1 Answer 1


You'll first need to go into Site Settings and set "Community Site" as an allowed subsite template.

Site settings > Page layout and site template settings > Subsite templates

Move "Community site" across the right, then scroll down and hit ok. You'll also need to activate the Site Collection feature "SharePoint Server Standard Site Collection features" - this makes the community site available to create a subsite with.

Next, visit "Site content" and click "new subsite". You can now create a Community Site from the "Collaboration" tab.

As a side note, you should select "use unique permissions" for the community site, which ensures everyone has the right access levels.
