SUMMARY

Dividing a site into multiple subwebs makes it easier to perform administrative and authoring tasks, such as changing themes, publishing changes, and even finding specific files. In addition, if you have a large Web site, you can use subwebs to keep track of each author's work by assigning each author their own subweb. This article describes how to divide a large root Web into several smaller subwebs.

Divide a Large Root Web into Several Smaller Subwebs

In FrontPage 2002, you can easily create subwebs by right-clicking a folder in your Web and then clicking Convert to Web.

To divide a large root Web into several smaller subwebs, follow these steps:
  1. Open the Web that you want to divide into smaller subwebs.
  2. Organize your content into folders within your Web.
  3. Right-click a folder that you want to make into a subweb, and then click Convert to Web.
  4. When you receive a message similar to the following Changing this folder will cause pages in it to change:
    • Pages that include files may not be updated when included files change.
    • Hyperlinks on Navigation bars may be removed.
    Are you sure you want to do this? click Yes.
NOTES: If you want to use hyperlinks to move from the root Web to a subweb or between subwebs, you must use an absolute hyperlink like the following:
http://example.microsoft.com/examplesubweb
Also, if you use shared borders and navigation bars, you may experience some problems.
