- Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007
Consider the following scenario. You change an existing Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 site. You save the updated SharePoint Server 2007 site as a template. Then, you try to use this template to create a new SharePoint Server 2007 site.
In this scenario, when you click Save Site as Template under Look and Feel on the Site Settings page, you receive the following error message:
Additionally, the template is not saved.
This issue occurs if the top-level SharePoint Server 2007 site of the SharePoint Server 2007 site that you are trying to save as a template has the publishing features turned on. In this case, Save Site as Template appears under Look and Feel on the Site Settings page.
To work around this issue, open the Feature.xml file of the Publishing feature. Then, manually add a new ElementManifest. For example, add the following element.
Then, create a new MyHideAction.xml file in the same directory by using the following content.
<Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/"> <HideCustomAction Id="HideSaveAsTemplate" HideActionId="SaveAsTemplate" GroupId="Customization" Location="Microsoft.SharePoint.SiteSettings" /> </Elements>
For more information about the Feature.xml file, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
