I have created a SharePoint site collection on SharePoint server 2013. I have create a number of sub sites and for each of those sub sites I have created a template.

The purpose of the templates is to create a site exactly like the site above, same colour, formatting etc.

The templates were created by the site admin, but when a user with 'full access' permissions (not a site admin) tries to create a site using those templates, they get the following error message:

'Sorry, this site hasn't been shared with you...'

However, they can create sites without using those templates.

The question is, how do I enable these admin users to create sites with these templates?

    are they able to access layouts pages ? like /_layouts/15/viewlsts.aspx or /_layouts/15/settings.aspx on the newly created sites ? – Gautam Sheth Jan 31 '17 at 17:52
