Subsites

Expression Studio 4.0

A site can contain one or more subsites. A subsite is a site that is nested inside another site. A site that contains subsites is called a top-level site. If you think of a site as a directory containing a set of folders, a subsite is a subfolder containing a stand-alone site.

Subsites have independent administration, authoring, and browsing permissions. Therefore, you can display restricted information or information that is pertinent to only one group of site visitors on a subsite.

Caution noteWarning

Some site settings can be lost when converting a subfolder to a site or converting a subsite to a subfolder, including, but not limited to hyperlinks in navigation bars and tasks associated with these pages. These features are lost because the navigation structure and tasks are stored per site.

To convert a subfolder to a subsite

You can convert folders under a top-level site to subsites.

  1. In the Folder List, right-click the folder you want to convert to a subsite.

    If the Folder List is hidden, on the View menu, click Folder List.

  2. Click Convert to Subsite on the shortcut menu.

NoteNote

The larger the contents of the folder, the longer it takes to convert the folder to a site.
