Created new site using the site template and now custom columns and content types are missing? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a site with custom columns and custom content type in sharepoint 2007. Then I created a site template and created a new site on different server.

    Now I need the custom columns and content types on the new site. I need to create some new libraries on the new site using them. But I didn't find them. Can someone has a solution for this.

  • No you can't, it's only sub-site level.

    For what you're after I'd suggest creating a site definition in Visual Studio that includes everything you need, or if that's a bit overkill, you can look at creating a WSP that contains all your columns.  These can then be activated on a site / site collection level (depending upon the scoping) independant of any template.
