Creating a New Subsite

This is a basic overview of the steps required to create a new subsite in Cascade.

  1. Plan the Information Architecture (IA) — or site outline — ahead of time.
  2. Following your existing Site structure, create the new folder (typically a Folder with Content Page) and any additional sub-folders needed to build out your planned IA. This main folder for the new subsite is referred to as its "root" folder. We recommend building appropriate empty folders for storage within the root folder using the following naming format: _images, _documents, _listboxes, _widgets, etc.
  3. Apply appropriate Banner Department Info and Banner Images to the root folder.
  4. Create a new access group and new users, when needed. Once the access group is set up and appropriate users have been added to the group, update "Access" for the new folder to include the new group. Remember to also update "Access for contents" of the folder. Detailed instructions are provided on the Managing Users & Access help page.
