Can I get sub sites (webs) to show up in a Site Directory

  Asked By: Anderson    Date: May 28    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1073

If I understand correctly one concept of a publishing site's Site
Directory it is to have a place where all new site collections
automatically get a list item entry witch includes meta data defined in
the sites list. What I want to do is apply this same concept to sub-
sites (or workspaces or webs) within a site collection. There are
elements in a publishing site that seems to support this – for example,
the sub site creation page `newsbweb.aspx' uses the meta data from the
sites list AND there is a site collection settings page to set the
which sites list to use for this data. However, when a sub-site is
created and the metadata is entered, I can find no place where this sub-
site metadata is captured – am I missing something?

When you create a site, you have the option to list  this site  in the
directory. You then select which categories you would like the site listed
within. If, however, you neglect to actually check the box to list the site,
it will not appear in the directory. Furthermore. Before a site is visible
to all users, the listing needs to be approved. If you want to modify the
categories and elements of your site directory, then go to the Sites list in
the site directory  site and modify the column settings  as needed.

I do not see the option to list  the site  (and again I am NOT asking
about site collections, but rather sub-sites  within a site
collection - please let me know proper terminology if I am stating
this incorrectly). I am aware of the this working ok for site
collections (where the site directory  entry needs to be approved),
but was hopeful that we could use the same priniple withing the site
collection for sub sites  (again the admin pages SEEM to support  this)

You only see the option to add the site  to the sites  list when you create the
site using the link inside the sites directory. However, you can always add a
manual entry  to the sites list  in the site directory  and have the subsite show
up. The additional dialog is added to the create page  based on the link you
kick it off from.
