Project "portal" on Sharepoint

I need to create a Projectportal (as a subsite to the Intranet Portal) where everyone (read users) can create a project (which should be a subsite to the Project portal site) where the subsite gets its own permissions upon creation. The projectsite are a template I've builded from a blank teamsite


Once a user has created a projectsite it should appear in a List on the frontpage of the projectportal


But I would also like that the "site actions" menu not are visible for the read user - they should just see a "Create a project link" on the frontpage of the Project portal site along with the List of projects.

Can anyone give me some pointers in achieving this or point me to a "how-to"?

I would suggest you have two webparts.


A webpart for your list of Project subsites.

Second webpart for your Create a project link button. Use the method Runwithelevatedprivilges to create the subsite, so your reader does not need site owner permissions to create subsites. This can also define which template your subsite should use.

Could you elaborate a bit more on the "Runwithelevatedprivilges" ?

Its a coding thing. You need to add the site with a declaration which allows read only users to create sites
