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 the Google Admin console.
  2. Click Google Apps > Sites. Where is it?
  3. Click Templates.
  4. Uncheck Enable custom templates and click Save Changes.

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 re-check this option.
