  • Hello,

    Where did the new site template come from? Those features are referenced in the site template but not installed on the current farm..

  • Thanks for replying. This site template was created by myself. I have a complete layout site and then save it as the template. When I create a new subsite, I just choose the custom template. Then the problem happened. So, do you mean I should have some setting in the farm?

    Thanks again!

  • No problem, is this for a Project Server Project site or a SharePoint site (non Project Serve related)?

  •  I have the integrated Project server and SharePoint server. My system works like this: I have a project created from Project Pro and then published to PWA. I have 12 sub-project which published as sub-site of the Project site. I modified the layout and content type of one site and then save it as the template. I intend to use this template to create those 12 sub-site. Originally, I created subproject in Project Pro and then publish it to PWA. I thought it would use the template to create the site, but it was not even though I already did necessary setting in Central Admin and PWA setting. This is my original plan. It failed anyway, so I changed to another method. I simply created a subsite from the sharepoint site content and wanted to test if the template works or not. It did not work, either and got the above error message. Sorry, I'm not sure if I explain my situation clearly.

    Please let me know if you confuse about anything.

  • It sounds like you are not using a valid Project Site template to start with, create a new site based on the Project Site template, modify that then save that as a template and associate to the correct EPT/s.
