PKS does work on the sub sites. You can refer the "Installation and Configuration Guide for PKS on Sub Site" document inside the "Sub Site Install - Config" folder which part of the PKS Documentation.

Hope this helps.

the installation guide talks about installing it on a sub site with publishing site template , but i want to install it on a new site collection but not the root site collection

example : i want to install it on a new site collection called "Multimedia" with URL  , can i do this with the same steps of installing it on a sub site or

it will be different steps , also the template of the site collection must be publishing portal or what ?

Hi Ekramy,

The site colleciton template has to be of type Publishing Portal.

You can install pks on subsite by following the instructions given in install guide. PKS supports this type of installation.

You can install PKS on the site collection at but you will have to make a lot of xsl changes which would be a time taking exercise. By default pks supports the http://<root site>/<sub site> kind of deployment.
