Hub Sites -> Communications Sites RRS feed

  • Question

  • In SharePoint Online, as a global admin, I created a modern Communications site. I then created a 2nd modern Communications site and registered this as a hub site (Register-SPOHubSite). I then went to the original communications site, settings -> site information and intended to associate this with my hub site, but the option to assign this site to a hub site wasn't available. Is there something I need to do to enable this option? I tried waiting a bit, refreshing the browser, but to no avail.

    I'm a site owner on both sites.

  • Hi PetyrBaelish,

    Can you share the information that you get when you run the next command, please?

    Get-SPOHubSite

    Notes from https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint-Blog/Organize-your-intranet-with-SharePoint-hub-sites/ba-p/174081

    Associating a site under a hub site

    Once a hub site is established, it’s then a two-click process to associate to the hub site.

     As the site owner, go to the site you want to have associated to the hub site. Click Settings (gear icon) > Site information > hub site association and select the desired hub.  You’ll only see the hubs you have permission to associate to. And then click Save. You will see the hub navigation appear above. The site itself will inherit the hub theme, and news and activities will begin to flow up to the hub site home page – along with a search crawl of content for any site associated to the hub site. And at any time, per a reorg or change in business direction, you can easily move sites between hub sites. This is the power of a dynamic intranet, one that can change and adapt with the ebb and flow of your ever-changing business landscape. Note: individual sites can only be associated to one hub site at a time.

    Best regards.

  • Thanks for your response

    I've ran Get-SPOHubSite and the output is the ID, Title, SiteID & SiteURL of the hub site I registered. The LogoUrl, Description and Permissions are blank.

    The link you have provided is the one I was working from, but upon clicking site information on the site (a modern communications site), there is no option for hub sites, just site name, site description, view all site settings & delete site.

    As previously stated I am a site owner for both sites (the hub site, and the one I want to join to the hub site).
