The “Search Center with Tabs” template is not available in SharePoint Server 2007

 

When you create a source variation label in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, the “Search Center with Tabs” template is not available as a feature that you can use in the source.

This problem occurs when you use SharePoint Server 2007 to support multilingual Web sites.


CAUSE

This problem occurs because of a missing attribute in the Webtemp*.xml file that defines the Web site.

Note In the name of the Webtemp*.xml file, the asterisk (*) is a placeholder for a suffix that may be a part of the file name. For example, if you install Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server, the file is named the Webtempsps.xml file. Typically, the Webtemp*.xml file is located in the following folder:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\1033\XML


RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, add the attribute in the Webtemp*.xml file that defines the Web site. To do this, follow these steps:

1. In Notepad, open the Webtemp*.xml file that defines the Web site.
2. In the body of the file, add the following attribute:

FilterCategories=”PublishingSiteTemplate”

3. Save the file, and then exit Notepad.
