Saving a SharePoint 2013 Publishing Site as a Template

If you come across this article from Microsoft: you will get the impression that you CANNOT save a Publishing site as a template.

In fact, several other workarounds such as browsing directly to the /_layouts/15/savetmpl.aspx Url or attempting to change the SaveSiteAsTemplateEnabled through SharePoint Designer will not work!

Fortunately, Microsoft has offered an alternative workaround through using PowerShell as described in this article:

After you run the PowerShell script, you will STILL not be able to save the site as a template from the Site Settings menu, but you can then successfully browse to the  /_layouts/15/savetmpl.aspx Url to save the Publishing Site as a template!
