Hello all,

I have been working on a site in a development environment and saved the site as a template. I uploaded the .stp file on the productioin site in the site templaes. I also grabbed the associated css, images, and masterpage then placed it on the production site approiate folder. I'm getting an error when I use the template.

Error
The resource cannot be found.
Description: HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for (or one of its dependencies) could have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.  Please review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

I found out it was the masterpage. Are there better ways to package a site template?

Thanks in advance.

My Friend,
I am afraid there are only two ways:
1. The way you tried(already)
2. Custom. Start using your brain in creating a custom site definition. You will need to build every part individually. You can take the help of powershell to create list/libraries for you. For UI related part, you need to build masterpage,css, images, pagelayouts etc. to be deployed.

Mark as answer if it helped.
Enjoy!!
