then re-package it and upload the customized version. See the descritption of a (partly) automated process described here: pholpar.wordpress.com/2015/04/08/…
