Add templates to the gallery

If you think other people might like to use your site's design, add it to the Template gallery. When people create a new site, they can use your template as a starting point. Just keep in mind that anyone who uses Google Sites will see your template once you submit it to the gallery. (Or if you're using Google Apps with your own domain, only other people in your domain will see your template.)

  1. Go to the site you want to add as a template.
  2. Click the More actions button at the top right of the page, then choose Manage Site (you'll need to be signed in to see this option).
  3. Click General at the left side of the page, scroll down, and click Publish this site as a template. (If this link isn't available, then templates have been disabled for your domain and you can't use this feature.)
  4. A form appears where you can name your template and add a description of what it might be used to achieve. Optionally place your template in up to two categories (if available). Just choose a category from each of the Select a category lists.
  5. Click Submit template.

The template appears in the gallery with the name and description you gave it.
