Some basic information about activating features in the onet.xml can be found on the MSDN site.
So the general format is something like this
<Feature Id = “Text” SourceVersion = “Text”>
Also SourceVersion hasn’t been documented very well. Source Version is the version of the feature that you would like to activate. In general I leave the version away so that the latest version of the feature will be activated.
So you could add something like this to your onet.xml:
<!– Office SharePoint Server Publishing –>
I’ve always thought that relying on a comment in order to make it clearer what each feature does is a bit uggly.
Since i’ve enabled Intellisense in my VS2010 environment I discovered the following Name option:
<Feature ID=”4ed36276-5dcc-4c1a-89b0-209de9477b1f” Name=”My Feature” />
At last my list of active features is a lot clearer and shorter.
This option doesn’t seem to be documented on msdn unfortunately, but I’ve really started to like it.
