Using exported Portal Template in DotNetNuke

Scott McCulloch  has a nice article “Exporting And Importing DotNetNuke Portals”.

I want to add that exported portal can be used to replace existing portal using Wizard.

It also can be used as a default portal by changing InstallDotNetNuke.install.config file by specifying

 <portals> <portal><templatefile>NewPortal.template</templatefile>

It is assumed that NewPortal.template and NewPortal.template.resources files are located in Portals_default folder.
