What is a sub-site?
A sub-site in SiteBuilder has its own local navigation menu. Optionally, you can have a different site design to the parent site. A link in the masthead enables visitors to navigate to the parent site.
For example, the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation is a sub-site of the Department of Politics and International Studies (PAIS). The sub-site has its own design and links to the parent department:

When should I use a sub-site?
Common reasons to use a sub-site instead of a section of standard pages are:
- when you need a standalone local navigation menu
- to help you organise and manage distinct parts of a large website that are significant enough to warrant their own identity and navigation – for example, the Modern Records Centre sub-site of the Library
- to make an intranet for staff or students in your department
