SharePoint Server Publishing

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

Once the SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature has been activated for the site collection you can activate the SharePoint Server Publishing feature for the site.

Enable the SharePoint Server Publishing feature for sites where you want to use pages with more layout options than the standard wiki pages we have shown how to customize earlier in this SharePoint Online from Scratch series. The wiki pages are stored in the Site Pages library, while the publishing pages are stored in a separate Pages library.

In the demo below Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, shows how to enable the SharePoint Server Publishing feature for a site. He also points to some of the changes that take place at activation and that we will have a closer look at in the following articles.

When SharePoint Server Publishing is enabled and you add a page to the site, it will be of the publishing type and have have the check in/check out feature enabled by default. The publishing page has more layout possibilities than the wiki page and you can also create your own layouts.

The SharePoint Server Publishing also gives you access to the Master page feature. here you can specify a master page for the site and use an alternate CSS URL for the entire site and its subsites.

Another SharePoint Server Publishing feature is the Image Renditions, that lets you define different image formats.

Enable SharePoint Server Publishing for a site

First you must activate SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure for the site collection.
  1. Click on the settings gear and select Site settings.
  2. In the Site Actions group, click on the link 'Manage site features'.
  3. Scroll down to SharePoint Server Publishing and click on the Activate button.

The activation only takes a few seconds, and after that you will have a new Pages library in the Site Content and links to the Master page and Image Renditions settings under Look and Feel in the Site Settings.
