So, you may be asking…(for example), where the hell did I get STS#0 from? The answer is pretty easy…
STS = Site Template Name
#0 = Site Template Configuration number.
If you go to your SharePoint 12 hive (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12) and look at the template folder (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\1033\XML) you’ll see a list of XML files which tell SharePoint what templates are available to it. Crack open WEBTEMP.XML and take a look and you’ll see all the WSS templates that are available to you.
Here is a snippet of the XML that tells SharePoint about team sites and its various configurations..
<Template Name="STS" ID="1">
<Configuration ID="0" Title="Team Site" Hidden="FALSE" ImageUrl="/_layouts/images/stsprev.png"
Description="A site for teams to quickly organize, author, and share information. It provides a document library, and lists for managing announcements, calendar items, tasks, and discussions."
<Configuration ID="1" Title="Blank Site" Hidden="FALSE" ImageUrl="/_layouts/images/blankprev.png"
Description="A blank site for you to customize based on your requirements."
<Configuration ID="2" Title="Document Workspace" Hidden="FALSE" ImageUrl="/_layouts/images/dwsprev.png"
Description="A site for colleagues to work together on a document. It provides a document library for storing the primary document and supporting files, a tasks list for assigning to-do items, and a links list for resources related to the document."
Now if you check back to my list above, I’m sure you can see now how you get STS#0, STS#1 and STS#2.
*** I’ll try and do a SharePoint 2010 comparison to this list above pretty soon.
