How to find the template name of SharePoint site?


 

Sometimes if the SharePoint site is too customized it becomes hard to get the info abut the template used for it.

Here is a sample code and steps which would help us to get the info about the template used.

<%@ Assembly Name="Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=12.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c"%>
<%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/_layouts/application.master" Inherits="Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls.LayoutsPageBase" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint" %>
<script runat="server">
protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e){
SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(delegate()
{
using (SPWeb thisWeb = this.Web)
{
lblWebTempalte.Text = thisWeb.WebTemplate;
lblWebTemplateID.Text = thisWeb.WebTemplateId.ToString();
}
});
}
</script>
<asp:Content ID="Main" runat="server" contentplaceholderid="PlaceHolderMain" >
<p>
Web Template: <asp:Label ID="lblWebTempalte" runat="server" />
</p>
Web Template ID: <asp:Label ID="lblWebTemplateID" runat="server" />
</asp:Content>
<asp:Content ID="PageTitle" runat="server" contentplaceholderid="PlaceHolderPageTitle" >
Site Template Information
</asp:Content>
<asp:Content ID="PageTitleInTitleArea" runat="server" contentplaceholderid="PlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea" >
Site Template Information
</asp:Content>

 

  • Save the code snippet code as .aspx page ( eg:webtemplate.aspx) to your layouts folder (usually C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS)
  • Once the page is saved you can access it from any of your SharePoint sites via http://servername/_layouts/webtemplate.aspx
