To create or clone a site, you need to go to the Commons Creation Portal page. There are two ways to get there – in each case, you need to be logged on to the Commons.
- First Way: On the Commons home page, click on the “Sites” tab and then click the “Create a Site” button.
- Second Way: Hover over your avatar (in the top right corner of any page) and hover over My Sites. One of the options that will appear is “Create a Site.”
You should now see the Commons Creation Portal, pictured below. All requests to create groups, sites and connected Group and Site are funneled through this page, as are requests to clone sites. Here you can easily pick what you want to create and how. To get started, click on Create A Site.
You should see the screenshot pictured below. Decide whether you want to “Create A New Site” or “Clone An Existing Site.” (The default is to create a new site.)
Depending on your choice, the creation process diverges. The similar pathways have some notable differences.
