Custom list templates do not appear on the "Create Page" page of a SharePoint site

SharePoint 2007

Updated: April 14, 2008

Applies To: Office SharePoint Server 2007

You create a custom list template in a site and you add the custom list template to the template gallery of another site, but the custom list template does not appear on the Create Page page of the other site. As a result, you cannot use the custom list template to create a new list on the other site.

This problem can occur if you create the custom list template in a site that has a different site definition identifier (ID) than the site that you added the template to. For example, this problem might occur if any one of the following conditions is true:

  • You create a custom list template in a Office SharePoint Server 2007 site, and then you import the template to a portal site.

  • You create a custom list template in a portal site, and then you import the template to a Office SharePoint Server 2007 site.

  • You create a custom list template in a Office SharePoint Server 2007 site, and then you import the template to another Office SharePoint Server site that uses a different site definition ID.

Create the custom list template in the Office SharePoint Server 2007 site or in the portal site where the template will be used. For example, if Office SharePoint Server 2007 sites that are based on the Team Site template require a custom survey template, create the custom survey template in a site that is based on the Team Site template.
