have all subsites inherit page layouts, but the root will have one additional that children do not have RRS feed

  • Question

  • I don't think this is possible, but a coworker asked me to find out.

    I want to have my subsites inherit page layouts from the root, but they want the root to have one additonal layout specific to the root.  Is this possible?  I was thinking that if you inherit you inherit everything.

  • /_Layouts/AreaTemplateSettings.aspx

    In top box: select subsites can use only the following site templates (rather than inherit). (check reset all)

    In second box: Pages in this site can use any layout
