How to find what template is the Sharepoint site using

Posted: August 14, 2011 in sharepoint 2007, Site Template

I found a very great post by Mr. Praveen Battula, thought of sharing it.

To find the template of the site – Go to Site Actions – Site Settings,  save the site as site template[.STP extension] to the local drive. Now navigate to that location and rename the file to .CAB extension. Extract the CAB file and find the manifest.xml file, in the file check for the TemplateID string and note the string. That string will be template name
