Chapter 8. Working with Sites and Workspaces

So far in this book, there's been discussion about all the components and modules that make up the various sites and workspaces in SharePoint. Now, it's time to look more specifically at the sites themselves. In SharePoint, the site is the primary container or location for content on which a team collaborates. A SharePoint environment may only contain a few sites or thousands. This chapter discusses some of the different templates as well as the common usage scenarios of each.

In this chapter you learn the following:

  • What the difference is between a site, workspace, and site collection

  • How you can customize a SharePoint to achieve a particular look and feel

  • The SharePoint site templates server and common uses for each

  • The options you have for users to navigate across various sites within a site collection

After finishing this chapter, you should feel comfortable selecting the most appropriate template for creating a site. While the chapter discusses each site template in moderate detail, you may want to take the time to create a test environment with each of the primary site templates for reference and practice.
