Site Templates ID in SharePoint 2010

Have found the need of SharePoint Site Templates codes a lot these days while using scripts to create Sites, or restoring a site to a new Site Collection as with SharePoint 2007 you can use a blank template to restore a site which was originally created using some other site template but with SharePoint 2010 you will have to create the site using the same template as the original one to be able to successfully restore the site.

Note: To quickly get a list of SharePoint templates you can even use the Get-SPWebTemplate CMDLet.

Also few of the templates are marked as obsolete i.e the old Records Center template (OFFILE#0) i would suggest you to use the new template is possible while creating a Records center which is [OFFILE#1].

Check the below table for the list of Template & their respective Codes with a brief description.
