How to determine your list template

How to determine your list template

Previously I blogged about site templates types but I thought it might also be useful to find the list template types.

  1. Navigate to the list and view the all items view. Each list is different but all lists come with an all items view by default. However in publihsing sites there is a Pages Library which is typically found at http://ServerName/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx, and for the Images images library it will be – http://ServerName/PublishingImages/Forms/AllItems.aspx
  2. In the browser go to View, Source and search for “ctx.listTemplate”.
    The Pages Library it will show – “ctx.listTemplate = 850;” and the Images library it will show “ctx.listTemplate = 101;”).

For other template types you will need to look up the list ID so here’s a list.
