Topic Last Modified: 2013-12-18

Creates a new site in an existing site collection.

New-SPWeb [-Url] <String> [-AddToQuickLaunch <SwitchParameter>] [-AddToTopNav <SwitchParameter>] [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Description <String>] [-Language <UInt32>] [-Name <String>] [-Template <SPWebTemplatePipeBind>] [-UniquePermissions <SwitchParameter>] [-UseParentTopNav <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The New-SPWeb cmdlet creates a new site in the existing site collection specified by the Url parameter. You can create a site with a specific default language by specifying the Language parameter. If no language is specified, the site is created with the same language that was specified when the product was installed. You can create a site from a specific template by specifying the Template parameter. If no template is specified, the site is created and the template can be provided later or by the first user to log on.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Url

Required

System.String

Specifies the URL where the new site is to be created. The URL must be inside an existing site collection. The URL must be a valid URL, in the form http://server_name/site1.

Language

Optional

System.UInt32

Specifies the language template identifier for the new site. If no language is specified, the site is created with the same language that was specified when the product was installed.

The type must be a valid language identifier (LCID).

Template

Optional

SPWebTemplatePipeBind

Specifies the Web template for the new site. The template must already exist. If no template is specified, no template is applied and a template can be selected later.

Name

Optional

System.String

Specifies the title of the new site. If no title is specified, the default title is applied. The default title is configured for each template.

Description

Optional

System.String

Describes the new site. If no description is specified, the entry is left blank.

AddToQuickLaunch

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Adds this site to the Quick Launch.

UniquePermissions

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Specifies that this site is to be created with unique permissions.

AddToTopNav

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Adds this site to the top-level navigation bar.

UseParentTopNav

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Specifies that the same top-level navigation bar as the parent site is to be used for this site.

AssignmentCollection

Optional

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPAssignmentCollection

Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

NoteNote:
When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Displays a message that describes the effect of the command instead of executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters
