Have a Sub-Site that's not being used. However, there is a Sub-Site underneath it that is heavily used. Now the site owner wants to make the Sub of the Sub a new Top level Sub-site. Is it possible for someone who doesn't have site admin level permissions? If not, then I will just submit it up the chain in my environment. Thanks.
You can try the input and output operations mentioned by Mangler but this requires the permissions of the site admin .
Here is the guide source:
And here are some tips you should note:
1.Make sure you have deployed the same features and customizations to the destination site.
2.Before you import the sites, please create a new top site with the same site template with the site to be imported, and use this site path as the URL parameter in the IMPORTE command line.
With out using powershell, you can actually save the site as template, (it would be hard for sites with a lot of default features activated / deactivated)
On SharePoint admin, go to classic features then create the site from there, select the tempalate to 'select tempalte later',
When the site got created you will be prompted on what template you will use on that site, select the site template solution you uploaded then you're good to go.
Hope the concept shed some light! Happy Learning!
