Save site template missing in SharePoint Online and Office 365

So by now you've noticed that they've removed the site command "Save site as template"  in SharePoint Online and you don't know what to do.

1. Make sure you're not trying to make a template from a publishing site.  SharePoint has difficulty creating site templates from publishing sites.

2. Browse to https://mytenant.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/savetmpl.aspx and save your template as always.

3. I'm not sure how long this method will work, but I'm sure an app could handle this no problem.
