Unfortunately it is not possible to change the site template after you create the site. In some cases you can manually change things to make something look like something else, but the underlying site will still be based off of the original site template. If you chose a Document Center and don't like it and want to switch to a Team Site template you will ...

Open you Team Site in SharePoint Designer 2013. In SharePoint Designer, under Sites tab select “Site Options” Find SaveSiteAsTemplateEnabled in Site Properties set to "true".

On your site, view the source of the start page (ctrl + U) and search for JavaScript variable g_wsaSiteTemplateId. You'll get the Template ID like this var g_wsaSiteTemplateId = 'STS#0'; Then just find what template that is in the list presented in the article SharePoint 2013 Site Template ID

A Site Template is essentially a WebTemplate, just pre-packaged. It's NOT a Site Definition. If you would like to distribute it "globally" in your farm, crack the WSP open and edit the Feature and set the scope to Farm (instead of Site). (Quck and dirty solution) Even better is to crate a Web Template of your own and copy and paste pieces from the Site ...

Web Template: Web template refers to new feature element available in SharePoint 2010, which provides us flexible way to define definition (onet.xml file), which will be used only on provisioning time, when the site is created.

The most highly praised, probably the most widely used, and personally my favourite SharePoint dev tool ever created is possibly your best solution to this. WSPBuilder: http://wspbuilder.codeplex.com/ You'd need to reorganise your folder structure of the WSP into what WSPbuilder expects, but this is probably your fastest way to do this. We have recreated ...

Are you running SharePoint 2010? If so, you can include your scripts using a feature: it is now possible to have a CustomAction with ScriptLink as a location. This will leave the masterpage unmodified while at the same time making jQuery (and any other scripts you need) available across the entire site collection. More information is in Deploying and Using ...

This issue most frequently occurs because the Community Sites or the SharePoint Server Publishing feature is currently enabled or was previously enabled for the affected site.

By default, if you enabled the SharePoint publishing feature in root site, then there is no “save the site as template” option in site settings. There is a workaround. You could save the site as template in the site which is enabled SharePoint publishing feature the by accessing the URL below. https://yourtenantname.sharepoint.com/sites/rootsite/subsite/...

The SharePoint 2010 site template has two functions. Firstly to replace the old .stp files from MOSS which were used to create new sites from a template (and did not support publishing sites). Secondly as a starting point for development by importing them into Visual Studio. They seem to do the first job adequately, at least as well as the old .stp files. ...

It really depends what page you are talking about (master page, .aspx page, etc.), but you can add your script references in a Content Editor Web Part (CEWP) if you don't want to customize your pages.

Credit to KolbyH at the MSDN forums for pointing me in the right direction here.

I haven't tested this, but I would think you can add it with a javascript maybe. You already have the _spPageContextInfo on your sites. <script type="text/javascript"> document.write('<a href=\"'+_spPageContextInfo.webServerRelativeUrl+'/page.aspx\">link</a>'); </script> That's just an example, probably not the best way to add js ...

As each my "mysite" is a new site collection using a Microsoft Site Definition, there is no no-code solution for automatically adding web parts to a page. (Well there is one no-code solution: Someone could sit in central administration add refresh the list of "mysites" and when he sees a new one he could log in and add the web parts, but I think that after a ...

rjcup, Your client is likely not the right entity to ask what solution is best. If you're the developer, then you should know best and if your client doesn't trust your judgement, then your client has a problem much greater than how to get something done. If that client knows more about SharePoint than you do, then you have a quite different problem as well....

If your final goal is migration to SharePoint Online (SPOL) you definately need to think this into your branding approach. WebTemplates were our choice for SharePoint 2010 on-premises solutions, since they have a much better upgrade story than custom site definitions. We have also long ago dropped the declarative approach for other artifacts and for ...
