THE SITE CREATION PERMISSIONS BUTTON
On the top-level site, the Sites And Workspaces page also has a handy Site Creation Permissions
link. (Subsites don’t have this feature, even if they themselves have subsites beneath them, if they
all inherit permissions from the top-level site.) Clicking the Site Creation Permissions button will
display a partial list of permission levels for the site.
By selecting the box beside a permission level and clicking OK, you’re assigning the Create Subsites
permission for that permission level (and therefore giving the power to create new subsites to any
groups or users with that permission level). The Site Owners group already has the right to create
subsites, and by default the Visitors group cannot have the right to create subsites, because they
have only read rights to the site. That leaves the Contribute and Design permission levels, both of
which could be granted with the Create Sites permission.
By clicking the permission level’s name, you can manually edit the permission levels to give each
level the specific permissions you want. See Chapter 12 for more about permissions and
Let’s create another site below the main site, so we can use the site template we made earlier:
1. Click Create .
2. Here you’ll find yourself at the familiar New SharePoint Site page (Figure 9.31). I’m going
to name the site Accounting and leave the description blank.
3. For Web Site Address, the path is already displayed, so enter the last part of the path
indicating the site. For my example, that is Accounting .
4. For the template selection, let’s apply the template we saved from the HR team site earlier.
If you click the Custom tab, you’ll see our custom template! Let’s pick that, leave all the
other settings at the default, and hit Create .
