Site Administration

Site administration can be performed using the Site Settings link of the specific site. This section discusses some of the administrative tasks that can be performed at a site level.

Look and Feel—Master Page

Each site can be applied with its own master pages. Using the Site Settings → Master Page option under the "Look and feel" section, an administrator can change the site master page or system master page and provide an alternate CSS file. For a child site, either the master page can be inherited from the parent or it can apply one on its own. Figure 23-24 depicts the site master page settings page.

Look and Feel—Navigation

Using the Site Setting → Navigation option under the "Look and Feel" section, the site's global navigation (top menu) and the current navigation (left navigation) can be changed. SharePoint Server 2007 provides options to include/exclude subsites, hide/show specific items, manually add links to customize the navigation, and sort. The options available in the navigation page are different for a top-level site and for a childsite. Figure 23-25 displays the navigation settings for a child site.
