Hello,

In SharePoint 2010, I've a site http://localhost/abc. I would like to create a sub site for abc like http://localhost/abc/def but when I create a new site, SharePoint always create a site in the same level like http://localhost/def.

Could you help me please ?

Thanks

Open site http://localhost/abc and then go to: Site actions --> new site --> select which site do you want (type site name (e.g. def and url e.g. def) and click create site.

It will create a site http://localhost/abc/def

when you open the "wizzard" "New Site" and you select a site Type. What does it say above the "URL name" input box (http://loca ..... ) ?

If it`s http://localhost/<URL name>

type in input box: http://localhost/abc/def

if it`s http://localhost/abc/<URL name>

then type def

sorry I just checked that it does not allow characters like '/'.

try using sharepoint designer 2010. Open your site http://localhost/abc click on subsite and create a new subsite !!

if it is http://localhost then you are not on the site http://localhost/abc.

Is abc a site or a page ?

go to http://localhost/abc/SitePages/Home.aspx
and then create a new site def.
you should be able to create
http://localhost/abc/def/SitePages/Home.aspx
as I posted before.

Otherwise you can try creating new site with SPD (image above).

If your url is http://localhost/abc.aspx then this is a page. So if you want to create a new page def with url /abc/def.aspx then create a new folder on localhost called abc and within abc create new def.aspx page.
