I'm trying to create a new type of site. When I'm creating a new one, only appears 1 type in the select: "Collaboration Site". I wish to add more options. For example "Custom Site", and for that site to have predefined pages and dashboard.
I saw a parcial solution but I don't want to modify existent files from Alfresco, instead I want to add my own files(xml, js, etc) or something else, but not modifying anything.
Since Alfresco 4.2 you can use the Surf Extension Module feature to customise the "Create Site" dialog to add additional site presets without having to touch / override the original files from Alfresco. The general approach is documented on docs.alfresco.com. For a modification of the"Create Site" dialog you will have to target the org/alfresco/modules/create-site.get.js web script controller (which previously you would have to override).
I did exactly that, and nothing happened. I edited org/alfresco/modules/create-site.get.js, even I cleaned it entirely and nothing changed. I did the same thing in create-site.get.html.ftl and nothing. I don't know what is happening. The steps in the GUI are simple: Menu Sites/Create Site/ and the dialog appears as always, with just one type in the html select. I restarted Alfresco a lot of times. I'm using Alfresco 5.2 but I don't think that's the cause.
