  • Well, publishing sites in SharePoint has much more than just the publishing feature. It includes special webparts to the masterpage and a unique hierarchy of form pages. So, Custom Team Site template will not work with publishing site.

    If you like to have this running the n i will suggest to create the site definitions. Site definitions have so many advantages over templates or follow below article to create Publishing web template :
