newbie: Creating sub-sites

  Asked By: Douglas    Date: Jul 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 8224


I have created a top-level Sharepoint Portal website. Now I would like to
create several sub-sites. When I click on the Sites tab and choose Create
Site, I see that my URL will be http://216.xxx.xxx.xxx/sites/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://216.xxx.xxx.xxx/sites/[MySiteName]

I really don't want to have the "/sites/" directory, I would rather make the
URL http://216.xxx.xxx.xxx/[MySiteName], but I cannot figure out if I can
remove the "sites" directory. Is this possible?

As what I understand, you have to have a starting point. /Sites/ is one of the managed path that SP define as default. If you don't like the name "Sites" you can define your own name and direct all site creations to that

Go to Admin Site and look under Managed Paths
