Convert site to site template

  Asked By: Anushka    Date: Jan 27    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2195

I've been building up a site that I want to turn into a site template. I've
tried this using the web interface and it only appears as a template within that
site collection.

Is there an easy/straightforward way of taking a site and turning it into a
global site template, or does it involve complex steps like packaging it up,
writing XML files, etc?

I think you can do this via stsadm -o addtemplate..
It should add the template  globally (on that server) to all web  apps...
Someone else please correct me if I am mistaken.

Here are the steps:

1) Save the site  as a template

2) Go to the site collection  site template  gallery and save out the
template as an STP file.

3) Use STSADM -o addtemplate to add that STP file to the global
site gallery. (stsadm -help addtemplate will give you the usage)
