6. For Navigation, you have the option to have this new site appear as a link on the parent
site’s Quick Launch bar and top link bar. Adding the links lets people who go to the main
site easily move to the HR team site. Selecting No for both will not place the link on the
Quick Launch bar or top link bar, but people can still get to the new site by using View
All Site Content on the main page or by entering the URL directly in their web browser
(http://sp2/HRteam/). Set both of these options to Yes so users can easily visit the HR
team site from the top-level site.
7. The Navigation Inheritance option sets the new site’s top link bar to be the same as the
parent site’s. This is not always a good idea; it really depends on the new site’s intended use.
Consider your new site’s role and whether the top-level site’s top link bar is appropriate.
Choosing No will give the new site a new top link bar, with a default Home link that goes
to the top page of the new subsite (and not the parent site). This means there won’t be an
easy way to get back to the parent site from the subsite’s home page, but that makes users
focus on this site. Choosing Yes will mean this site won’t have its own bar; it will use the
bar from the parent site (in which case the Home link goes to the parent site). Leave this
option set to the default No. When you have finished with your settings, click Create .
That’s it! You now have a new site for human resources, as shown in Figure 9.3. It looks just
like the main site. Remember to keep your current path in mind (using the breadcrumbs and Up
One Level button) so you keep track of these sites and the page you’re using. Another thing to
consider is changing the theme of the subsite to make it easy to distinguish whether you are on
the top-level team site or the human resources team subsite.
