I have created a Site Collection and then I define sub sites under it. Now I created a term Store and I linked to the site collection navigation and Wiki Column.

But all the sub sites will get the same navigation and Wiki Categories as their parent site collection;

So my question is if there is a way to define the Site Navigation and Wiki Categories on the sub site level , so each sub site will have unique term store, navigation and Wiki Categories column? Br

Sure, under /subsiteUrl/_layouts/15/AreaNavigationSettings.aspx you can define that the subsite will use a different Global or Current Navigation and also specify a termset to use

thanks for your reply, it worked for the navigation, but what about the Wiki Categories colum is there a way to link it to a unique term store also? – john G May 23 '13 at 14:58
Haven't really played around with Wiki categories, sorry – Robert Lindgren May 23 '13 at 14:59
another question ,, why i have to type the URL myself to access the subsite navigation. is there a link from the site setting menu instead? – john G May 23 '13 at 15:01
Yes the Navigation link under site settings (in the upper right column) takes you to the same spot, but the link was easier to provide ;) – Robert Lindgren May 23 '13 at 15:14
i tried to access the subsite Colum by going to ""site setting--> site Columns"" but the "Wiki Categories " column is disabled unline when accessing it from the site collection level. so this might mean that i can not assign unique value to the Wiki Categories column or other column for a sub site ?? what do u think ? – john G May 23 '13 at 15:55

i can modify the Sub Page Wiki Category column by accessing this column from the Library settings instead from the SubSite settings.

Just keep in mind that several Librarys can exist on the same sub web :) – Robert Lindgren May 25 '13 at 15:11
