Activate Site Directory in Sharepoint Server 2010
If you are playing with enterprise features of Sharepoint 2010 you have probably noticed that Site Directory template is missing. Site directory has been intentionally hidden because of compatibility issues with upgrade process between 2007 and 2010.
If you want to "enable it" simply follow these steps.
- Browse to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\1033\XML
- Open webtempsps.xml
- Find section for Site Directory and change Hidden value
<Template Name="SPSSITES" ID="34">
<Configuration ID="0" Title="Site Directory" Type="0" Hidden="FALSE" ImageUrl="/_layouts/1033/images/template_site_dir.png" Description="A site for listing and categorizing important sites in your organization. It includes different views for categorized sites, top sites, and a site map." DisplayCategory="Enterprise" VisibilityFeatureDependency="5F3B0127-2F1D-4cfd-8DD2-85AD1FB00BFC">
- After that open command prompt and browse to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN
- Run following command:
stsadm.exe -o activatefeature -id 5F3B0127-2F1D-4cfd-8DD2-85AD1FB00BFC –url http://yoursite
After that go to your site URL and create new site and you'll see "Site Directory"
