Root Site Collection

hi ,

i tried to install the PKS solution on a site collection other than the roor site collection , i tried to install it on the following site collection http://www.site.com/pks  but it doesn't work correctly , it works good only when installing it on http://www.site.com  , does it work only on the root site collection ? and if yes can i know why ?

Hi,

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  http://pks.demo.com/sites/multimedia  , 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  http://pks.demo.com/multimedia by following the instructions given in install guide. PKS supports this type of installation.

You can install PKS on the site collection at http://pks.demo.com/sites/multimedia 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.
