How To Determine If A site Is A SharePoint Publishing Site

Hi all,

Sometimes in order to customize the navigation for your site, you would need to determine if your site is a publishing site or a non-publishing one. The reason is that the navigation customization options for a publishing site are more extensive than those available for a non-publishing site.Here is all you would need to do: 

Go to “Site Actions” menu –> Site Settings –> Look and Feel

  • If you see a link titled Navigation, then you are working with a publishing site and you can customize your site using the Site Navigation Settings page.
  • If you see links titled Top link bar and Quick Launch, then you are working with a non-publishing site and you have a more limited set of navigation configuration options available to you.
