Save site as template in SharePoint 2013




In this article we will discuss how to save site as a template in SharePoint 2013. You can also check out my previous articles on SharePoint 2013 boundaries and limits, New web parts in SharePoint 2013.

Step-1:
Open the site and go to Site settings. Then go to Site Actions.

From the Site Actions sections select Save site as template.

Step-2:
This will open the Save site as template page.

There give the file name, Template name, Template description. If you want to include the content of the list then check the check box "Include Content".

Then click on OK, then it will show the Operation Completed Successfully message.

Now check the solution gallery the template will be available there.

Some Points to remember here:
- In SharePoint 2013, no more .stp file, the template will be saved in extension as .wsp.

- Not possible to save site as template for publishing site or publishing feature enabled sites.

Hi,

How come when you save a site as a template and then create a new site from that template the "Change the Look" page does not work anymore for the newly created site?
