Creation of an "Empty Site"

  Asked By: Desmond    Date: Sep 25    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1627

Playing around with some of the FrontPage 2003 templates found on http://sharepointcustomization.com/wss/default.htm

Currently, all of my sites created are located in the sites directory (http://portalname/site/teamsite). When I create an "empty site" in FrontPage my only options are a subsite under the main team site and under the portal name (http://portalname/teamsite).

In SQL Enterprise Manager under 'portal-sitedb' there is 'sites' directory. Upon attempting to add a new URL for an empty site I am prompted for an ID.

Question: How would I create a empty site under the site directory?

You can create an empty  site in SharePoint using the normal procedure. But on the template selection page, DO NOT choose a template. Just close Internet Explorer.

Do you know of any other templates that will work in FrontPage 2003 and SharePoint?

I have been using FrontPage 2003 for creating my own templates. For instance, setting the background or adding interactive buttons to move to the pages in the site. If you do this on a dynamic web template it makes it so easy to make changes and then automatically apply them to all pages on the site. The process is all described on sharepointcustomization.com/wss/articles.htm.

Note that I have found it much better when using templates to create blank web pages in FrontPage rather than creating them in SharePoint. Otherwise the table from the template gets tangled with the table on the page created by SharePoint.
