Well established Templates Directory Website, 10 Years Old

Why does content types on sites/libraries contains old document templates?

We are using SharePoint 2013 and have setup a Content Type Hub where we publish content types with attached document templates.

When republishing content types with document templates on them, we started have problems with content databases size growing drastically.

Content database was 400 GB and grew to 800 GB and 2 days later 1400 GB, which of course was alarming.

After some digging we found that by manually republishing the same content type a couple of times, had made one of the content types document templates on all sites to be placed in the recycle bin. When checking one of the libraries that inherited the content type and looking into the forms folder, we found that that content type had 18 document templates attached to it, but only one active, the latest one.

A couple of thousand sub-sites, and the content type had 18 document templates in the sub-sites document libraries forms folder. Which meant that 700.000 document templates was placed in the site collection recycle bin.

The question is now. Why is old inactive document templates saved in published content types? And is it safe to remove them from the CTH _CTS folder before we republish the CT next time, as they are no longer in use by the content type, and can’t be reverted to. Is there a reason why they are keeping old document templates attached to content types?

Display templates, managed properties showing null

In Sharepoint Online,trying to display one site collection list columns in another site collection using search and dispaly templates List:/sites/UAT/Lists/SearchTestList/AllItems.aspx enter image description here

1.Mapped the crawled properties with managed properties in both the site collections enter image description here same mapping in /sites/UAT and /sites/Classic

2.Created a basic search center in /Sites/Classic and through query rules I am able to get the results

enter image description here

=>In Item_Default display template , I have added these Properties as ‘RefinableString148′:’RefinableString148′,’RefinableString149′:’RefinableString149′,’RefinableString150′:’RefinableString150’

=>In display templates, I am displaying as below

 <ul> <li>    _#= ctx.CurrentItem.RefinableString148 =#_ </li> <li>    _#= ctx.CurrentItem.RefinableString149 =#_ </li> <li>    _#= ctx.CurrentItem.RefinableString150 =#_ </li> <li>    _#= ctx.CurrentItem.Title =#_ </li> <li>    _#= ctx.CurrentItem.LastModifiedTime =#_ </li> </ul> 

But the output is only displaying Title and LastModifiedTime of items enter image description here

But the same properties are showing in Refiners enter image description here

Am I missing anything or doing anything wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

Update / Deleting Custom Site Templates

I have created a custom site template in sharepoint online using the modern experience. However, there have been changes made that would impact future sites created with that template. Is there a way i can update the site template to accommodate the changes i have made?

Otherwise, if i delete the site template, will it delete the sites i created using said template? It would work just as well for me if i could delete the template, whilst retaining the sites utilizing it, and create a new template based on the changes I’ve made.


Opening content type templates in Word Desktop does not work if browser is not IE

I have a template attached to a library as a content type. Despite having all settings pointing to ‘open in Word’ and not ‘Open in browser’ when in a different browser than IE the file will be opened in the browser. This content type has metadata columns that are mandatory which are not filled in if opened in the browser. This is not user friendly because most people do not see the difference between browser and client and will bypass the mandatory metadata.

Is there a solution?
