Removing Create Site Permission From Site Owners

  Asked By: Giovanni    Date: Aug 23    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1692

I don't know why I'm having such a hard time with this, but
would someone be able to explain the steps of removing the Create Site
permission from the Site Owners groups?

Basically what I'm trying to accomplish is to only have Site Collection
Administrators be able to create Sites, and noone else.

If anyone has a better way I'm all ears.

In the Top level site  of the Site Collection you want to go to Site Actions >
Site Settings > Advanced Permissions

From the Settings Menu select permission  Levels. Add a Permission level that
contains all Permissions except create  Sub Site Permission.

Go back to advanced permissions and access the Site Owners Group. Uncheck the
Full Control permission Level and select the new Permission Level you created
instead. Make sure to do the same with anyone else who has Full Control since
you can't delete that Permission level.

Once complete only Site Collection Administrators and those who have Full
Control can create Sub sites. Just remember that others can manage permissions
and may re-assign Full Control since you can't delete it.
