looks like I have not posted my question right.

I want to be able to save an Area as a template  so that I could use
it to create  future Area using the same template.

I tried all these post:

I am sure people have been very sucessful in saving an Area as a
template.

Did you issue a IISRESET on the server after making changes to the XML
files?

 
Answer #3    Answered By: Ian Davis     Answered On: Sep 11

I did restart the IIS and then also went ahead and restarted the Server, but no
luck.

I could find only the default seven Area templates in the template  section.

were you sucessful with the same.

 
Answer #4    Answered By: Jagjit Hui     Answered On: Sep 11

The solution is to change the value of


_locID@Title="webtemp_title_spscommu0"

_locID@Description="webtemp_desc_spscommu0"



To something like

_locID@Title="webtemp_title_spsmcwevents0"

_locID@Description="webtemp_desc_spsmcwevents0"

Just issue IISRESET, no need to restart the server

 
Answer #5    Answered By: Alton Vance     Answered On: Sep 11

Thanks a ton it did work, now I need to figure out how to add some webparts to
this template.

is it rightly mentioned in the MSD2D document?

 
Answer #6    Answered By: Sydney Lewis     Answered On: Sep 11

This gets more complicated, you need to change onet.xml file stored
under the XML folder of your template

Modify the tag <module> <file url="default"> and add a line for each web
part

<AllUsersWebPart ...../> your web part information </AllUsersWebParT>

The best way is to export your web part and copy the web part definition
file

 
Answer #7    Answered By: Jayme Raymond     Answered On: Sep 11

Yes Indeed this is getting more complicated, looks like I am getting lost....

I know I am asking for more, but could I have a small example of how to go about
this?

I have never worked with this ONET.XML file...
