My ideal situation is to have a "Preview" option available for subsites. I thought perhaps a good way of doing this would be to have a modal dialog pop up containing some of the subsite's information, including a brief description and a couple of recently added items. Is it possible to create this? Maybe if the modal dialog contains a data query webpart or something similar? Im new to this side of sharepoint so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
