Cannot activate SharePoint Server Publishing for a subsite under Site Settings > Site Actions > Manage Site Features or Site Settings > Site Collection Administration > Site Collection Features.
I just get an error, or the infamous The feature being activated is a Site scoped feature which has a dependency on a Site Collection scoped feature which has not been activated. Please activate the following feature before trying again: SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure.
The parent site has it activated no problem.
Why can't SharePoint automatically activate necessary features as required if it won't let me manually enable them without getting errors. Extremely annoying, it simply will not activate on the subsite.
Has anyone ran into this scenario? Suggestions?
