I know that SPWeb have "WebTemplate" property and it always gives me string like "STS" or "MPS", but what I need is something like "STS#1". There is also "WebTemplateId" property, it gives WebTemplate Enumeration, which isn't useful for me.

  • This approach doesn't work correctly because "WebTemplateId" property returns the same value (1) for Team Site, Blank Site and Document Workspace. Dec 1, 2011 at 14:29
  • Ok, it seems that my answer was wrong. I updated it with the one from Alexander. Thank's Alexander!

You can get WebTemplate and Configuration properties, then use string.format("{0}#{1}", web.WebTemplate, web.Configuration ).
