SharePoint site template reference

When working with SharePoint data from STSADM operations, PowerShell cmdlets or when programming against the SharePoint object model it won’t be long until you need to deal with the internal names for site templates.

I’ve pulled together the default templates that are installed with SharePoint 2010 and 2007 in the following reference:

Other than the native site templates there are also a few others which I’ve frequently encountered in SharePoint environments.

Microsoft Project Server integrates with SharePoint and creates sites based on the Project Workspace (PWS#0) template.

And finally… after the release of WSS 3.0 Microsoft made available a number of additional templates called the Fabulous 40 Application Templates.
