How to View & Manually Edit the Contents of an .stp Manifest Template File for SharePoint

by on August 5, 2011
  1. Copy and rename the customfile.stp file extension to customfile.cab
  2. Extract contents (I used WinRar)
  3. Open the manifest.xml file in an editor (Visual Studio, Notepad, Dreamweaver,etc.)
  4. Edit the Manifest.xml file as desired
  5. Using the Command Prompt, navigate to the directory/folder containing the edited manifest file (using “cd directoryname)
  6. type the following command substituting your desired file names
    • makecab.exe manifest.xml mytemplatename.stp
  7. The cab should now appear in the folder
  8. Rename the .cab to .stp
  9. Upload template to SharePoint

 

Do not change the template ID as this refers to the type of site template it is: Example: 1 = STS (SharePoint Team Site) – “windows SharePoint Services Site”, “Team Site”, “Blank Site”, “Document Workspace”

Template ID Reference: http://www.shareesblog.com/?p=234
