I have a SharePoint Hub site and I have created a sub-site using the Records Center template.

With this being so, I have attempted to Activate "SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure" under Site Collection Features.

This fails with the error: Sorry, something went wrong. An unexpected error has occurred. Correlation ID: 9058729e-60c2-6000-8a68-2afd92bbd61c

Microsoft support haven't been particularly helpful with this issue and just tell me it should work.

At the worst I can setup the Record Center site as a new site and then bind it to the Modern Hub Site if necessary.

Would just like clarification on whether enabling this feature is supported under Modern sites?

Classic publishing features are not supported in Modern sites. These sites are NoScript sites by default.

What's not supported on "modern" team sites -

-Custom master pages; more extensive branding will be supported later using alternative options.
-Enabling site or site collection scoped publishing features; technically, features can be currently activated, but this is not a supported configuration.

-Classic publishing features (WCM)

Reference to Microsoft Docs - Supported customizations on "modern" team sites

  • seems a bit silly considering the subsite is in itself a classic site. – surfnode Jun 18 '18 at 22:01
  • MS is pushing for a flat structure, which means if you want to use Modern sites, then you shouldnt be using subsites , just create new site collections. If you want to use classic features, then using subsites makes sense – Gautam Sheth Jun 19 '18 at 5:12
  • If I use this script it would enable these features. $scurl = "TENANT NAME.sharepoint.com/sites/SITE NAME" $AdminURL = "TENANT NAME-admin.sharepoint.com" Connect-SPOService -url $AdminURL Set-SPOSite -Identity $scUrl -DenyAddAndCustomizePages $false – surfnode Jun 19 '18 at 16:49
  • Yes, as mentioned, technically it is possible but not supported in modern sites. The publishing pages, in my experience, dont play nice on modern sites, i usually avoid them – Gautam Sheth Jun 20 '18 at 5:35
  • This will work when you create a modern team site. Choosing the second option for creating a Communication site doesnt allow the publishing feature to be activated. – Murtuza Husain Feb 13 at 8:40
