Enable or disable templates

This feature is not available in the legacy free edition of Google Apps.

If you prefer to not use Sites templates in your domain, disable the Templates feature altogether:

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console dashboard, go to Appsand thenGoogle Appsand thenSites.
  3. Click Templates.
  4. Turn off Enable custom templates and click Save.

When users create a site, they no longer see any templates to choose from. In addition, the Publish site as a template option is no longer available on any site's Manage Site > General page.

To make templates available again (including any templates that were previously published in your domain's private gallery), just turn this option back on.
