Caution noteCaution

Be careful about calling this method within a website provisioning callback function. If you call this method inside a provisioning callback that is defined within the same site definition configuration that is being applied, you can cause an infinite loop. Instead, create two similar site definition configurations within the site definition, one that is visible and one that is hidden. The visible configuration can then contain a provisioning assembly callback that applies the hidden configuration to websites.
