Reorder templates on the template selection page

  Asked By: Dario    Date: Nov 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1517

Is it possible to reorder the template list on the template selection
page, and if so, how would you do this?

I have a site defintion with a corresponding webtempxxx.xml file that
lists each configuration that I would like to see with a
HIDDEN="FALSE" attribute. I can't get the MPS definitions to work, so
I am using those templates from the original WEBTEMP.XML file.

Unfortunately, the templates from WEBTEMP.XML appear first in the
template selection list (I am guessing because it reads the WEBTEMP
files in alphabetiical order).

Is there a way to allow my configurations to show on top or first that
are listed in the WEBTEMPxxx.XML file?

I believe it lists them in numeric order  by their IDs in the Templates
element. To list  yours first, I would think you would have to change
the IDs associated with the default templates  to higher numbers and
change yours to be 1, 2, 3, etc. There may be implications with changing
the default assigned ID numbers.
