Site Template Identification - backwards?

  Asked By: Jackie    Date: Aug 25    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 624

My team and I are trying to figure out how to identify a site template
well after it has been created. Is there a way to identify which
template was used? How does this work?

I know of no method for doing this. The original template  is just a starting
point for the creation of a Site. Once created  any number of Lists,
Libraries, features and additional sites could be added to it. You could
start with a blank site  template and by the time you are done, have a site
that looked as if you created it with the Collaboration template.

Actually, you could 'save site  as template', open the .stp file with
winzip, and look in the xml file. It will list the originating site
definition. There was a thread on this a while back, but I only have
email at the moment.
