Should you start with Publishing site?

  Asked By: Tabatha    Date: Mar 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1135

Do you usually create Team or Blank sites collections and turn on
Publishing, or do you start with a Publishing site and create Teams or
Publishing sub sites. We were going to have one main internet site
with Publishing turned on, but through our Navigation bar we want them
to be able to got to their own division sites with the same look and
feel, but with their information displayed. So, what would be the steps:
1.Create a Publishing Site collections
1.1 Then Team/Blank sub sites with publishing turned on and how do you
use the same master page and navigation.
1.1 Or if you turn off publishing on the team site, how do you use the
same master page and navigation.

2. Or Create a Teams / bnank sites collection with Publishing turnedom.
2.1 Then team sub site with Publishing turned on, and how do you use
the same master page and navigation.
2.1 Or if you turn off publishing on the sub team site, how do you use
the same master page and navigation.

I find it very difficult to use Publishing Sites but that's the
big "Branding Solutions" I hear for internet sites. Last of all, do
you really every mix publishing site collections with team sites?

This may be a very simple questions, but I find it very hard to work
with Publishing sites? And final questions, what is the difference
between a publishing site and a publishing collabrations site?

Sorry for all the questions. I just want to start developing this
framework to correct way.

I have been fighting this battle for the last few weeks.

I have a Team site  developed that needed to have sub-sites created
which implemented content approval.

What I ended up doing is keeping my top site as a Team Site and then
creating the sub-sites as Publishing Sites. This works because the
Publishing sites  also inherits the Team Site's Master Page
customizations. I am even able to create  the sub-sites via a workflow
where I specify the Publishing Template. Works fine (after a hellish
2 days of figuring out how to get it to work).
