An interesting revelation about publishing…

December 29th, 2006 by Dor

Sites that have the publishing feature active - can’t be saved as templates. This option simply dissappears from the site administration page when the feature is turned on.

You can get to the “Save As Template” web page by appending the page’s address (”/_layouts…”) to the site’s URL, however this action is unsupported and sites restored from the saved template might be broken.

If you’d like to migrate a site that uses the publishing feature, use STSADM or SharePoint Designer’s import/export abilities. And if you don’t need publishing - don’t turn it on.

Hope this will be resolved in a hotfix….
