  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

    I have activated SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure for a site collection but when creating new sites I have to manualy to to Site Actions> Site Features> Manage Site Features and manually Activate SharePoint Server Publishing Feature for each site.

     

    Is there a way I can enable this for each site automaticaly.

    Thanks

  • Publishing Infrastructure is a site collection feature. For me it sounds as if you are talking about site feature. Here you would mean the Publishing Feature - not the Publishing Infrastructure feature.

    You might want to look into feature stapeling to apply a feature to different templates.

  • Whether the publishing feature is enabled or not depends on the site template. If you use the PublishingWeb template, then it will be activated. If you use a team site template it will not be activated.

    You could create your own site template with the specific settings you need to ensure that the Publishing feature is always activated.

  • Hi Thanks for your reply. It does work when we create a site template but its not ideal as we are going to be having different site templates.

     

    Is there not a way to enable this Publishing Infrastructure role for all templates?
