A Multipage template (see Figure 9.70) is simply a Basic template with two additional blank
pages provided to do with as you see it (just like taking a Basic meeting workspace and

The Bottom Line
Create and customize a new site. Using the New SharePoint Site page, you can create a
new subsite or workspace from one of several templates, or you can create a new workspace

custom logos, lists, and libraries.
Master It After you create a new site, you discover you left a space in the URL, making

need to take to safely change the URL without breaking links to the site and its
subsequent subsites? Will anything fail the moment you change the URL?
Adjust a site’s settings for administrative purposes. You can configure sites to inherit or
set unique permissions on a site. You can also configure subsites to use tree view, manage
user alerts, place the site on the top link bar, adjust regional settings, enable features such as
RSS, and view usage reports.

parent site’s top link bar and then set the subsite to inherit the top link bar from the
parent, what happens when you click the Home link on the subsite?
